Too many projects, Not enough time

 I have been working really hard to get my Gardeners Journal quilt finished. I started this quilt about 2 years ago and finally I am motivated again to get going on it. Its coming along really good and I love doing the stitcheries.

 This one of the lady weeding the garden is my favourite, I think its so cute.
 I love this one to, the fabric I am using is called Wild rose by Black bird designs. Its so pretty.


 I have more than half of the quilt put together and now I'm working on the bottom row.
 I have also started a new quilt with a beautiful layer cake my mother in law sent me, its another Black bird design range called Cinnamon spice, its only new. Can you see a trend here. lol  I do like their fabrics.

 I have completed block 3 of Sweet heart houses by Shabby fabrics, its a nice project to work on.
I have had such a busy week painting the inside of my sewing room, the walls are Antique white and it looks so fresh and clean. I couldn't  start painting until after work and its dark by 5pm so I was a very busy Lizzie. The flooring is going in on Monday which is why I wanted to paint first and the electrician is coming back to put in the lights and power points. I'll share some photos when these jobs are done as right now all you see is a white, bare room. Soon the fun begins and I'll be moving my things in and setting up. I can't wait.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend  and I hope you find some sewing time.
