Making a Sewing Room Home, Part 2

The valance for the windows in my new sewing room is up.  For this valance I used the leftover pieces from the two Sisterhood of Quilters panels that I cut up a few years back for the quilt.  To this I added other extra fabrics from that quilt.  I had saved the fabric for just such a purpose. 

Also I re-oriented my sewing machine table now that the wall quilt is hung.  I like the new set-up.  My sewing machine now faces the open door to the dining room for easier visiting with family when they pass through.  My quilty kitties seem to like the new set-up, too.  I have a quilt down at sill level for each to claim a window seat.  So far they are still vying for the same window.

Butterfly  reacts to Katniss claiming her spot by jumping up out of reach and looking down on her. Butterfly has always been a climber.  No place in the house is too high for her to jump.  Katniss still has a bit of a problem with the use of her back legs which we think may have been from an old injury from her life as a stray.  Katniss cannot jump up to Butterfly's lofty perches. As you can see from this photo, this has created a bit of hero worship in Katniss.   I think Katniss is definitely wearing down Butterfly's resistance and making inroads to her feline heart.

I have gotten some sewing done in my new room.  Besides the valance, I made some window scarves that Jon requested for his wide sills in his loft. I also got a table topper ready for quilting.  I also made some block for a Quilt and Needle Quilt of Valor for a veteran ...

and some baby blocks for a Q and N Quilty Auntie Project ...

These are destined for a Dissapearing 9-Patch baby quilt which the piecer will be cutting and assembling.

Next up: some swap block for next month.

Have a happy quilty day!


  1. Your cats are so cute :) and your sewing room looks so cozy and homey. I bet its a lovely place to create.

  2. Thanks, Anna, for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment. Having a dedicated room for my sewing is wonderful! :)

  3. Your quilty kitties are lovely. I'm positive they really appreciate the new layout so they have reign over the windows and other loafty perches :o)
    Have a great day.
    Always Queenie
