Being a quilter in Central Oregon is heaven! We have 9 shops all within a 45 minute drive and they all have their own appeal. And now, I have added Portland to my quilting life! I will be sharing my shopping, projects, mistakes, successes and travels...all things quilt!...so come join me in my world of quilting, books, movies and restaurants!
Hard to believe there are only 2 days left in January...time is flying and when you are a Nana...time is counted in the ages of your grandchildren. This little guy turned 2 this week!!! How did that happen?
One of the challenges of having my sewing room in Sisters is that I keep forgetting some important items that allow me to work on projects in the city...like that pesky quarter inch foot...how did I get so dependent on this tool. Freezer paper...forgot...which means I could not sew my next Halloween BOM block, drats. I do have the whole month but thought it would be fun to get it done right away. At least I cut it out. Not being able to sew this one block has made me focus on this wall...Since most of my Asian decor has ended up in the city I already have a "modern" type of quilt in mind for this wall to cover up the electric panel but still allow it to be accessible. Of course the fabrics are in Sisters....hummm...
I did discover a new product at Fabric Depot for fusing my wool...now to see if my love affair with Steam a Seam Lite 2 can be surpassed...of course all my wool projects are in Sisters...do you see a theme here!? I will give an update after I have tried it out.
I never ceased to be amazed by the sheer volume of fabric at Fabric Depot! This creation...well it kinda creeped me out!
But, there was a whole carousel of fun sewing theme'd fabric!....none of which I purchased!!!
