New Sewing Project


I know it's been a while...and I'm really almost ready to post all the pictures of my new room.  I just have a few final touches to add before I do.  It's been so busy lately and it's hard to find time just for me.  But trust me, when I do, I make the best of it!

I did realize I needed to get a little sewing therapy going on.  That truly is my stress reliever.  I'm almost finished with my quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap I'm doing over at Once Upon a Quilt.  I really like it and hope my partner, Wendy. does too!

I have a pattern call Opposites Attract from Julie at Jaybird Quilts that I'm currently working on.  If you are interested in purchasing this pattern, or any of Julie's other patterns, you can find them here at Pink Chalk Fabrics.  I have a couple of Julie's patterns.  Opposites Attract is the first one I'm making and the instructions are easy to follow and the pattern make-up itself is very nice quality.  Black will be my other color with this, but here are the rest of the fabrics, most of which were purchased from my favorite person, Kym, at Fabric Fascination.  She really is the bomb.  And if you need something she doesn't have, just ask...a lot of times she will see what she can do.  I honestly cannot say enough great things about her.  There just aren't enough words in the dictionary!

I finished cutting the circles last night.

More to come on this as it progresses!

I thought I would share a couple of fun pictures from my room.  

I work with some pretty awesome people.
Chris (one of my favs!)
 is our Graphic Artist and he has a sign
company of his own.
I had him make a sign
special for my 'happy' place.
A girl  has to mark her territory, you know.
If you have any ideas for a sign you would like
feel free to contact Chris at
He'll be more than happy to assist you
in getting what you like!

Here's the sign he made for my new room:

L.O.V.E. it!!

Have you seen those little doors for children
that you can put up when they loose a tooth?
They call them a Tooth Fairy Portal?

Well...that gave me a fun idea and
I had so much fun making this little gem.
The little cupboard was something
my husband made years ago.
It was tucked away back in a closet.
I found it when I was moving into my new room.

So I painted it and Mod Podged some fabric on it.
And made the cute little sign.
 I'm sure all of you other
fabric-holics will want to jump on the band wagon!

My husband always asks where on earth
I get all my fabric from.
I just tell him it's magic.
And now...I'm really not fibbing.  :o)
 Here's where it comes from:

And what is even more lovely,
when I have a sewing guest,
she leaves them a sweet little gift!
Yep...just ask my sister.
I y'all want to come
sew with me, don't you? 
You want to see what she'll leave you,
Well come on over!

Cindy, thank you so much for your kind words!

I am intrigued with your new project, love oval or circular patterns. Can't wait to see what it turns out to be.

Your room is shaping up very nicely. The "Cindy's Heaven on Earth" sign is great.
