Cheater Post

Ok, I know I've been MIA lately, but I've moved! Well I'm slowly moving. The good news is that I will be able to have a room for all my crafty endeavors. The bad news is that it's covered with 30 year old wallpaper, has ugly carpet and all in all needs a good makeover after I finish painting/moving into the rest of the house. In the meantime, I was so excited because the other day in the mail I got my prize for winning the January/February FaDSA. It's the Amy Butler Feather Your Nest pattern.

Thanks Finny and Donk! Finny did a great job of picking a pattern that I wouldn't normally buy but ABSOLUTELY LOVE. And perfect timing too. Once I figure out what color I want to paint my room... I can make a matching bedset!

In other news, I need a kick in the pants to start making patterns out of this book. So I am joining the Bend the Rules Sewing Swap. Sign ups are until March 31st, so you can join too!

Oooh moving (to a big place) is so exciting! More space to put more junk!

Oh I am so excited for you! I can't wait to see your craft room.

I need to make something out of that book, too. I keep meaning to, but....then I had a baby. She is my excuse for not getting much done. :-)

have fun in your new space! I hate wallpaper...I think you should hire someone to remove it and use the time to sew stuff for your bedroom instead : )

Oh you're moving!? Great news! I can't wait to see pictures of the craft room once you get settled.

You'll have to email me your new mailing address as one of these days I'll get around to sending you a little something!

Congratulations on your move and gaining a creative space for your very own. That pattern you received is indeed perfect timing for you and it will be fun to see what you make.

Can't wait to see what you do with the pattern! Glad to hear the move went well.

Oh, I'm so glad you liked that pattern! I am sure your new bedset will be GLORIOUS based on the work you've done on those quilts.

Congrats on the move!

How's Lucy doing with the move? Hope she's handling is OK!

Wow, congrats on your move, that is sooooo cool! I would kill for a dedicated sewing area, but I will live and enjoy the coming photos of your space. That totally rocks!

Aww man, I missed the swap. But maybe I wouldn't have had time to participate anyway :o(. That Amy Butler pattern looks gorgeous, though and a crafts room of one's own is definitely a cause for celebration.
