Monday Design Wall - The Stars are Growing

My Design Wall and Sewing Machine have been somewhat quiet. The scrappy wall is moving slowly, and may change a few times before finishing with something I like.

As some of my readers know, I HATE to cook. But I DO cook. Our home is 26 years old and I still had the same stove and double oven - why change, they were fine. Then they weren't! We spent a whole day shopping for a new stove top and double oven. We did not want to go through the expense of changing the dimensions, so we shopped for the same size -- except I am getting one of those fancy glass tops (even faster cleaning). When you change built-in appliances - not much sewing for a week.

It is also Mardi Gras here in South Louisiana. Family is in from Texas -- there are parades, beads, shopping and more parades. So I must depend on other Design Walls over at Judy's Patchwork Times for my fix.

Jamie, looks good so far. Enjoy your company and Mardi gras. Sounds like you'll be having a grand time. Your sewing will resume shortly. Jane

I love my glass top. It's MUCH less cleaning. I haven't gotten much sewing done lately either.

The stars look great so far! I hate to cook too, thank goodness my husband loves cooking. Have fun this week.

The blocks look great! I love the square around them.

I absolutely HATE cooking. I don't like shopping much either and to have to spend a day shopping for a stove!!! Sounds absolutely miserable to me. :) At least you can get back to sewing this week!

Great stars, and I love the choice of colors. Can't wait to see the final design.

I love it! I'll have to put that design on my to-do list. You'll love your glass top stove. I've had one for 15 years and it still looks like new.

I love the way your stars are coming along Jamie and can't wait to see how this comes together. Good luck with your kitchen....

Your design wall looks great! Changing out the appliances takes a lot of time.......last year we switched out our appliances and it took a lot of work and research. I hope it goes well and you get what you like :-)

Oh my...I feel for you. I am shopping for a washing machine and it's stressful! Plus Mardi Gras = no sewing for you!!
