Monday on my way to shop for groceries, I saw that the "Garage Sale Store" was open. I had some good luck there a month ago or so and decided to check it out. Right away, I spotted this book case for $55. It looked really nice and I liked the doors on the bottom. After texting a picture to DH and getting his approval, I bought it. After getting it home, DH saw that it was made by Ethan Allen! It is perfect for our living room.
I needed a break from "working" (aka unpacking and finding a home for each item in a box) so I decided to do some sewing and got most of this wall hanging put together. It's "Over the River and Through the Woods" by Crab-apple Hill. I just need to put on an inner border and then add the flying geese border and it can be basted!
I don't have my design wall put up yet, so it is on the floor. Here's a little closer view.
We are pondering how to put up a quilt rack or something that I will be able to hang my larger wall hangings on. It will have to be rather high up - we have a vaulted ceiling and it's an ideal place to hang a quilt. I have about 4 large wall hangings and they will hang on the opposite wall from the "Colonial Glory" quilt (or whatever quilt is on that particular quilt rack). They won't all be up at the same time, but I will switch them out seasonally. In order to put a quilt on that wall, two people will have to climb up on ladders. :-) I wonder how quilt shops get their quilts up so high.
Yesterday I showed my next door neighbor my sewing room (she's the one who wants to learn to quilt). She seemed to like it - or else she thinks I'm totally nuts!
