my sewing room...straightened out at last!

I spent some time in my room trying to get it organized.  I sorted all of my scraps into some nice bins.  I straightened out the fabric closet.  I moved things around a bit and finally got all the thread pieces off of the floor.  I took these photos so I can remember what it should look like.  I am in the process of completing a project so it does not look like this right now.  I wish I could figure out how to keep it in order.  The room is about 11 X 12 feet.  Not too small but it I wish it were a little larger.

I made a little zippered bag!

I do not like to put in zippers.  I found a great tutorial online
to make a little zippered bag so I tried it.  The first one was interesting, I put in the zipper backwards...oooo I was upset.  The next two came out pretty good.
Here is a photo of one that I made. Cute huh?

I plan to try it again...maybe I will get over my zipperfobia....I never have been
successful at putting them in.

Honey said she had so much fun on her adventures.

Dinosaur quilt top------complete!

The colorful dinosaur quilt I started last week is finished.  It is made for a twin bed. For the bottom corners I had to "make" fabric because I had run out of the green that I used in
the borders on each side. I think it looks ok.  Let me know what you think.
