Hi there!  I can hardly believe how much of the week has already gotten by me!  I hope you have enjoyed visiting the Giveaway Day posts – I found a few to enter myself too!  Good luck – I hope you win somewhere!

I’ve been sewing up a storm, which I’ll have to share with you later, but I thought I would show you my temporary storage solution I set up this week.

Temporary storage

I’ve outgrown my current system, and happened to have this wire unit in pieces.  I just needed a spot to set it up, so I emptied the boxes (fabric orders), that I had set against the wall, and moved in some fabric!  It’s mostly a bunch of piles, but I know exactly what is where, and thankfully my family knows to not touch unless invited.

Meet Melody!

I’ve also been getting to know Melody this week, a fabulous gift from my friends at Baby Lock!  I’ll share more about the machine later too – so far I’ve loved all the features, and the kids and I had fun checking out all of the stitch options!


I’m making plans to do some baking with my girls this weekend – do you have a must make Christmas cookie?  I’d love to add to our collection.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a Featured Quilter, and a Giveaway Day winner –
