Sunday Feels like Saturday

I am moving everything downstairs and figuring out where it goes in the new sewing room.  Lizzie is keeping me company of course.   I thought about making bigger scrap bins to fit into the cube shelf, but now that I put the scrap bins in, I think it might be nice to store yardage next to bins.  The green is a little bit out of hand, as is the pink.   At some point I still need to make bins for black and brown and lights.  
Everything is still a bit of a mess.   I have an Ikea storage rack that used to live in Sydney's closet.   It is empty now, but It does a nice job of holding the Go! Cutter.   All of the unfinished flimsies are hanging on the storage rack.  I will load one up as soon as I get things cleared up a bit.  Sydney ditched the closet door at some point.  I will have to add that to the project list.  There is a nice outlet right in the middle of the wall, but it doesn't seem to work.  The list continues!
I peeked out onto the balcony just long enough to see the sun come up, but is a chilly again today.   There were some surfers out enjoying the waves.  I think they must be a little bit crazy!
Speaking of crazy, I have made 18 of the tiny blocks.  3 inches is just such an adorable size!  I cut a nice stack of plus blocks form 2 inch strips to use as leaders and enders. The blue crumb blocks are 4.5 inches.  They will be the centers for stars.  Still need to cut some 2.5 inch HST units, that can be my project for the afternoon.   First though, I think I will head over to Oh Scrap! And see what other scrappy fun people are up to today.  I have three new rainbow projects for 23.  You just never know when inspiration will strike for just one more to add to the list.

Sewing room is coming along nicely! Blue blocks look great too!

I am not surprised that you are enjoying the 3" blocks. I followed along with you & others and made Tiny Tuesday blocks. It is one of my all-time favorite quilts. Hope you're enjoying the 3-day weekend. Work will be back on the to-do list soon enough.

Pretty blue blocks. You will get a 'new' nice sewing room.

Your studio space is looking pretty good to me. I can't seem to get mine organized. My green bins are overflowing too - both yardage and scraps.

Looks like you've made a good start on organizing the new sewing space. Lots of pretty scrappy blues up on the design wall. I'm sorry 3" and cute for pieced blocks just don't fit for me. It's more like 3" and frustrating. Happy stitching this week.
