Recently I spent some time organizing at my daughter and son-in-law's home in New York. Yes, they asked me. One of my favorite projects was making a jewelry organizer for Laura's "closet room". The room is still a work in progress, but definitely closer than it was. I used one of the old printer drawers that they had used at their wedding to store the tea and seating information. ( See earlier blogs.) I cut out pieces of various scrapbook paper and placed in the back of the squares/ rectangles. Then I purchased small binder clips and clipped them to the wood to creating hanging hooks for jewelry. I hung it on the wall, to create a fun, artistic but practical "keeper of jewelry". I think I want to do this for myself!

Today I completed a lap quilt that I started last week. I love to go into quilt shops and look at fabrics, but I vowed I could not buy anything until I completed the last collection of fabrics that I had purchased. This quilt is fashioned after "The Modern View: Contemporary Quilt Pattern." It was fairly easy to put together. I was also able to practice "free motion" quilting with my new machine. This was a quilt I planned to keep myself, so it was easier to "practice" different free motion designs and not be so stressed about making it look perfect.
