The Konmari Method - Hanging Clothes, Socks & Hosiery from Scraps of My Life

Hello and welcome back to my Konmari Method journey!

I've been systematically working my way through the clothing sub-categories and this time around I tackled hanging clothes, socks and hosiery.  Now that I've gone through the tops and bottoms, which is the bulk of my wardrobe, these smaller categories are much easier and quicker to blast through.

Hanging clothes encompasses coats, jackets and dresses.  I also threw in to this category my house coats, night gowns and the two random sets of lingerie-style clothing I have.  I started with the outdoor coats, including fetching down the three coats ...

Yellow Challenge from High Road Quilter

Factotum of Arts is sponsoring a challenge to create a palette of yellow fabrics. Here's my submission.

When looking for a color to go with the yellow, I found that I liked these greens the best - a classic color combination is classic because it has been tried and tested. I like the long vertical stripes in many of these fabrics, and added a few other prints for balance.

Valentine’s Day Tech Bites from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

zombie themed technology accessories


Meadows full of tiny flowers, where the walking dead roam freely is the back drop for this “Zombie Love” fabric line by Emily Taylor (for Riley Blake). I am not sure if everyone will agree with me, but I totally see this as a Valentine’s Day fabric. Why you might ask? Well, for starters, it has one fabric with skeleton hands that form heart shapes (Lovely if I may add and quite romantic). There’s a tombstone engraved with “Love Never Dies” and the most obvious reason of all; the “HE” Zombie offering his beating heart to a “SHE ...

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot from Jenn's Quilters Depot Blog

It's Sunday

That means I give you excuses as to why I didn't do what I wanted this last week!  lol

I did get 2 blocks on my BOM done.  I quilted a quick quilt as a store sample.  

I did start my woolie bullie bag!  I will take a picture next week when i hope to have the back of it done.  I already have plans to make at least one more of these bags!

The rest of the week I think I did paperwork!

I need to have some craft time!  lol

Have a great week ...

The KonMari Method - Bags, Accessories & Shoes from Scraps of My Life

Hello, folks!

It's been quiet on the blogging front but I'm back with more progress on my KonMari project.  Today I'm sharing my decluttering of bags, scarves and shoes.  Let's get started.

First up, bags.  Now, I don't own very many handbags, which is probably a good thing, so I decided to also lump in other types of bags, such as rucksacks, shopping bags, overnight bags and toiletry bags, etc. and then suddenly it seemed like a lot.  Funny how that happens.  Here's the initial round-up.

Variety of bags - can't remember the count ...

First February finish............. from Exuberant Color

Stars and 16 patches, for lack of a better name, is finished.  I made the top from 2 piles of blocks that happened to be the same size.  The 16 patches were leftover from another quilt and the stars were mindless night sewing.  I finished the top in Nov. 2013.  It is approximately 56" x 70" so a nice size couch quilt.
The backing is an older Phil Jacobs fabric, Ivy.  I am so happy I decided on the green binding.

This is where I am on the Trip Around the World.  Yesterday I showed 9 vertical rows were sewn ...

Mama Bear from Jean Swenson

Bear's paw quilt

Mama Bear
February 2016

Mama Bear began with a color idea that I saw in an Indian Sari. Indian Saris are beautiful and their colors are so inspiring. I love the combination of purple, orange and pink. And while I try to do different quilt designs as much as possible, I wanted to do another Bear’s Paw quilt to go with Papa Bear.

Another source of inspiration for Mama Bear began this past Thanksgiving. At the cabin we stayed at in Big Bear for Thanksgiving, there is one bedroom that is decorated in the Three Bears theme – how fun ...

Happy Valentine's Day from High Road Quilter

Hello my dear readers and welcome back.  I hope you have a splendid Valentine's Day.

There isn't much to show you, but there has been a great deal of progress.

When last I left you, I had pieced another set of circles.  This week, I pieced that set of circles into the row, added the big circle.  I am now left with two parts, which makes me happy.  I haven't made many more circles so I will show you those later.

The 1857 quilt has been tempting me and I have decided to make it.  Since I ...

A-tisket, a-tasket, a fiber filled basket from Crow Calling Woman

I love shopping at the second hand stores. I almost ALWAYS find something I can use. Like this basket that is just beautiful! It is being used to hold all my alpaca rolags which I have finally started to spin. All carding and no spinning makes for a dull time.

I also found this lovely enamel teapot for $3 this week. It holds about three cups worth of tea. It fits perfectly atop my double boiler maker so I can keep it warm with a tealight under it. How charming!!

And it's that time of year when I start ...

A heart gone crazy, in term of embellishments. I have prepared a photo tutorial explaining how I have made this heart. The tutorial is for the heart itself and not for the embroidery. The tutorial being rather long, with many … Continue reading
