What's your end of day or morning clutter?

In response to my friend Peggi's great question - what's on you're cutting table? (her blog is at http://pwl-cyberhome.blogspot.com/ - I've slightly revised it to show what is also surrounding my cutting table! I won't show the ironing board, or my sewing table (that would be just too much information :) - but here's what my cutting table and work area looked like this morning -



Here, I have a new "fit to frame" applique pattern by Lori smith. This one has a little dog under a tree, a great cute chicken, and few other motifs that just made me *have * to get it. The fabric baggie is a possibility for this little project. Also, is one of the new spools of thread that I just received from Tristan B.C. They sell a terrific selection of European cotton threads, including Aurifil. And, the kitchen scissors somehow got on to my cutting table.

Hmmm....here I have some green fabrics that are now leaves on a vine, for Garden at Dusk, my version of Cindy Lammon's quilt in her book Gathered from the Garden. The cover of the new Lori Smith pattern is tossed on top of that book. The plastic storage box is for my sewing feet - that bo does not belong there.... Then, because I have age-onset a.d.d., I had to pull out a file of patterns pulled from Australian Patchwork & Quilting, looking for something that had just jumped into my head for yet another idea on a blue and white quilt.

I'm certainly glad I don't have a blog. I would never be able to post my cutting table pictures. I turned around just now and looked at it. It's downright scary. It will get cleaned as soon as I finish cutting the outer borders for a baby quilt. that will be done very shortly.

Have a great day

LOL I'm going to clean mine off a bit before I take tomorrow's picture! Or maybe not...

And for Quiltbug - scary cutting tables are so much more fun!
