Back into the swing of quilting...

Well this is the set up of my little crafty area. This pic is of my "inspiration corner". It's filled with things I love and pictures on the wall that make me happy and get my creative juices flowing.


After unpacking the last of the boxes the other night I am now free to potter away in here. So I've realised that I only have a few weeks left before the end of Winter - which was the goal to finish my quilt. It's long enough now - just needs to be a bit wider. I've tried to only use 2 squares of matching material which is proving challenging - but a very good excuse to get lots of fat quarters or scraps of materials from op shops!!!

I'm loving my new "self repairing cutting mat", fabric cutter, and chalk pencil!! Makes cutting and pinning squares sooo much easier!

thanks for your comment. It made me laugh, as yes by the time I've organised myself to clean up half the day is gone also. Music helps....
