Messy Wednesday

On Monday I decided I needed to clear a drawer in my quilting room to store blocks and supplies for my QALs. The blocks I am making for the RSC13 are 12.5" unfinished and don't fit into my Artbin containers but a drawer would be perfect. One of the drawers contained lots of 5" charms and 2.5" strips that needed to be sorted and put away so I moved it out to the living room and dug in.

After 2 days of catching up on Season 1 episodes of Downton Abbey & Revenge (what do you think of that combo?), sorting charms and mindlessly dumping & grabbing stuff in my quilting room in between I have this mess to take charge of this morning. Ugh! Does anyone else make things worse in the process of trying to make things better?
On the positive side,  I have an empty drawer and 5 colors already picked out for RSC13. I needed to make some room in my charm bins and hadn't "played" with them for a long time so I thought I might as well take some extra time indulge in a few more episodes. So many pretty little squares!

Reds, yellows and blues.
Oranges and greens.
Can't wait!

What's Hot:

1. Project Linus quilts - I've got this Happy Block quilt ready for binding and 2 backings ready to sandwich.
2. Purple RSC13 Blocks

3. Christmas Stocking #2 - the gold fabric is for binding.  A very masculine feel to this one!

4. Triple Zip Pouch

I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday@Freshly Pieced.  Back to the mess...


  1. Love that Linus quilt. The broad waves look great with it.

  2. Glad to see you haven't forgotten the stockings! LOL Your room looks very real. You should see mine. Love the great colorful squares.

  3. I love your Project Linus quilt. As a Linus quilter I am always thrilled to see what others are making for this great charity. Thanks for sharing.

  4. My husband is cleaning out his study and said much the same thing last weekend, it gets a whole lot worse before it gets better! Love that happy quilt you're giving to Project Linus.

  5. My room looks much the same right now! I'm in the middle of way too many things!

  6. I am messy but not that messy. LOLLL There again that's probably because I have less space than you.
    Beautiful fabrics and quilt.

  7. You make a pretty good mess.... but I might have you beat! Check out the mess I made while rearranging my sewing rooms (posted on my blog). I only have one room almost finished. Great progress finishing things.

  8. I love the quilting on your Linus quilt...looks so easy and straight forward :o)
