Wow, so what's a worktable?


If my whole house and garden (yard) are a work space, then this morning I have heavy equipment making a temporary road while they replace our access bridge.  I'm losing some time watching and especially when I hear. "WHOA, watch that hydro wire!".  :o



Another workspace is the work happening at my DD's.  The theme for the kids room is this jungle animal fabric panel.  I found the duvet cover at the thrift shop and I'll make curtains for the 2 windows. The walls will be the aqua of the sky,  the bedspread a brighter lime green and then some coordinating items my DD and I have made.


This small wall hanging was a Common Threads fabric challenge a couple of years ago.  It needs a hanging sleeve as does that large baby quilt above.


The wall hanging has some 3 D work on it.  I folded a flap, ruffled some leafy fabric, fused some leaves, embroidered some stitches and added some beads and buttons. It'll hang at the end of the bed.


On my own worktable, after I dothose sleeves and curtains, I'm hoping to get some time to free motion some roosters and sunflowers.

One of my favorite color combos is lime green and aqua....I think I like turquoise/aqua with lots of colors actually!

Love the colours of the kids room. Nice and bright. I don't much like making sleeves but they sometimes do have to get done.

your wall hanging has me thinking warm thoughts and sun shine,even though we have a good amount of snow the sun is shining and melting here right now. It is nice when our play takes us to warmer places. thanks for sharing

I find myself watching our work being done on the canal. It intrigues me and I love all the heavy equipment that men like to "work" with.
Your jungle theme is adorable and I love your Palm Tree wall hanging. It should be the star of the make-over. Happy MQing dear...

What Comes Next? said...

oh you are always so busy Elle! The kids room is going to be wonderful - I love that wall hanging you made. Lets just hope the "Whoas" come in time and they don't bring down the hydro lines!
