Sunday Puttering

 We are having company next week.  My sister is going to be at Disney over the holiday and will come to stay with us on her way home.  To stay in the guest bedroom that isn't very guest ready quite yet.  Today was the start of turning my "sewing studio" back into a bedroom. 
 All that cleaning let to a break to walk around the block.  The sandhill cranes were out and about enjoying the fall weather. 
It isn't quite done yet, but it is starting to look more like a bedroom I think.   I am thinking that there is still time to do a bit more sewing first. 
While digging around in the closet, I couldn't resist the urge to pull out a quilt in need of finishing.  These stars were hanging nicely with fabric waiting to be pieced into a backing. 

There is a pink and blue chevron that I thought might look good with a bit of blue and pink or red.  I should have time to get that on to the next stage before my sister gets here. 

Then, I pulled out my hexies so that I can work on some hand stitching after the sewing room is completely pulled apart.  I think I'll go and visit Kathy to see what handwork others are up to today and Oh Scrap!  To get more scrappy quilting inspiration.

I love cleaning up my sewing area it always inspires me to do more sewing. Nice star quilt! Hand work is nice to have around when we can't get behind the machine

It's probably good to have a reason to "have to" clean up your sewing room! I need that now and then, too. Enjoy your sewing time today!

Love those rainbow of stars. It's nice to have handwork on hand when you can't actually use the machine. We'll have family around later this week, so it will be mainly hand stitching for me too.
