I currently have 3 linen closets in my hallway, yes three!! I also have another funny little room that is perched over the stairs. I shall show you this another day. Anyway, I was thinking to convert one of my linen closets to a chest of drawers. This one is outside the bathroom/WC and I thought […]
Just because I made a quilt for my son-in-law, I figured I should make one for my son. Here is the result. I used Moda Modern Background Ink and thought it would be a bit dark so I added in some pops of red. The binding is the same red and the back is grey.

…make quilts! After a terrible 2016, I decided that we had to have a better one this year. Everything was going smoothly. Having given up one of my jobs in November, I got a call a week or so later for another job, so I was back to 2 part time jobs. Still left time […]
