My First Finished Quilt Project in New Mexico

Today, I finished my first "quilt project" while living in New Mexico. The challenge was given to our quilt group in Idaho to make a Spiderweb block. I loved this block because first of all you use your SCRAPS!! Thank you Desi and Donna for the fun challenge!!

Home Sweet Home (Part 1)

It is about time that I introduced you to our new home. We will be living in our 5th wheel for the next few years. So far, it is pretty comfy. I will take you all on a tour.

Above is our cozy little kitchen. I love the fact that the sink has covers (cutting boards) on them. That way, I can use the sink as I do a dishwasher. You guessed it.... The dirty dishes are under the covers until I turn the dishwasher (me) on! :o)

This is our dining area.... conveniently located off the kitchen area. The table cloth I finished just today. I will give a close up of it in the next post.

Here is our couch/guest bedroom. The couch folds down to a bed for visitors. The rug I made a few years ago and brought it from our old home. I like how it matches. I need to make some throw pillows for the couch to dress it up a bit.

Here is our entertainment center. You notice it isn't on? Obviously, I don't watch much TV. But it is there when American Idol or Dancing with the Stars is on. :o) To the right is the door to our bedroom. You will see it soon...

We were able to bring our recliners from home. Just right for a nice relaxing night after a hard day's work. I usually use the Apron Topper for my table, but I love it so much I had to keep it out for a while longer.

As promised.... Here is a photo of our bedroom. Sorry about the picture in the mirror. I didn't know how to take a picture of our closet without taking me along with it! LOL!! I love my bedspread. It reminds me of all the sweet quilting sisters who I swapped blocks with in Idaho. I miss you guys!!!

Last but not least is our toilet. As you can see.... a very large and spacious bathroom. I am very proud of the fact that it is REAL porcelain NOT plastic!!

Here is our bathroom sink. The door to the toilet is to the right. PRIVACY, huh??

This is the flat screen TV in our bedroom. I hate to say that I haven't watched a whole movie, yet! Bed is for sleeping, not watching TV. LOL!

Oh.... and this is the outside of our home. Can you believe all that stuff in in THERE??

You probably didn't see my sewing machine in our home, right? Well, above is the beginning of my sewing room. This is the entrance.

Here is the inside. I promise, it is going to be AWESOME!! I can't wait!! My sweet MIL is letting me use her guest bedroom for my sewing room right now. BLESS HER!!!

Here is my morning friend that literally kicks my "you know what"!! I am being very faithful, though. I have to report to my daughter every morning or I get in T R O U B L E!! (Thanks, Amber!)

Well, there you have it.... the grand tour of the Wood home. Hope you enjoyed it!!
