Finally a Door



Finally after almost 10 years in this house, we installed a door on my Rose Room. The Rose Room is off of our Master Bedroom. Since the Rose Room is above our garage and has the sloped ceiling it is not insulated as well as the rest of the house. We've been dealing with it by hanging a blanket in the doorway. But now we have a new door. Yeah. And I ran to Home Depot after we got it installed and picked up a door handle with a lock. (Now I can keep it locked while not in there so little fingers will not get a hold of the scissors) We still have some trim to install, and I have to go to Sherwin Williams tomorrow and get some white paint to paint it. It's a happy day.

Fabric Finds at JoAnn's today...

First I found the Alexander Henry Willow Shrooms, Audrie at Blue is Bleu had blogged about finding it the other day.
The others I found were in the clearance section marked down to $3/yard, so I had to pick up some of the fun colors.

New Patches for the Latest Quilt

Here are a few of the latest patches I've been working on. I'm going to put them together with Kona Coal (gray) fabric as the sashing. I got my inspiration from Alissa at Handmade by Alissa . I like how it's coming together so far.

Finished Quilting

I actually finished quilting this quilt last Tuesday. I sewed the binding to the edge and am now working on hand sewing the binding. I also worked on a secret Easter project over the weekend. I'll have to show that after Easter. I started a new quilt last night too, maybe I'll have some pictures tomorrow of that one. These are some of the quilting/binding pictures, and one showing all the fuzz that gets into my machine from quilting (this was the second time I cleaned it out during this quilt).

Some Hand Stitching

Since I don't have any quilts to bind right now, I started doing some hand stitching in the evenings. Here are a few of the Owls that I started with. I think I'm going to make several of these and then put them together in a quilt. We'll see.
