Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Refreshed Space.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!  Let's go!


For the past few weeks, I've been working on adjusting my main sewing area so that it's more functional.   After a bit over a year in the space, I have a better idea of what works and what doesn't, so I decided to make some changes.

I started by moving my old sewing table back against the sloped wall...

...with the shorter kids' crafting table next to it ...

Make-A-List Monday - Getting Ready For Vacay! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

I love Mondays - and especially the Monday of the week before vacation!  It will be a super busy week as I get everything ready, but the anticipation makes it all worth it.  

But first, let's see what happened with last week's list....

1.  Finish assembling the t-shirt quilt top.
2.  Quilt and bind the t-shirt quilt.
Done!  I'll be delivering the quilt tomorrow, just in time for the little girl's treatments which begin Friday morning.  I'll share more pictures on Friday with a bit of the story...

3.  Divvy up the thank you ...

Giverny Teleidoscope Quilt Progress + Custom Sewing Cabinet Modifications from Cheeky Cognoscenti

I'm still chugging along with my son's high school graduation quilt, in fits and snatches!  The real challenge is coming up with new pictures for each post about it, because it looks pretty much the same up on the design wall regardless of whether seams have been sewn together yet!  

Giverny Teleidoscope In Progress

You can't see the whole thing in the photo above, but the top six rows have corners attached and blocks sewn together into rows.  I have three more rows to go with attaching corners and joining blocks into rows.  There are no borders ...

Make-A-List Monday - Not Enough Hours In The Day! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Wow, last week went fast, didn't it?  And January, too - wasn't Christmas just a couple of weeks ago?  Well, I guess time flies when you're having fun, and there's no better place to have fun than in the sewing room!  Good thing, because I'm going to be spending a LOT of time in there.  It's commission time of year, and they are rolling in.  Hooray!  

So let's see how last week's list went....

1.  Write at least one String Therapy tutorial.
Done!  This was the first quilt to make an ...

Make-A-List Monday - Quarantine Days! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Monday has rolled around again and what a week it has been!  Both my husband and I tested positive for COVID last week (he's been mildly sick, I'm asymptomatic) and we've been in quarantine for a week now, continuing until the end of the week. Just goes to prove that even if you wear a mask, you can get it - but I'm guessing the mask may help reduce the exposure and make it a lighter case.  

Quarantine makes for lots of sewing time, though, so let's see how last week's list went ...

Make-A-List Monday - A Productive Week! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Wow, last week was very productive!  I guess I just need to know I have a very limited amount of time and lots to do to get motivated.  So without further ado, here's last week's list and what I did...

1.  Baste and quilt the special project quilt.
Done!  It's all ready to go, and I'll share more about this one after it is gifted.

2.  Make a back for the reindeer quilt.
Done!  And I managed to make it using fabrics I already had on hand - win/win!

3.  Make a back for ...

Make-A-List Monday - Back In The Real World! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Well, it's been a few weeks since I did a Make-A-List Monday post - but don't think I've been slacking off!  OK, well, I did slack off a little bit during vacation, but I had fun sewing on things I *wanted* to work on rather on things I *needed* to work on.  First up was this Plaidish quilt...

...which I finished while on vacation. That was a fun bit of sewing and I will definitely be making more of these!  Then I worked on the reindeer blocks that eventually ended up in this top...

Isn't ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Mooning over Moongate.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Summertime, and the living is easy..... and not just summer, but Friday!  And that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on, so let's get started!


It's been a little bit of a strange week, with more things going on than usual.  So I didn't think I had actually finished something this week, until Bill reminded me of this....

I finished the Moongate postage stamp quilt!  

It did help that I found a really cute backing on the clearance rack at Walmart - I wasn't looking, it just caught my eye ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? There's No Place Like Home from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Wow, Friday has arrived with a bang, hasn't it?  And now that it's here, it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on.  Let's get started!


After being in this house for more than five weeks. I am happy to say that I'm starting to get settled into my new sewing space!  Lilli came over on Thursday and helped me by putting up my collection of mini quilts and other various wall art....

I really wish I had taken a better picture of her helping me with this task - she looked beautiful ...

Order In the Studio: DIY Wall Mounted Racks for Longarm Quilting Rulers from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Good morning, and happy Thursday, everyone!  Thanks to my blog-reader-friend Diane in Texas, SAMWISE LEARNED HOW TO GO DOWN THE STAIRS YESTERDAY!!!  After reading my post about how I was carrying my 50-pound Rottweiler puppy down a flight of stairs every morning, Diane emailed me with step-by-step training instructions to get Samwise over his fear of the stairs, and they worked like a charm.  It took me all of 5 minutes, y'all, and this morning he came down the stairs all on his own.  I am eternally grateful, Diane, and so is my back!!

On to the Quilty Goodness ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Snow Day, Sew Day!! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Here it is, Friday again - and you know what that means!  It's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  I hope you're ready, so let's get started!


This morning when I woke up, I checked the weather like I always do.  Imagine my surprise when I saw that they were predicting 1-3 inches of snow for us!  Well, in Tennessee that doesn't mean much -  we get lots of predicted snow that never happens.  But at 7 a.m. I looked out the window.....

Snow!!  Big fat beautiful flakes - and the best kind ...

Make-A-List Monday - Guess Who's Back? from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Monday, Monday, can't trust that day... did you ever wonder why you couldn't trust Monday?  I actually like Monday and the fresh start it gives us!  And today's was especially fun, as the grandkids were out of school and I got to spend time with them.  I'm going to like living closer!

But enough about that - let's see how last week's list went.  (Please bear in mind that I had a wicked cold most of last week that is just now vacating the premises...)

1.  Work on organizing/setting up the quilt ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Things Are Looking Up! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It seems like forever since last Friday, but guess what?  It's rolled around again, and it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!


This week has been dedicated to getting things in order at our new home.  Granted, I've been doing that while battling a cold - why do we always seem to get colds at the most inopportune times? But I have made some headway in the process.

First off, I moved some furniture around up in my sewing studio...

...and now I have seating areas ...

Be Careful What You Wish For.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Isn't that a lovely studio?  Not mine, I'm afraid - but I'm always interested in seeing other folks' sewing spaces and how they organize them.

In the past, I've taken the week between Christmas and New Year's to deep clean and organize my own studio.  It was always a lot of work, but so worth it to start the new year off fresh, clean and organized.  But for the past three years, we have planned a vacation for immediately after Christmas, which means that my sewing studio is a non-deep-cleaned, messy place.  When we ...
