I'm slowly taking over the rest of the house!!!!

First you need these (don't you just LOVE that little drill ;o)!!!??!) ...... And some of this (it's just a couple of metres of fleecy tracksuit fabric) ..........
A few of these and a couple of bits of wood ...........
And you can make this............... I now have my very own portable design wall that hangs on the wall over the linen cupboard ......
Which is in the hallway just outside my sewing room ... perfect!!!
I'd love to tell you all that this was my brilliant idea, but alas it's not ;o). One of my stitchy friends, Jenny (no blog), came to our quilting group last week with one of these and I thought it was just right for someone like me who's so pushed for space. When I'm not using it I can roll it up and keep it behind the door in my sewing room, I can even leave the blocks in place if I want to - ready for next time :o)!!!

That's exactly what I need Joy! If only I could find a place to hang it. We don't have a hallway in this house. I wonder if anyone would mind if I hung it in the kitchen? LOL

Great job Joy. What did we ever do without our design walls??

Clever that you can fold it up and put it away Joy. That coconut slice in the previous posting looks yummy would you share the recipe with everyone or even just me. Thanks. Happy days.

Hi Joy! Just catching up with your blog after being away for a while. You are so right about bloggers being a special type of people. Such kindness out there. I LOVE this idea of the design wall. I'm not getting much extended time to sew at the moment, just snippets of time here & there. As a consequence, the quilt I'm working on at the moment is all over the rumpus room floor & the family has to jump over it all the time. Your design wall idea would solve that problem. Think I'll be off to the hardware shop today! Thanks for sharing. Have a great week. Ros.
