My Stimulus Package

We got a nice income tax refund, so I decided to splurge and bought this design wall from Nancy's Notions. It's 72x72. I didn't have a wall big enough for a bigger piece of flannel,(you can see my little space on the wall to the right) but this will surely be big enough, lol. What's nice is that is folds up into a little bag. Here's a pic. I am in the middle of cutting and sewing 2 projects, so don't mind the sewing area, it is a mess. I will have to take it down whenever I do a quilt on the superquilter as you can see it blocks it almost totally. But so far I love it!!! The birds on the wall are for a quilt for my great granddaughter who will be here in April. I loved this pattern from McCalls Quiltings latest edition.
