A few blocks and my threads and 2013 list

Here’s the bible BOW.

The queen on sheba!

I did EPP on this block and appliqued it down, I first printed out the templates and fussy cut the fabrics, I think the outer ring is the crown and then the middle gold circle is the gold she brought to King Solomon, can you imagine 4.5tons of gold!!?? wow

I got some magazine boxes in the mail from amazon yesterday and got all my magazines on the shelves and books above it.


Now this is for Michele! she just got a Voyager17 and stretch frame, so I wanted to show my STUFF and how I organized it

Here’s the K-kraft bobbin winder. I love it!

I have my canned air next to it and some cheapo scissors



Next is my bin with thread cones


I have the threads just tossed in there, light ones on top


and dark colors on the bottom, slowly I’ve been buying 2 of each color, so I can have 1 on the Voyager and 1 on the bobbin winder, this way I don’t need to wind 10 bobbins at a time.


On the top I have a box with the bobbins, sorted by color

Then a bobbin ring holder for empty bobbins

my thread basket, red snapper small snaps, a frixion pen to mark the center of the quilt tops and backings and then a seam ripper


Here’s also another Ahhhh! #16 I think
