This is my applique chair. It is comfy and I can sit and stitch away the evening, or a Sunday afternoon. Would anyone like to come and join me? The top on the arm of the chair is getting wool appliqued flowers, but they will be done on the machine. The stained glass sunflower (one of my favorite flowers) was a gift from a very talented friend who lives in Texas.
And here we have the one part of the room that didn't get moved! This is my four legged quilting buddy, Miss Izzie! She is a guinea pig with attitude! I asked if she'd like to pose for posterity, but she was too busy attacking her water bottle! Below her is an extra bin of fat quarters, most of which I have been collecting for years...I want to do a blue scrap quilt in civil war reproduction fabrics.
My other quilting buddy wanted his picture taken too...how could I resist that face!
Lastly, I had to share a Christmas gift from my sister. What a beautiful basket! The inside is furnished with two bins to hold my supplies, and she had tucked in this handmade shaker style pin cushion. The top of the basket is the most gorgeously finished piece of wood and hinged so I can open just one side. I think now that things are clean, looking somewhat new and organized I can settle back and get to sewing. Only question is, what is today's project...those wool flowers? A block of the wedding quilt??? Decisions, decisions! Which reminds me. I promised myself I'd make a list of the top 5 projects to pull from the UFOs and work on for 2007. If I work through those I may actually get something finished this year-really finished! Now wouldn't that be just fine!!
