sewing room fabric closet

I posted before about getting my fabric closet redone. Well I am still putting fabric away. I am almost done  one group of novelties left to sort thru and put away and some odds and ends of fabric.  I have almost sorted thru the other stuff other than fabric not sure why all of that stuff was in my fabric closet I guess didn't know what else to do with it.  I found several old quilt tops from DH great Aunt not sure if she made them or her mother  not very good  so just put them in a box and labeled them also lots of hexies cut out for grandmother's flower garden love the old fabrics, but proabaly won't make them.  Most of this stuff is not going back into the closet.  Hopefully by the end of next week the closet will be done and the house will be cleaned up from it being all over the house or at least two rooms, our bedroom and the living room.  Have several totes for my quilting buddies to look thru and help themselves next time we get together and sew and then the rest will be donated.

Happy Sewing,

Quilt show winner

The quilt show in the Mattoon Mall was a huge sucess. Not as many quilts this year but great quilts. One of the better turn outs for visitors, didn't think we would ever get done counting ballots.
I was greatly surprised when I won a first place ribbon for my jacket. here is a picture of it with its ribbon

Now I need to get my quilts entered into the Decatur Quilters Guild show at the Decatur Civic Center.  need to measure them and writing a small story about them
