Sewing Machine Cover

I have a hard cover that came with my sewing machine. I like to use that case when I take sewing classes. However, I don't like putting it on every time I finish sewing. I decided I was finally going to make a fabric one. Plus, it makes my machine pretty. As you can tell from my last several posts, I am on this patchwork kick that I just can't stop. I love the way patchwork makes a project look when completed. I am about to prepare to cut out 1700 small squares for another patchwork type quilt. It will be awhile before you see that outcome. I imagine 1700 squares will take me awhile. I have some pillowcases to share, but that will be later this week. I thought about doing a tutorial, but I thought the project seemed to simple to make a tutorial for. What do you think??

Sewing Summit is heating up!!

The planning is coming together for this year's sewing summit. I am so excited. So many of the people I have always wanted to meet are showing up in the Flickr group. There are some of you I still am keeping my fingers crossed to see you show up on flickr group. We are all starting to talk and come up with ways to get to the summit. You cannot beat the price of the room that Erin and Amy arranged for us. You have up to October to save for your airline ticket and room. Registration for the event doesn't start until February 2011 so start saving your allowance right now.

The schedule of the event has been placed on the website. Take a look and see if you squeeze your piggy bank into getting there. I want to meet you!! Click on the button above to check out the website!

Craft room revamp


My craft room has changed much over the years. I have had my stuff all along one wall and then spread out along several walls. I decided I liked the streamlined look and moved some stuff around recently. I had a white shelf sitting in a closet for about 2 years and finally used it. I have some project cards I have been working on. I plan to write out my plans for projects on them and hang them from the hooks. I will post once I finish them, which should be next week or so. I plan to paint the wall eventually, but nothing exciting. We rent, so therefore, we have been allowed to paint a nice tan shade. I think it will look nice with the craft room. I am currently working on the bedding and headboard for the spare bed in this room. It should be pulled together in the next month or so. I will post again when done with the bedding.

Update: Projects Galore!!

Some of the projects I worked on for the month of December. The table runner was for a swap I was in. You can find the tutorial here on Janssen Designs. The lunch bags are from Heather Bailey's new pattern, Jack and Jill Lunch Bags - you can find the pattern here. The other two patterns are crochet patterns I purchased on Ravelry. I had already made a cowl similar to the orange one just a month or so ago. I loved the gray one so much that I had to make an orange one. I made my mom a green one for Christmas.
I have plans to work on some quilts this year as well as just sewing again!! No more school to occupy my time!

I graduated!!

I officially graduated in August, but I didn't get to walk until December. It is a little strange to have free time. I am currently studying for the Licensing exam and preparing to take that test in the next couple of weeks. After that, no more studying!! What to do with all that free time?
