Sir Maverick

Finishing the weekend with scarlet, silver and black
This is the first Omega Delta Phi stole I made.


The black satin on this one is pretty!
Nice to work with different sets of colors.
 
I sure am going to miss this frequent visitor in my office....
such a bittersweet time...
Congratulations to you, Sir Maverick!

It's Graduation Time!

Very busy with my custom stoles!
Glad to know the word is getting out there!

This has got to be the busiest season yet!

Just showing some of the orange and blues I have finished these couple of days.

Got slowed down considerably because of sickness...

But there's light at the end of the tunnel!  

Thank you to all that have ordered!

V Custom TShirt Quilt

Remember when I told you about this box that I received full of tshirts?
If you follow me on my facebook you would have seen my post when I received it.


Well, it is a custom order quilt with tshirts
from the client's elementary school through her college years.

She had it boxed up in a closet 
and made the great decision of having them made into a quilt!  :)


Soon she will be displaying it out to be admired 
instead of  it being hdden in the closet and forgotten.
What a fantastic way to reminisce and see her past accomplishments!


I finished piecing the tshirts
...and spent most of the day quilting on the long arm.

Now it's the laborious task of hand sewing the binding.
UGH!

I will show you finished pics when all done.

If you are interested in getting a custom quilt made,
you can place your order through my Etsy here.

In the meanwhile, hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

Wood Working Weekend

What a weekend!
In an attempt to stay true to my new year resolutions, I started tackling the garage.
Not a whole lot of people have seen my garage...
This is why...

And this is in its somewhat clean slate.
I wanted to share it with you now 
because putting it out there in the airwaves 
means that I now have got to clean it...
 and make it better.
It's now a mission  to prove that I can do this.
Good news is that the hubs says that I can have the space!!! 
All of this garage space will be the new home for ECK Design!  :)
So that is incentive!  

That garage door?  It's coming down eventually!  I cant wait!
...and maneuvering around its hardware is a pain...

So for now I started on the opposite side and corner...
away from its hardware.

As I design and build, I also have to declutter and organize.
I decided to build an armoire to start.
 This cabinet will house my antique luggage that holds some of my fabric.

I wanted to make sure that I make this new haven functional and bright
and also in keeping with my personality and ECK Design's sustainablility efforts.

All the the materials for this space will be reclaimed, salvaged supplies.
I had so much fun making this
because part of the design process was working with what I had.

This was all I came up with for now. 
Hopefully I will get to putter around during the week.

Stay tuned!
