I love sewing room days!

I vacuumed and mopped floors this morning so I wouldn't feel guilty about spending the day in my sewing room.  While I had sheets drying on the clothes line, I went into my play room.


I made a new bathroom valance.  The color is not very true in the picture, but it is black and cream with a small green stripe. 

 
We took our glass shower door down a few weeks ago....one of the smartest things we ever did!  It has helped a lot with the mold buildup in the shower!  I made this shower curtain to match the valance.

Once we finish everything in the bath, I'll post better pic's of the whole room.  (we plan to paint the vanity and change out fixtures)


This is the coordinating fabric that I plan to staple onto a large canvas to hang over the bathtub.  My daughter has several of these 'instant art' pieces in her apartment and I love them.  We plan to paint the vanity the same color green that is in the fabric. 


You might remember these from a January post....I was supposed to complete a block a month this year on my Underground Railroad quilt.  As you can see, that didn't happen.  But I did start again last night and completed the wagon wheel block that you see on top. 

And I have the next block cut out and ready to sew.  I hope to do that later tonight when I get back into the sewing room.  I've been watching Bonnie Hunter live from Quiltville on Ustream and it seems to be just the motivation I've needed to get busy!  Has anyone else been watching her?

Penny You did such a great job on the valance, shower curtain and quilt blocks. Everything turned out great. The instant art work will be perfect!

You are a smart lady!

Busy, busy! I love what you have done in the bathroom and that coordinating fabric is going to look really cute on a large canvas.
