Why I have no Design Wall Monday picture

I still don't have a design wall! Mostly because I don't have anything put together for a sewing/quilting area...just boxes *sigh*

This is what my designated Sewing Dungeon looked  like Saturday at noon...since then I moved  the cabinets, went through almost all of those boxes,  and  felt very frustrated. yes, there are three sewing machines, a quilting machine and a serger in those containers, but less than three yards  of fabric! Most of these boxes were mislabeled. I learned that if it said "Sewing Supplies" it contained anything BUT things I could use with sewing/quilting. I found four boxes of Christmas decorations, several boxes of toys, computer things (not EQ) and lots of papercrafting supplies. I didn't find my box of thread or any of my stash of fabrics.

Onward! I will find fabrics, I will set up the  quilting  machine, I will find batting (there is a  large box in the other room that *might* have my roll of batting) and I will be sewing/quilting on something by the end of this week (or else I will go bonkers!).

May your week be most successful!

And, to be inspired by people  who really have design walls check out Patchwork Times!

For some eye candy...while at my ILs house I did work on an old row robin that I had stashed away:
This is Batik Jewels and I got the rows sewn together...I also started adding borders. There is one more border to go on this one and then I can quilt it (when the quilting machine/frame are set up). Princess Sunshine thought this would look really good in her new bedroom...

Oh the joys of moving! You will perservere and find both fabric and thread... hopefully before the end of the week not next week! Good luck.
