Weekly W.I.P.

Rag Rug:
Here are some pictures of the progress I made. Over at Country Threads Chicken Scratch , Mary is hosting a Rag Rug A-long. I am having fun making my first rug. The one thing I have to remember here is I need to work on each end. Have to meet in the middle of the rug to finish. It is super easy. I am using Homespun strips. I don't have a lot of scraps so I purchased some 2-1/2" jelly rolls.

 I've been going over to That Quilt! for help and ideas. She's done several DJ quilts. IF you haven't been to her blog, its a MUST if you are going to make this quilt! 

So here are my 5 blocks for the week:

A.1 - I paper pieced this block.

A.2 - Another paper pieced.

A.3 - This block I appliqued the center. I didn't follow That Quilt's tutorial. I decided to take the shorter route and just applique the center.

A.4 - Paper pieced.

A.6 - Rotary Cut. Wonky picture. I need to take better photos.

FINALLY I am going to have a "CAVE" all to myself again! Its still in the making and hope to have it done sometime in February. Everyday my husband been out there working away. The problem we will have is when he finishes the siding. The work stops and wait for the Hawaii County to issue the permit and do an inspection!!! We've already submitted the plans late October. As of now, we haven't heard anything from them! *sigh* It is a BIG BIG issue here!

Anyway, here are pics of the my new cave!

Size: 24x28 with a walk-in closet! YAY
Notice the blue skies in the background?

I will be posting pictures weekly.


Prairie Moon Quilts is hosting a Studio Organizing Challenge 2016. Since I do not have a Studio just yet, I decided to do the entire house. The first challenge is "Deal with paper clutter!" I wish I had taken pictures of what my desk looked like. I do have pictures of what is looks like now. Here is my desk and island. All nice and clean. Paper toss, shred, filed away. YAY! In a way, I am glad I didn't take any pictures. You will think I am a paper HOARDER!

Desk all nice and neat.


Sneak Peek: Here is itty bitty section of my sewing area. I needs organizing!
All fabrics, notions, etc... are right now in storage units! Can't wait for the "cave" to be done!

Hoping you've had some time to stitch this week. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
