New Paint and Carpet!

I thought it would take a week but it ended up taking a month to take everything out of my 13x13 foot room, paint it, install new carpet and put things back in place-refolding all the fabric took awhile😧  I love my room and can tend to lock myself away in there.  The happiest place on earth.  My sweet husband was amazing and even though it is hard for him to do, he did the carpet installation himself and installed all new baseboards and the new blinds.  He also helped haul the multiple boxes of material and "stuff" out and then back in when we were done.  I love that man!

Fat quarters, strips,  Kaffe Fassett, B&W and kits
Right side of closet-Bonnie Hunter's scrap user system, bead s and tools.  The closet used to house all my crafting stuff and scrapbooking stamps, paper etc etc.  I saved some stamps for fabric and 1 shelf of scrapbooking stuff but everything else went.  Love that I can find everything.

Cutting station, work table, yardage, pattern books and my new favorite green Singer made in the 50's

My husband used to have all his stuff above the computer and stuffed under the table but now it is all Mine!  I used my Babylock for embroidery and quilting and keep it stored away in our old TV armoire.

A shoe holder repurposed for thread etc.  Everything is easy to find

There is a lot in the room but it is completely organized and I can find everything!  Love it!  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Class Full

I was hoping for 5 or 6 ladies to join the Calendar Club Class but day before yesterday number 16 and 17 joined which added 2 additional kits.  Yikes.  So I only have a few more green border pieces to cut and I am done kitting.  I was hoping to have my sample quilted in time for class but making the kits has taken quite a bit of time.  I am pretty excited about the turnout and a couple of ladies have dropped by the house for extra help.  Our Lizzy loves the extra company.

12 kits almost ready

May Flowers

Have been loving the rain here in Ramona.  The hills are bright green and everything smells so clean except for our dog who still has a faint odor of the skunk she chased out of the yard.  Her first experience getting slightly sprayed.

Calendar Club

A lot has changed in the last year.  Cant believe it has been a year since posting last.

My friend that was almost killed in the accident last January is almost restored to good health.  Praise God!

Our house in Medford had a major hemmorage and the sewer line from house to street gave up the ghost after nearly 100 years.  Of course the insurance didn't cover it because it was outside the house, nor did it cover the hotel we had to house the renters for two weeks.

We are putting the Medford house on the market as soon as possible.

We took a long camping trip from Ramona to Washington and back last September-loved it!  Needed it!

Had our neighbor, Neal as a boarder for 9 mos. until he could move to Oregon to rejoin his family after his retirement.

Friend,  ken, moved in as a renter for 5 mos until he could feel comfortable in his new job.  He moved out into his own place in January.  We will remain empty nesters.

Started a monthly class called "The Calendar Club"  with several brand new quilters.  We have a new quilting space in Ramona called Sew Easy Studio.  Teachers rent the space for the day and hold classes.  We love it!

One thing hasn't changed:  God is good and His mercies endure forever!!
March Flimsey-working on hand sewing Freezer paper applique

April Flimsey is now quilted and crystal butterflies were sewed to points. This version is fused.

I realized my last post talked about Asilomar and the class with Susan Carlson.  Both were amazing.  Best time ever!  And this is the almost finished product of that class:
