DWM 1-2-17

This is my design wall. Kind of scary, overwhelming to say the least. I have had one week away from full time employment and it has been a super power sewing week. Now not all of this was sewn this week but a lot of it was plus a good bit that there was no room for on the wall. I have done a lot of sewing on Bonnie Hunters mystery for 2016.

 Here is my first block. I am working on the additional quarter square triangle for the sashing strips. I have most of the cut out but not all sewn together .

Hopefully this week I can settle more in to this retirement thing and find a balance. I have quite a bit of quilting to do this week and hope to get to it in the next couple of days. My longarm machine is in a building behind the house and while is heated I don't like to go out there when it is super cold and that is the prediction for next weekend here. Maybe I can get something of my own quilted and then I will be able to sit by the fire and stitch the binding. It is a rainy Monday here with storms predicted for later today or tonight so I may not do a much sewing today, but maybe a little cleaning and organizing.

Until later, happy stitching,



  1. Your block looks great, I look forward to seeing your quilt come together.

  2. Yay! Your design wall looks just like MINE! Enjoy the journey; "finished" is overrated. :-) It looks like you have several fun projects in progress.

    1. glad to know I am not alone in this chaotic lifestyle I love

  3. I am in awe of quilters who work on just one project at a time. My design wall would look like yours if I had my projects on it. Your En Provence block looks great! I hope to have my first one done soon.

  4. Lots of wonderful things happening on your design wall!! Best wishes for a fabulous retirement. What an exciting time for you!!
