Shelving Project


This week we have been doing a shelving project. In June we got 18 tons of shelving( I think I mentioned it)

This week we got rid of some of it to a FOL bookstore. It was cool to watch a empty room transformed in 3 days.. Fun sort of, and at the same time - I'd rather be quilting/knitting! Actually did take my needles to the store and did a few rows. The thing that is the most annoying about knitting is that I can't really stop in the middle of the row unless I want to mess up. I'm getting faster though :)

My dad is a farmers market manager and so I get to go there on Saturdays. It is really fun - the people are nice and the food is awesome! Good place to work on a project, am debating on yarn or quilting this week!

Hope you all have a good day,

Not much quilting


I have not been doing a lot of quilting or blogging lately. The days seem to rush by and I don't get anything done!!

My current project is a doll quilt, then a twin size I have to finish quilting, and then a king size quilt for my mom. My goal is to use the bargello center, and put a 50 inch border around it using sampler blocks in varying shades. My hope is to have a common color though.
I also hope to enter it in the Sisters Oregon quilt show, that is my goal.

My newest hobby is knitting. A few posts back, I said I hated it(removed said post) and that it was frustrating. I have a new look on it now, and I just hope I can keep doing it. Somebody showed me that was a teacher, and that helped a lot. I am having fun with it :)
