my name is judy

My name is Judy and I am a start-aholic.

I think it is inherited! As I have moved into my sewing room ... oh wait, they are called quilt studios now ... or whatever they are call these days. I discovered 2 tubs and a card-board box of unfinished quilt tops of Mother's. I, not to be out done, have 2 quilts I need to put back in the quilt frame and finish. I have 3 quilt tops that are done and ready to quilt, 2 quilt top, no, make that 3 quilt tops I am working on, and 1, 2, 3, 4 knitting projects and 1 counted cross stitch project. If I finished what is started I could move a lot of stuff out of here.

I have my six tub stack for my cutting table. I had a moment of inspiration and decided not to use the dinning table extensions. I decided they were too heavy and would be too big for my tubs. So I found a piece of sheet rock 26" by 48". I trimmed off one corner so it would fit in the space, used duct tape (the handy-man's friend) to wrap the edges. Voila! I have a cutting table that my 36"x 24" cutting mat fits on.

Changed the curtains out to some lace ones, I like the light but not the heat that is being let in, so while I was moving fabric around I found a piece of eyelet. I am going to hem the sides and put a rod pocket on it. I think it will brighten the room and still hold some of the heat out.

Well the chickens, ducks, and dogs need fed and I am it today. I guess I need to get that done so they will still love me. Judy


  1. love this post. You are so honest with yourself. I need to do a post like this! Did it motivate you to finish things?

  2. Embarrassingly, no. I started to knit scarf with the samples of yarn I got at a 'yarn tasting' event at the local yarn shop (The Twist) in Wichita, Ks, but it is almost done. Then I will finish a quilt I have started. I reworked the quilting idea I had, so it should look the way I envisioned. Judy
