Here's a few things I've been working on. First, a Yankee Swap gift. In honor of my niece being home before her deployment we had Christmas in February, including our traditional festive Yankee Swap. I made this little gender neutral pouch and inserted a little something. I love Anna of Noodlehead's open wide pouch tutorial.
A MAJOR improvement to the new sewing room is this cutting and pressing station.
We had an Ikea base kitchen cabinet delivered to us, added four locking casters and a plywood top. A layer of batting and heavier home dec fabric finished off the top. It is important to ensure the fabric cover can be changed so right now the plywood is just sitting on the cabinet.
The height at almost 36" is a perfect working height for me.
The little folding ironing table near the sewing machine also got a new cover to match.
I have (finally) started to quilt the 2012 Craftsy Block of the Month. As a follow up, Craftsy offered a Leah Day class to quilt the top. I am really enjoying the class and learning some new FMQ'ing designs.
Lastly, a picture of our strange winter. Last weekend the ice houses were pulled off the ice due to the warm temperatures. This next weekend record breaking low temps are forecasted. I love New Hampshire.
