Friday Night Sew in!!!

Ugh... Where to start. I knew that Friday night sew in was this weekend, but thought that I was going to be making the drive to Fallon, Nevada to spend time with Keith. Well as with anything else plans changed and I ended up making that drive last weekend instead of today. So this week I oficially started leave pending seperation from the Navy and I have take the new found time to be lazy of course but also get some much needed cleaning, and organizing.

My goal is to have the house clean an as much of the things that were laying around either put away or thrown away before Keith gets home. I am planning a few nice dinners for when he gets home since shortly after Thanksgiving he will be leaving for deployment.

So lets get to the topic of this post... FRIDAY NIGHT SEW IN!!!

So lets all get together and get sewing!! I'm not sure yet what I am going to be working on but I have been cleaning up and making room in the sewing room ALL day.. so after a little more cleaning.. some vacuuming and the some decision making I will be getting to that sewing I have been wanting to do for months!!

Here is a little glimpse of what the sewing room looks like now.. I thought I hd before pictures but I can't find them.. well I am off to clean, eat my dinner, pick a project and sew for the evening ... ENJOY!!

Looking for....

So I'm home from San Diego got lots of great information about how to write a resume and get a job etc. But before I can do that I have to finish some classes and try to get into the VA work study program. Since both colleges that I need to take classes from are already in the middle of classes I have to wait until the next session.

I have been walking around today looking at what I can work on in the mean time and I found this super cool fat quarter bundle. I know exactly what I want to do with it but I need to find the perfect pattern. Does anyone know if a good throw size quilt that uses fat quarters? I have 16 fat quarters that I want to split in 2 piles and make a his and hers throw. I think that it would be something nice for Keith to come home to.

Well last week I had a bit of time to surf the net and I found this:

you can read more about it here. I know that I am starting a little late but I can't wait to see what the designers talk about. Looking forward to catching up.
