Design Wall Friday and More...

I am feeling pretty darn good with all I accomplished in the sewing/quilt room this week.
I have already shown the two quilts I got bound earlier this week.  Next I finished two more blocks for my Victoria's Friendship Quilt they are little bitty 4 inch blocks but luckily are pretty simple.  It was fun to fussy cut the floral bars on the Shoo-Fly block and the corners of the Crown block.  As we get closer to finishing up this quilt I am feeling free-er to do more fussy cutting because I know I have plenty of fabrics for finishing.

Next finish is the 2012 Baby Challenge Quilt for New Friends Quilt Circle.  I am a green and pink girl and decided to sash the featured print with it.  OK, I whined a lot about having to use flannel but as my friend Peggy says "it's part of the challenge this year"  I did another machine binding and if you notice I didn't show a close up  LOL...still working on making that look better but it will be a very sturdy binding for sure.
Last night Mr Creative and I went to an auction in the Salt Lake City area and we had our eye on three specific things.  A pretty set of china (which I didn't win), an antique (OK, 1930's-40's era) toy train and an oak hutch top....

Yep, I got the hutch top!  I am so excited to have a place to display more of my special collections and dishes.  It is sitting in front of a half wall that I am going to have Mr Creative and oldest son D use as the base.  I don't have a lot of room for a china cabinet but by placing it on the half wall it will allow me to have half of one  LOL.  It is in very good shape with all the medallions and pieces I will need to make it a beautiful display piece.  I am going to buy some lights to put in so that you will be able to see what I put inside.  I am a happy girl this morning.
Oh, yeah, Mr Creative got his train too!  LOL  We paid $90 for the train and $95 for the hutch so I tease him that by bulk mine was the better buy.
