THIS AND THAT

I drove past our "new home" yesterday and took a picture of the sign of the housing development.  I took it with my cell phone while sitting in the truck across the street from the sign, so the picture isn't very clear.   Kind of a nice name for the area.




My work area in our 5th wheel camper isn't too big and I took a picture of my messy sewing table.  Stuff seems to get piled on the end of the table.  You can see my water bottle, some fabric, a pencil holder with some quilting tools in it, a hair band, bobbin and a vintage Tupperware sugar bowl.  I have 2 of the sugar bowls; one for our house and one for the camper.  But there isn't any sugar in this one.  As I was quilting my basket quilt and taking the pins out, I couldn't find a jar to put the pins in.  I spotted the empty sugar bowl and decided to use it instead.  The pins just fit through the opening.  And if it falls on the floor, they won't all spill out!


Here's a close-up of the sugar bowl.  Maybe you can see a few pins in it.


I'm getting the binding sewn on my basket quilt!  Then I need to quilt the border, put on a label and I'm done!!!!!


BTW, thanks for all the suggestions for a name for my basket quilt!  I think I'll use one of the names suggested, but haven't decided which one yet.

I do hope the area will be just that for you --- Pleasant! Your machine table looks about like mine today. Seems like I pile everything to the right of the machine. ---"Love"

What a wonderful name of your housing community. I always love it when you can get lucky enough to have a nice Street name or Town. I can't imagine how you get all that you get done in your 5th wheel. But you do amazing work. I remember those vintage tupperware containers; I may even still have one. So anxious for you to be able to move into your new place. Keep us posted. :)

do you always put the binding on before quilting the border? can't wait to see the scalloped border. I've never tried one.
exciting about the house!

That s a nice name for the housing development. I hope you will be happy in your new home! I can't believe how much you are getting done while living in your camper!! That was a great idea about the sugar bowl for your pins. I have still been thinking of names for your quilt, though I am sure you are the best person to name it after you have put so much time and love into it. Bountiful Baskets?
