Reclamation of the sewing room

Yes I have actually managed to wander into the sewing room to make a dent on getting it cleaned back up so I can work in there.  I really want to start laying out my Barn Dance blocks on the design wall.

These are the last two finally all sewn together and these are my favorite two — the batiks I used for the largest pieces are two I purchased not long ago when I was making the fused snowflakes and I love those two fabrics.  The black with all the multicolors in it and the bright coral are just so pretty.

But, before I let myself play on the design wall I decided I really have to clear off the table and put some other stuff away.  I did collect all the batik fabrics I had scatted about that I was pawing through when making the Barn Dance blocks — look at those neat and tidy piles (and one basket of scraps)

Now I just need to get them all back on the shelves.  Which I am headed back to do.  I took a break to make some German Potatoe Salad to go with the smoked pork chops I’ll be having for dinner – a perfect pairing.   Hopefully I’ll have the table cleared off and the majority of stuff put away before dinner – that’s my plan anyway.
