Moda Jelly Roll Full Circle fabric line available in April - or you can try to win it now!
Hand painted watercolor birdies - want it? you can win it this weekend!
When I moved to Portland 2 years ago, I set up my studio in the basement. We had a spare room upstairs, but we also had a son in college and I wanted him to have a room to come home to. Well....I couldn't take the basement a minute longer and my son said he thought it would be great to have the basement so ... for the past week I made a HUGE move! I'm ABOVE GROUND! I have windows! I couldn't have done it without my good friend (Ms. Muscles) Jen - Thanks Jen!
Now that I am all organized I found a couple of items I would love to share with you. One is a Moda Jelly Roll of my new fabric line Full Circle. This line won't be in stores until April, but it can be yours now! The other item is a watercolor painting I did of a little bird and her nest - spring is right around the corner! It measure about 5" x 7". If you are interested in either of these goodies simply leave the comment "George is the man". I will randomly draw two winners at 5pm on Sunday the 13th. I'm sorry, but I can only mail these within the US. (Sorry Robyn)
My new desk is an old round table I found. I had to cut 9" off of the legs. It has 4 legs instead of a pedestal. There was a small wooden apron around the table so I attached a pleated skirt and a little fringe I had found at an antique store a couple of years ago. I drilled a 2" hole through the table top for all of the cords. The fabulous quilt was a pattern I fell in love with designed by Minnick and Simpson. My mom pieced it for me. My mom also helped me with the table skirt and she made the pillows for my chair. The white cupboard was made by my Grandpa Bert and he used it for his tools. He was an amazing woodworker and a sweet little guy.
I found this chair and a half and it BARELY fit through the door! It was a TIGHT squeeze, but after it made it through the door Jen and I high-fived and I think I let out a loud WHOOPEE!
Zippy has already decided that's her chair. The hooked rug in front of the chair was hooked by the one and only Polly Minnick! The hand mirrors on the wall I have been collecting for a few years. They have been wrapped up and safely stored under my bed waiting for their home here. And last but not least - WINDOWS!!!!
This armoire was a gift from my mother-in-law years ago and now it houses my fabric. Check out all of the quilts on top! Most of them were pieced by my mom, but there are a couple up there that I managed to sew.
THANK YOU! The drawing in now closed.
