I have some up to date pictures showing the progress I have made in my craft space.  Sorry so long in posting.  There has been a lot of life going on around here lately.  Today I took time to take pics and now I am going to post them.  I hope you enjoy them.  

The closet is a little neater now.  I actually got rid of a lot of craft stuff, which I gave to my daughter and granddaughter. I can actually walk into the closet now, but now I can't find anything!  lol  Isn't that always the way?

Ok now for the rest of the space.

This is just outside of the closet.

My sewing Machine.  The little white clear draws can be pushed under the sewing table when I am working on a quilt. Or I could leave it to help support my quilt.

My cutting table.  Can you believe it?  I can actually use the whole thing! lol 

The space behind the door.  It is not ideal, but it works for me.  Do you see where I put one of the fans that was originally in my closet? Yep it is peeking up over the cutting table.
Well I hope you enjoyed this little tour. Now I believe I will cut out some fabric for a cover for my sewing machine.  I will post pics later.  Thanks for stopping by

What I Have Been Up To

Hi everyone.  I know it has been forever since my last post...again. I have been keeping myself busy though.  I have not finished my quilt pillow yet. All I have left to do is the quilting, which is really not hard at all.  I've just been so pre-occupied with my house lately.

I have been cleaning my kitchen.  I went through all my cupboards and kept somethings and donated somethings to the Salvation Army.  I have most of it done. I am left with under the sink and the dreaded filing cabinet! Some how that filing cabinet has become a catchall for stuff I don't know what to do with.  Does that ever happen to you?  The top drawer is loaded with papers; papers I have sort of, kind of, filed.  It is a total mess!

When I finish that I get to tackle my bedroom/craft space and the closet.  I didn't think of taking before and after pictures of the kitchen, but I did take before pics of my craft space and closet.  So I will share those with you here.  It has really gotten out of hand as you will see. 

Okay, WHAT A MESS!!!
Now you can see why I have been so preoccupied with my house. If I let it get any worse, I could be on the Hoarders show on tv.

So those are my before pics and as soon as I get one section done. I will put up pictures of that section. And when the next part is done, I'll post more pictures and so on and so forth.  Just keep in mind that it will take me a while to do this because I am disabled and have to sit down often because of the pain in my back and hips. Not complaining!  I can get it done little by little. And I will be so happy when it is done!  

You probably can tell that I have way too many hobbies.  Lol, I agree with you.  I am seriously considering giving up some of them.  I have three of my favorite hobbies, which are; quilting, paper crafts and crochet.  So I will be donating other things to my daughter and grand daughter.

Well, I am off for now.  Hope you all have a great weekend.

Block for Quilt Pillow

Well here is my pillow pocket for the quilt pillow I am working on.  Don't look too close, please.  I had a little trouble with my points, but okay for a beginner.  Thanks for stopping by.

Have you made a memory today?
