Well, the ball and chain quilt is at the quilter's. I really have not done much since; as far as sewing is concerned. I had to catch up on things I had neglected while I was madly sewing away on that quilt--like vacuuming and shopping for groceries!
Since I don't have anything cool to show you, I will show you something awful---my sewing room! (Good thing my neat-nik mother won't see this!) I am always in wonder of seeing beautiful sewing rooms with everything organized and lots of elbow room to work. I would love to have one of these spaces. Most of my house, while not immaculate, is pretty presentable--with the exception of this room.
OK, not too bad. This is my pegboard above my sewing table.
This is another story! As surprising as this sounds, there is a design board under all that mess! Unfortunately, I have been using it for a bulletin board for patterns, trial items, templates etc, etc. Everything but a design board. A second machine sits below the board. One of these days I hope to get my design board back. My cutting table.

Further down that same wall. Books, craft magazines, pillow forms among other misc.
Drawers full of fabric, yarn, interfacing etc.
Shocking, I know! Here's the worst part. Am I showing you this as a "before" so I can show you a beautiful "after". Well, not likely. I would be fooling you and myself! Why am I showing you this mess then? Hmm... I'm not so sure myself. Maybe it's to compare this to an ugly catepillar. Beautiful things can come out of it.
