Now that most of the unpacking is done (the sewing space still needs a lot of help), I am getting back into the swing of things quilting-wise.
This week I decided to work on some small projects. The first one was a Divided Basket by noodlehead. This is a great PDF pattern that I saw on different blog posts. I needed some extra storage for our bath in this house. The main full bath is small with a pedestal sink and no room for storage except for a tiny medicine cabinet and one shelf above the door (too high for me to reach without a step stool). There is not even room for a small cabinet or shelf or a under-the-pedestal-sink organizer (it's a rental house so we go with what's here). Also, pedestal sink are nice and all but completely impractical.
Here's another view.
I'll spare you a view of the basket in its place on the back of the commode lol!
Perfect for holding hair brushes, kleenex, face cleanser, etc.
I think I'll make a few more at some point for gifts.
One project-in-a-bag I found while unpacking was the Cash and Carry pattern by Atkinson Designs paired with zippers and fat quarters of Kate Spain's Fandango fabric line. I think I packaged this up way back when I was in the Groovy Girls club at Sweet Home quilt store (circa 2010). Took no time to get these finished. The small one has a pocket on the outside (I think I'll use it to store business cards and quilt shop punch cards) and the larger one will be perfect for sunglasses when I get a pair to replace the ones I lost.
Spring has finally found it's way to Santa Fe and Mr. SBQ and I are enjoying seeing all the budding trees and flowers. Since we moved here in fall/winter, spring and summer will be a whole new experience.
I took these photos on my walk to the farmer's market this morning.
And of course, no post is complete without a cat photo. Remy cuddled himself up in a quilt.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
