Organizing My Sewing Room

Hello friends

I have been organizing my sewing room.  I think organizing is my favorite thing to do. Don't get me wrong. I do love sewing and quilting, but having everything right where I need it to be, is awesome. I find myself more productive when I am organized.

As promised, here are the pictures of my new table with the shelves underneath... I still need to get a few more bins...


I also cut fabric for the take 5 quilt-- 
I will be starting this one after I finish the memory quilt I'm working on.
                              Love the fabric and colors of this one :-)

Hello 

Welcome to the last Sunday of 2017!

I have been inspired by my quilt club girls to get a little more motivated to do more quilting...  They can really quilt!  So what I decided to do is get my quilt room organized.  My husband is making me an 8 foot table with storage shelves underneath.  I need more storage for all those gadgets & gizmos that go along with quilting & sewing.   I find it hard to work when it's too cluttered.   I will share pictures when done. (I can't wait!)  :-)

Here are a couple of quilt projects I am working on...

This one is going to be a memory quilt.
 This one is a Christmas wall hanging.
I want to wish you and your family 
a very Happy Healthy 
New Year 2018!

The Candy Cane Legend



Have you heard the legend of the Candy Cane?...

The Legend of the Candy Cane!  
The story is told of a Candy maker who wanted to make a candy the would help us remember what Christmas is really all about.  So he made a Christmas Candy Cane. He incorporated several symbols for the birth and life of Jesus Christ.

He began with the stick of pure white, hard candy. White to symbolize the virgin birth and sinless nature of Jesus. the hard candy is to symbolize the solid rock, the foundation of the Church and firmness of the promises of God.

The Candy maker made the candy in the form of a "J" to represent the name of Jesus.
It also represented the staff of the "Good Shepherd".

The candy maker then included red stripes, he used three small stripes and a large red stripe to represent the suffering Christ endured at the end of his life.

Merry Christmas!

A journey Through Time Wall Hanging -


Hello Everyone,

I have been working on a very special memory wall hanging - 

This is a journey through time wall hanging made with shirts that Shawn Farley has worn to work everyday.  I made this special wall hanging for my very dear and special cousin Heidi.   Heidi and I are more like sisters than cousins.  We have some great memories growing up!  I always loved our family trips to Washington CT visiting the cousins :-) --  Great times & great memories!!

In this memory wall hanging every block has a story to tell with a special meaning behind each and everyone.

Shawn was very well loved and had many dear friends - He is truly missed by all! 

Here are a few pictures... 
This is the back - I put an angel on the label
