More Craft Room Makeover Ideas












I have a big, folding table now. If I get things up off the table and onto the walls I'll be able to get a smaller table.

I have a small closet with a sliding door. It's almost impossible to get things out of one half of the closet.

Ideas for My Craft Room Makeover














The spice rack is perfect for seed beads. Hanging strings of beads would be great for the gemstone beads I love. I could enjoy them rather than having them in a box.

Now I just have to figure out how to do one for jewelry making, quilting, origami, and knitting. (Just kidding. I just need a really big pegboard...or four. Too bad my room is small.)

My Dear Jane Quilt Blocks

Purpose of making these Dear Jane blocks: To learn new techniques and improve the few skills that I have.

Time limitations: None. This will be my only project until it's done or I lose interest.

- All the blocks will be hand pieced until I decide to dig out my sewing machine.

- The light colored fabric is 100% Cotton muslin in natural.

- I'm using stash Batik and Bali fabrics in multiple colors.

- My color goal is not to have the same color next to itself throughout the quilt.

- My completed blocks are all 4.5 inches.

Update:

8/16/16; I completed 78 blocks that can be seen in the archive links. I may do more when I start machine sewing.
