Early Spring Cleaning

In the past couple weeks, this is the only fabric work I've gotten to...and that was only because I was watching a 2-hour show on 60's music on PBS. This is a small piece I started in Melody Johnson's class at Hudson Valley last year. The fabric is silk broadcloth...it just needed to be quilted. Now it's ready to be either bound and hung, or made into a pillow or bag or incorporated into clothing.


I have to say that the quilting is my least favorite thing to do, and this is about the biggest piece I want to tackle myself. My real joy comes from the fabric and sewing parts of the process...that's why I send my larger pieces out now to be quilted.
I have been cleaning out closets and getting rid of my larger clothes...feels great. And that led to deep cleaning of the closets and basement etc....22 years in one place and we've accumulated alot of stuff. It's time to purge a bit. So that's mostly what I've been doing the last couple weeks... oh, and planning for a baby shower, buying a new car, planning a trip to Florida, ordering a new fence for the yard (installed tomorrow), watching American Idol, Biggest Loser, and my absolute favorite Project Runway! Tonight is the final...and re-runs are on all day today!
