I found these great buys yesterday at the Goodwill Store.  I thought the pant hanger would be a great quilt hanger and I was right.  Cherie I thought of you with your great quilts and organizing skills that this might be something you would like.

I saw this quilt at a Quilting store today and I really want to make one. I didn't buy the pattern but I think I can draw it out and create my own.  I can see it made up  with alot of colors and bling.

I've been working on making quilts this week.  I've made 7 quilt tops and put 5 together while finishing 2 tonight.  
Two skirts that are getting a makeover they will soon appear as something sweet and totally different!

I made a new folding ironing board to keep by my sewing machine at the beach.  I just love the sewing fabric on the ironing board.  I also made a footstool table out of an old coffee table so I can rest my legs when I sit on the couch.  I painted the legs beach blue and used fabric that I bought to make a valance for my living room and had extra.

I bought these at the Flea Market fonr $22.00 My husband is going to use them as a pattern. There is a place that gives wood scraps away every day big enough to make the mailboxes.  The man gave them to me 1/2 price when I bought bought of them:  I'm at the beach now and can't wait to start quilting again:

Just made these Minnie Mouse table center pieces for a lady who bought the yellow outfit for her little girl's birthday. I think I'll go back and cut the ribbon a little more.  $12.00 each if anyone is interested:) Starting to pack my stuff to move to the beach for the summer so I might not be back on for 2 days. I have to get my sewing stuff together as most of my clothes and other items stay there so I don't have to pack everything.  I bought some new white bookcases and shoecase to stack and make room for my sewing stuff.  I'm taking my new sewing machine too as yes it's still in the box. When back to Hobby Lobby yesterday got 16 more patterns for $16.00 instead of $263.84. I love it as I just wanted 1 thing on some patterns.

 I love grand openings special sales:)  I bought 10 patterns for $9.99  instead of $164.99 today at Hobby Lobby. I can't wait to use a few fat quarters for some of these items! Limited 10 today only.

Yes I did bring this new toy home with me:) I fell in love with this Shabby Chic storage chest with 20 drawers at our new Hobby Lobby.  I'm going to put my ribbons and lace along with some folded fat quarters in it.  My daughters boyfriend gave me a gift card for Christmas and the teacher I work with gave me a gift card today so I went by this evening and bought it. Yeah for me I love it!!  Sometimes you just have to buy yourself a end of the school year gift right??? RIGHT!!  Now where to put it is the biggest question my room is full but I'll find a place if something else has to go. My sewing will have to wait.

Well not much sewing this weekend as we had family time as my Son In Law leaves to go back to Korea Thurs. until Sept.. I've been doing a lot of cooking, keeping Harley and Prince and riding horses along with staying with Dad. School has been crazy with this being the last week and packing up as I'll be in a different classroom next year. Makes things a little hectic. I did buy a new sewing machine a Brother SQ9050:)  I'll try it out when John leaves until then it's all about family!
