Well, the cabinet is not yet filled.  The top drawer has some scrappy cuttings that were in shoe boxes.  I put a collection of music themed fabric in one drawer as my other cabinets are full and I couldn’t add them to that.  The third drawer has 2 ufos in it, just so pieces stay together.

But, none of the drawers are full.  Nor are they organized as I want them to be.  They are more like In a Holding pattern while I end and remove some of tubs and see how I can best organize!  
this is ongoing.....

My "Home In The Woods" quilt is officially finished...........it is the big one I showed at the retreat, log cabins with  the applique border with flowers, bunnies, a bear and a cabin. I finally finished the label a couple of days ago and today I finished handsewing the hanging sleeve.............now to take some photos and post this one on my blog. I started it around 2004 doing a long cabin block swap so it is good to finally have the very last detail done.

I also wanted to make a few t-shirts. I got a mustard yellow jersey scrap from my DD friend 6 weeks ago. I wanted a t-shirt in that color so I went thru patterns..........in the end I pulled a t-shirt out of the closet that I liked the fit of and cloned it. It was a fun exercise to see if I could make a copy and just did a few tweaks. I made the shoulders wider and next time will trim them just a little..........they are better than the origional, just tiny bit too much. The shirt fits great and now that I have this pattern I am going to make a few more...............yep that will go on the blog too. Wanted DD to help me with some photos today but that did not happen so hopefully tomorrow and now I have one more item to photograph as well.

Well Cathy, one of those shoeboxes of scrap projects got worked on tonight!  About 3 years ago (maybe longer) I was using up scraps as a leader/ ender project, and started sewing them together in strips.  Then about 2 years ago I decided to make these blocks.  At some point I had to put it away.

Tonight they came back out because I was bored ( actually, I didn’t want to read captions for the show hubby was watching.). I made about 15 more blocks.  I should have enough to sew together while at retreat get-away in June!


one more empty box.

Yes, and I really like to sew something mindless as I go from seam to seam on a current project rather them just a scrap of fabric.  I like ending on fabric and have less threads around.

I finally got some photos of my finished carpenters wheel quilt top tonight, late evening sun is so beautiful on bright colors! I got it posted on my blog https://enchantingquilts.com I wish I could quilt this as I love quilting best and this has so much potential for beautiful designs with feathers and such..............it will just have to wait till I am reunited with my longarm. In the meantime I will just keep working on making more clothes and a few quilt projects.

Good plan to finish another UFO.  I was working on several before I was diverted to masks.  Only the 2 child's masks to make and then back to moving some quilts out of the sewing room!
