a clean room makes me happy

I spent a few hours today cleaning and organizing my room. I still have stuff to work on but it is so much better. I have a laundry basket of scraps hiding in my closet that I still need to deal with but not interested in that chore right now. My hubby is finally working on a thread rack for my wall that I'm super excited for. I heard they can get dusty but I keep my room pretty clean so hopefully I won;t have an issue. If it becomes a problem I can figure out out at that point. It is just scrap wood around the garage so not a big loss it it goes south. Now my room is so clean I'm scared to mess it up!

destashing 2015 is on

My big goal for 2015 is to use up a lot of my scraps, my room is busting at the seams and I'm running out of storage room so time to use up what I have before I keep adding to it. I found this block tutorial on and loved how they look and since they use up so many scraps I figured this is a great one to start for 2015. I think there is every color and shade used and they all look so great together. Each time I finish a block I think oh this is my favorite one and then the next block I say the same thing. I did mess up on a few but oh well that just adds to the "charm"  My take on quilts is there are no rules just have fun! I think this will be a great spring feeling quilt on my couch. My thought was to gift this but with how time consuming this one is it is staying here. I will still have a ton of material left to make more this year to gift.
