|Yes, those are more Floribunda blocks on design boards, leaning |
against the wall, and waiting to be assembled. They are currently
in the "9-patch" stage, so they finish up pretty quickly.

|My "soap kitchen." When we were finishing our home, DH graciously |
agreed to building this wall into my craft area.
|Special cabinet for curing soap. Slots in the|
door allow for air circulation as soap cures.
Then I succumbed to another plaid shirt for my shirt stash (thank you, Bonnie)--I won't take up space to show you, but it is a beautiful red plaid. And last of all, this came home with me.
I have had a Viking for 33 years. About four years ago DH surprised me with a new Pfaff for Mother's Day, since my Viking was so old it couldn't be fitted with a walking foot (I know--technically Pfaffs have "even feed," not a walking foot), but there are some things I still do on the old Viking. This Viking isn't quite as old as my original, but almost. It runs fine and has a few stitches my other machines don't have--since I don't go for the "bells and whistles" models. I had thought about giving it to someone, but now I'm feeling selfish. We'll see. I also have my mother's 59 year-old Bernina--and it still works, too. If I set them all up in my new sewing room (my attempt to make lemonade out of the recently emptied nest) it would be pretty crowded.
I don't know how much sewing I will accomplish this weekend, with soap production taking priority right now. So the winner of the design wall war will not be decided yet. I will keep you posted.
Until next time, from the little mountain valley where the sagebrush grows,
