A Small Finish...sorta

Richard has been putting up the drywall!!! Love his heart, he started in my quilting room because he thought that would make me happy! LOL! See why I love him so much? This is my quilting room here that he is working on. He is 6'2" so as you can see my window in there is pretty large. I love window, it measures 4x8', it lets so much light in. Still have to do the ceiling but it will be all wood and beams. This room measures 20x24 but my frame will take up a lot of that room. Mom bought me this mirror and a bunch of other things for my birthday. My birthday isn't until Wednesday but she already gave them to me. This is for my main bathroom! She also got me the bronze trash can, toothbrush holder, soap dish, soap dispenser, and shower hooks. I didn't get a photo of that stuff because I boxed it up and took it out to the new house. I'm afraid this mirror will get broke if I take it out there now.
Seems like I haven't been getting a lot done as far as quilting. Just seems like nothing holds my interest right now long enough for me to finish it. So I decided to work on something small. I ordered a few kits from Connecting Threads a few weeks ago and this table runner was one of them. I still need to do the machine applique around those pieces. I think this is called "Around the Bend" I really like how it has turned out so far. I have never done binding on anything like this but I'm sure I can figure it out once I get to that part. LOL!
Hopefully, I can get it quilted soon. Right now I have this customer quilt on the frame.
I did another one a few weeks ago for the same lady that was almost exactly the same. I am quilting it with music notes. She did a great job on the piecing, it lays nice and flat.
It does feel good to get something done as far as quilting. I think one of my problems right now is lack of concentration. I have a lot on my mind right now with the house and all. I have also started packing up some of my quilting stuff, mostly things that I know that I will not need for a few months and now everything is a big mess.

Of course you already know I love all your projects and that runner is no exception.

I know are really looking forward to getting into that huge sewing "palace"...can't blame you.

The table runner is so unusual...wish I was that talented.

Your quilting studio is going to be fantastic!
Love the new table runner.♥

Holy cow! Look at the size of that room! And the window! All that natural light will be fantastic. I am drooling (and at my age, that is not a pretty sight!)

That is going to be a beautiful room Kristie!! Really really nice!

Honey Bear said...

Kristie, that nice big room will be great for you. I miss our old house with big rooms. My recently gifted Nolting 24 is set up in our garage but we will set it up in our 12 X 24' storage building after we clean it out.

Girl you are Blessed! Your DH is a Keeper:o) We know how wonderful your Mom is.
Love all your quilting! And your quilting room.

You'll love the size of that room. Mine is that size and I love it..and it's FULL!

I want to see the "around the bend" pattern. I have an old quilt on my wall that's the same pattern, but it's pieced and not appliqued.
