I'm back! And a cute little find . . .

It's good to be back to a routine of sorts.
I am completely unpacked in my new space,
and it feels so good to just sit and sew when I want to!

I have been working on my courthouse steps quilt.
It has been slow and steady, but now I am making good progress. 

I have decided that this quilt is going to Victoria's Basics Quilt Drive.
I am calling it "Moving Day."  I started this quilt when I decided to move and now am finishing
when I'm done with the move.
Moving can be unsettling when it's your decision;
I can't imagine how moving would be when you aren't in control of it.

Victoria's quilt drive is about donating quilts to families that are
going into transitional housing until their permanent housing is ready.
I tremendous cause egged on by a tremendous woman!

 Here is a little close up.
I need to find some outdoor space for pictures.
Now that I don't have a backyard . . .
I need to get comfortable photographing things in public spaces.
Could be fun.  Will probably meet some new friends!

Here is my new cozy sewing space in the corner of my living room.

It works just fine.  Everything can be hidden away for those wild
parties I plan to have.  Hahaha.

And here is the cute little find!
Three or four weeks ago I was cruising my favorite blogs,
I thought this would be perfect for my moving adventure.  
My new place has very tight security, and you have to swipe "the fob" through most doors
to get where you are going.  It worked beautifully for moving and carrying things in.
I still use it because I can find it in my Mary Poppins purse with great ease.

Check it out.

So what are you doing on this beautiful Sunday?
Have you found anything fun that makes your life easier??

  3. The quilt looks beautiful, as does your new place! The spot above your sewing machine would be perfect for a bulletin board or small design wall. :) Love the lanyard as well!
