Willow Weave dancing in the Rain is a Finish

 Just finished my Willow Weave I made with Doreen's Sew along for the month of June !  Very easy and fun to do !
    I used a jelly Roll of Dancing in the Rain with a Kona bone background
   Now I need to decide if I want to add a border or just leave it like it is  ?

I can't wait to see what Doreen has  planned for August !

THANK YOU Doreen for a wonderful and fun sew along !!!

My sewing Room

          Carol is having a Show your Sewing Room Day today and I thought I would join in !
This picture is looking into my sewing room as you enter the door......... As you can see I use the right side of the room for my office and the left side for my sewing
Here is a closer look at my sewing area.  These cabinets hold all of my sewing supplies & my precuts

This is how I have the top of this cabinet decorated. These  are all gifts that have been given to me except for the jars holding my spools of thread are from Ikea
  I keep my finished quilt tops in this basket that are ready to be quilted
          On the right side of the room is my office.  Yep !  There is my Willow Weave on the design wall.

                                                   Top of the office cabinet

in my closet I keep my project boxes , quilts in progress and my stash grouped by color. On the floor of my closet to the left is my Civil War Stash , the basket  in the center holds items I am selling on Ebay & the basket on the right holds my shipping supplies
This area has my cutting table , Wicket shelving to display my finished quilts and bookcase to hold quilting books & patterns
Hope you enjoyed my tour !   I know I am a very lucky girl to have my own Sewing Room / office . I am in hear every day sewing and blogging :-D

 Mary at   Quilt hollow has a wonderful offer right now.  $45.00 to quilt your Gentle Art Quilt for the month of June.  That price includes the batting and thread too ! WOW !  I wanted to show you a picture of one of the 2 Spools quilts Mary quilted for me last year I have hanging in the sewing room .  She quilted it in the Spools & threads  design the same design she is offering to quilt on  your  Gentle Art quilt
 Before I go I wanted to show you my Mother's Day gift from my hubby . Hubby asked me what I would like so ..... I told him about this stool that folds flat that  I saw at Ikea .  It was out of stock online before Mother's Day but when I checked last week that had it available to order YEAHHH!   We live over 1 hour away from our Ikea so it was just perfect to have it shipped here .  I love it !  It will be great to use when I am cutting and preparing my applique
