new block and improvements

I finally found my cords that will allow me to download pictures. I spent this past weekend adding much needed vertical storage. I put up a couple of shelves. I wanted two sets on each wall but I had the wrong stuff and I couldn't find anymore. That I wanted.

I then put up a pegboard. I know some people paint them to blend in but I couldn't find the paint that I used on the walls.

I also got to thinking about where I wanted my rulers that they wouldn't get in my way. So it dawned on me to use what I thought of as wasted space. Turned out to be valuable space close to my cutting table and much more organized and out of sight when not in use.I have a wall of closet space except for behind these two doors. The wall these are mounted to is the back of a closet that is in the bathroom.

I have lived here for seven years and just now thouht to use this.

I finished Bonnie Hunter's Midnight Flight block in Quiltmaker's 100 blocks book. I did a LOT of ripping on this block but I do like it. I changed it just a little. I don't have any orangy yellow so I made the little orangy squares red. I really like the way it looks. I am going to make it into a quilt. But I have learned I will have to be VERY careful or else I'll be ripping out a lot of stitches.
Now I will get back to cutting up my scraps into usable sizes. I have almost emptied one big bin of scraps. When done that will leave me with one more to go. This made me very happy to see the progress.

  1. Your block is cute! And I laughed out loud when you admitted living there for seven years and overlooked that storage possibility! I've overlooked the obvious more times than I can say. :O)
