What 'cha Doin' Wednesday

hi everyone! what'cha doin???
(before i get started i want to let you know that i started this post at almost 3pm today
and it is now almost 10pm as i am finishing it up)

today, i've been working on something that i'll show you on moday.
can't tell, it's a secret!!!
i'm also cooking pot pies and baking banana bread today.
a gal from church just brought home a baby girl and tonights my night to bring dinner.

do you pass on those opportunities to bring dinner to someone or have others for dinner because your not a "cook" or because you just don't have a recipe your comfortable making?

i have a couple great ones that i'll share that will make you jump at the chance.


stay tuned...


well...i'm STILL working on organizing my sewing room. here's what i've got so far. i will say that as far as my fabric goes, i'm pretty darn organized, it's all the other stuff that i have a problem with.

here's the before picture...

and here's the after...look mom, it's clean!!!

(now if i can just keep it this way!!! and NO i didn't just throw it behind me...
that was the home tour!!!)
remember the picture i showed you of neta's sewing basket...


here's my attempt. i need to make the cute cover for the spray bottle, then i think it will look cute. for now i'm just happy to everything in one place and functional.


i also covered this dingy, well used ironing/cutting mat. how cute is the darn iron!!! it's real. lois ann gave it to the little princess (thus, no cord)


and while i was in the organizing mode. neta had yet another great idea for the 12 x12 plastic bins from michaels. they are on sale right now for 40% off. i bought a couple to organize my current class project and my blocks of the month.


and i also found this basket in one of my closets and i put it to good use. my long arm supplies are now in one easy to find place.

well that's all folks...

i've got to go get some laundry done!!!

SERIOUSLY, i hear it beeping at me...

I could use some recipes for taking people meals. I never know what to make!

Also, I was just wondering what to put my blocks in for BOM's I'm doing. I hadn't thought of scrapbook boxes. Thanks!

I think I might work on making a cute basket, too. It would be nice to have everything in one place.

Very pretty! And so neat and organized! I love the skirt around your sewing table. I'm curious...what is the triangle under your sewing machine? It's all just too cute!

I liked it better before you organized it...Now that was YOU!

XOXOXOXXX

Great job on the sewing room. I also love the little heart detail on the pie. I am so with you on never passing up an opportunity to bless someone in need. You never know when it might be you crying out for help. Have a blessed day!

Hi Julie,
so cute and I am going to cover my ironing pad now. How did you attach the fabric to the plastic underneath? What kind of fabric did you use...you are inspiring me. Thank-you, Beth

This looks great! You've really transformed and organized your creative space to make it work for you. I love the baskets of crafty goodies. Great work, Julie!
