Design Wall Monday, Feb. 25, 2013

There is nothing on my wall this week. There has been no sewing this past week. There has been tons of cleaning and painting and organizing and dry-walling and ceiling repairs. And most of that has been done by Scott and our wonderful son-in-law, Matt. The last of the big jobs is almost done. There was some damage in the ceiling of the basement that had to be repaired. The new dry wall is up, and the taping and "mudding" of it is under way.
My primary job today was to go over to the apartment and be there when the gas fireplace people came over to give a demonstration of how it works. While I was there, I decided to start unpacking the box of fabrics that I had purchased way back at the beginning of the year. I had found some new fabrics with stripes printed on the diagonal to use for bindings. I've got them rolled on to their mini bolts and ready to live on their shelves.They'll eventually look something like this, although I'm sure there will be some rearranging going on.
That area to the right of the shelf is where my cutting table is eventually going to live.
And I also found in that box, some really pretty
 fat quarters. I wish I could remember if I had any specific plans for these when I ordered them.
LOL!! I guess I'll just have to come up with a new idea.

And here is a picture of the fireplace, turned on and cranking out heat, to turn a chilly basement into a lovely warm and inviting space.
It's beginning to feel like home.
I'm linking up to Judy's Design wall Monday at Patchwork Times


  1. You have a lot going on even if it is not quilty at the moment

  2. what a lovely idea to turn your stash into a "library"

  3. My goodness! Lots going on - no wonder you haven't found time or opportunity for sewing :*) And isn't it nice to find "new" fabric you forgot you had? LOL!!! Love those bias stripes, I have my own collection of them.

  4. DOn't you love it when you find great fabrics in your stash that you forgot about?!? What a lovely fireplace to quilt by!

  5. Oh Cathy, this post brought tears to my eyes -- you're so close to being able to move in! That makes me incredibly happy for you!! Your mini bolts look fabulous! Your little FQs are cute -- I'm sure you'll figure something out for them -- especially love that big ol' sunflower fabric! :)


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
