What's Going On In the Sewing Room?

I was looking around my sewing room the other day and this is what caught my eye...

Hooray!  Finally a thread catcher and pin cushion that matches the lovely minty green color of the room.  Pattern is here.
I love selvages!  My two jars, separated lights and darks, are getting full.  I need to make more selvage blocks!
 What to do with these cross stitch finishes?
 These bags contain scraps from projects that I have been reluctant to separate.  I need to bravely dig into some of these this year.
 And in exciting news, I've started two quilts!  More fun details to follow!
 Looking around the sewing room I noticed what I thought was an over abundance of low volume fabrics.  So I cut a bit up thinking I was finally going to make that low volume scrappy quilt that's been on my wish list for a while.
 Hmmmm...seems like it is more like a "not quite a low volume" quilt. But I will continue!
 Progress in the sewing room has been slowed down by beautiful winter weather here at the lake.

Wishing you a lovely day wherever you are!


  1. I really like your so "low" volume quilt.

    1. Thanks Donna! I think I just need to think of it as something other than "low volume!"

  2. I love the low-ish volume! Have you seen Vonna Pfeiffer's cross stitch finishes? She has some lovely things. My mom gave me a pile of things she finished but never framed and I'm hoping to get some of them finished.

  3. Your low-volume quilt top is beautiful! Your fabrics are so interesting; this is a quilt that could be looked at for hours just to enjoy the different prints and how you combined them. Thank you for sharing your work-in-progress. I can't wait to see more of it!

    1. Thanks Juliana! I suspect this is going to become one of those side projects for when I need a little mindless sewing. It will get finished!!

  4. Instead of low volume, perhaps this quilt should be called Dim the Lights!!

  5. Your quilt has lots of spice! Nice job.

  6. A great thread catcher is so handy. Even better if it matches the room! I think your selvage containers are great. Mine are stuck in ziplock bags. And your low volume quilt is stunning.


How nice of you to take the time to comment!
