I am working on my biggest ever sewing DBIL is designing a skirt to go all the way around our RV for the Winter

Wowser .. that IS a huge undertaking.  Fortunately, I don't think it will particularly intricate .. just a LOT of fabric.  :-)

not something you'd want to sew on a FW!

Well there are many pieces. 34 yards of 61 inch wide vinyl fabric. 14 big zippers. More parts than you would think. DBIL is doing all the planning, measuring, cutting and snap setting. I just sew what he tells me. This takes the biggest sewing project I have ever sewn. No quilting today.

Sounds like a lot of work but it's going to be so amazing when you're through.

Love your hexi cubes - it will be fun to see how you decide to quilt them.

Talk about a huge project.  It should help the RV stay warmer though - and just in time since cooler weather is headed to the west side of the country - even AZ is going to get cooler.  Starting tomorrow we'll be in the 40s in the mornings when we go out walking - brrrr.

Our water in the RV froze twice last winter, once for 2 weeks. We left for quarantine before Winter was done. It has already frozen once this Fall during the cold front I October. This skirt will keep out the wind as well as we can heat that space just enough to keep the holding tanks from freezing.

I'm still working on UFO's and Block Bins.  Another 4-Patch quilt for Project Linus and the leftover fabric from My Christmas Heaven made into 4.5" Four Patch Blocks.  Not sure where I'm going with the Christmas blocks but I wanted to used the remaining fabric and get it made into something useable.  There are 164 of the Christmas one.  

and I've been actually quilting some of the previous UFO's in my "expanded" setup in my sewing room.  The cabinet is not for the Singers I have, but will accommodate several of my machines. I pulled the cabinet up next to my big desk and it's working really well for support of the quilts.  I wanted something I could setup quickly when I got in the mood for FMQ. This is my answer.  I have other machines setup in the Living/Dining area.

Wish I could enlarge your photos Tucky so I could see details. 

For example, in the bottom photo, what is the thing on the upper right in front of the Venetian blinds?

This is my downstairs bedroom, that I use for a sewing room.  There is a serger under a cover and a large rectangular crystal vase that I keep rulers in.  It was a "mother's gift" at my sons wedding.  They even had it etched MOM.  Took me a couple of years to figure out using it to "my" best advantage.  I rarely do flowers anymore, as I no longer have my huge rose & orchid garden.  Further to the right is a TV stand with sewing items on the shelf and a three draw plastic cabinet filled with cut squares, fat quarters and some strips.  Behind the chair is where the machine & cabinet are normally. 


The ironing board & design wall (flannel backed tablecloth) grace the wall where you see the 4-patch sq quilt, waiting to be quilted.  I am divorced so I use the living/dining room for sewing with friends and part of the garage is setup for cutting & basting.

Certainly not the fancy, expensive setups & rooms that many have for sewing/quilting. I'm blessed to have a home big enough to support my fabric habit.  Better yet I can use it any way I want.   LOL
