Finally Finished!

Well I finally managed to get my room finished. I have rearanged and put in a new cutting table and everything is about as good as it is going to get. the bookcase is still a bit of a mess but will be taken care of eventually. couldn't resist taking a picture of my african violet as it is doing so well right now.
Have not managed to do a lot of sewing. I did make the pincushion scrap holder by the machine and am working on a little miniature quilt that I may put somewhere around my machine.

This morning we went to church and found out that our pastor is being transferred. this is the one thing I definately do not like about the methodidst religion. I was born and raised a Luthern but don't seem to find a lot of them around here so I joined a methodist church not far from our home. We really enjoy our pastor and everyone had tears in their eyes after his announcement today. I may have to go back to looking for a Luthern church as I don't think I want to go through this again. Back home I grew up with only one minister and I have to say i like it that way. Guess we will have to see what happens.

We have Easter break comming up at school so I am really looking forward to the time off. maybe I can get something accomplished around here and still enjoy the rest. I have a master bath that has the most ungodly wallpaper in it. Have been planning to paint it ever since we bought the house but have not had a chance to do it. Would loveeeeee to get that done or at least started. Wish me luck. O.k. untill next time.

Its Fridayyyyyyy yesssssssssssss!!!! Can you tell its been a longgg week! I had some medical tests done on wednsday and work was a bear all week long so everyone is thrilled that friday is here!
Not only that but my hubby finished my cutting table and I loveeeee it! Originally it was supposed to have six baskets on the front and six on the back which it does but he surprised me by adding the exrta storage on the side. you can't see it because it is behind the pegboard with all my rulers which was another thing he added. I just love this cutting table and cannot believe how much fabric it holds. I still have not finished  cleaning up my room and the baskets in the back have not yet been filled but by the time they are " my room should look half way neat for a change. I was watching a vidio on utube from the missouri quilt channel on a cute little tote bag. I need a new one for work so this might as well be my first project using my new cutting table. take care untill next time.

Well here it is saturday again" I have been busy alll day long and right now I feel like I have been up for sixteen hours instead of only six. I started off planning to cook something great and wonderfull but was missing one or two ingredients for everything I decided to cook. soooooooo told hubby later on we would run into town and grab a bite. with all the work I have done today I deserve it. this is supposed to be my one and only day off " and all I have done so far is work. when the menue thing didn't come to gether I worked on the laundry and while I was doing that " I decided I should start working on my room while I am waiting for my new cutting table. what a messsssssssssss there is sooooooooo much stuff to go through. I finally managed to get my sewing table moved to the other side of the room which was nice because it gave me the full use of my design board which I didn't have before. Then I hauled several boxes out to the trailer that there were just no room for with the new set up. I took a break for lunch and then helped hubby to get a new light up by my sewing table. I realized no one had gotten the mail so that is what I did next. I walked down the driveway and up to the highway to get the mail. Rascal was so good" he started following me and I told him to stay and that is exactly what he did. when I got home with my hands full of mail and opened the door our other dog tripod flew out and I dropped everything and dove for his collar. here I am laying sprawled out on the front deck and hubby is snoozing in his recliner while all of this is going on. I yelled for him and he woke up and came out and I can only imagine what was going through his mind at that moment but I couldn't get up and hang onto tripod too. anyway he got the dog and I got up and although I am sore and cut my arm a bit I am fine. Its been a longggggggg day and I don't have a lot to show for it " even though I know I have accomplished quite a bit. I guess some days are like that. we are planning on going to lowes after work tomorrow to pick up what we need to put the cutting table to gether. I am hopeing that once we have it together a lot of the extra bags and boxes with material will vanish into the pull out baskets and help to clean my sewing space up just a little more. once it is all done I will post pictures . O.k. off to answer some emails" untill next time.

Welllllllll here it is sunday the third already. I swear I don't know where the time goes! It seems that by the time I get finished working all week and home for the weekend " all I manage to do is get the laundry done and go to church. we did stop by bed bath and beyond today! ya just gottaaaaa love that store! I ordered a kitchen aid coffee pot. I have another coffee pot now that no matter how often you clean the darn thing the coffee dribbles out of it at a slow pace. the new one will take up a much smaller space as it is a four cup coffee pot anddddddd it matches my kitchen aid mixer!
I am also working on going through my messy sewing room so that I can clean off my current cutting table which is a work table that I bought from lowes thinking it would work well . it has been very nice  buttttttt in looking at different blogs I was soooooooo inspired by a cutting table that I saw on one of them. she used shelveing units from target. she used six of them and then put a cutting table on the top of that. I saved the picture as I wanted to make one like it for my sewing room. I hope she dosen't mind my showing it too you as I cannot remember which blog I saw it on. if anyone knows please tell me as I would love to give her credit for a greatttttt idea! My room is much too small for this one so I bought two of the shelfs which will contain twelve boxes to store fabric in. I will have hubby put them back to back I think: and place a cutting space on top of that. would love to have one exactly like hers if I onlyyyyyy had the room but alas this one will still be a very welcome addition. Now I just need to find some place to put all the stuff I had stored on top of the other old one. It seems like no matter how many times I reorganise there is just never enough space " Do you all feel that way or is it just me"?
Hopefully I will have it up and running in the next week or two so will include pics when it is finished. I think I will have to hang hooks or peg board to the sides so that I can hang rulers ect.
Onto the next subject. I loveeeeeeee recipes! and last week I found a new one for a banana cake . I am always baking something to take to work. there are one or two of us that bake things and the others will buy something as most of them don't bake . I had high hopes for this banana cake because it was a very time consuming recipe. it did turn out good but too me it tasted more like banana bread with cream cheese frosting on the top. next time I will avoid all the time consuming measures and simply use my banana bread recipe and add frosting. O.k. thats about all I can think of for now so untill next time ".
