Favorite 2018 Projects

Over margaritas, quilty friends and I were discussing favorite projects from this past year. I have a few, two of my favorite were an auction package for my school and the Go Teal it on the Mountain. Yesterday, I created a pillow casing from an old feed sack (zipper and all!) and placed a fat feather pillow inside.

Perfect for snuggling up for holiday break TV binge-watching. 🙂 Anyhoo, here are a few of my favorite projects from 2018:

I have two unfinished quilts that I hope to work on next week – didn’t quite get them done in time for 2018. Ah, well. So? I hope to hear about some of your own favorites that you’ve worked on in 2018.

Regardless, Happy 2019! May this year bring you and your’s health and happiness.

Have a good 2019! – – Joanne

Bedroom Revamp Plans

Another “snow day” has allowed me to continue working on my outdated, dark and not-so-large bedroom. While doing so, I don’t want to break the bank. It’s challenging but it is progressing.

Creative storage will include lidded baskets to hide all of that extraneous crap in our room, a DIY floordrobe wall hanger and possibly an over-the-door shelf. I know I can scrounge up a basket or two from around the house. I have scrap lumber and door knobs or hooks. I do like these and plan to sew similar pillowcases. One night stand completed; one left to build.
