Compartment Living

My nephews have dubbed my lovely little one bedroom co-op as a compartment. I laugh when I hear it because it makes people conjure up images of me sleeping in a glove compartment. For the most part I heart my compartment. I have put a lot of time and effort into making it a home. Most quilters/sewers will sympathize with my difficulty in compartment living. SPACE. One bedroom...no sewing room. Months ago I converted my walk in closet into a little workspace. The problem with space? my stash is growing.  I keep fabric....





and now after going through all of those horrible books you are forced to buy when you take masters degree courses and though the instructor insists you'll use it in your career, you NEVER do! But when you donate them TA DA....you end up with plenty more space for your stash!

Stuck in a Three Way

Lately I have noticed a pattern. A pattern in my quilting. It seems I am always stuck in a three way. Inadvertently, I am always working on three projects at once. This is so unlike me. I'm more of one quilt kind a gal. Lately, I'm in a three way and I have to pat myself on the back because I have noticed that it is a highly fair and diplomatic three way. 

These are the participants. Let me introduce them and explain how fair I am.

 Participant #1: A quilt being bound to donate. ( I have been trying my hardest to constantly work on quilts for Project Linus)
Participant #2: A quilt, drum roll please, FOR ME! This beautiful quilt I'm sad to say is not my design. You can find out all about it here at Waterwheel House Quilt Shop. It is the design of Shelley Sas.

Participant #3: My design, Five Little Pumpkins, just in time for Halloween. It is being bound in order to sell it here in Stitch Witch Fine Quilting (my shop).
