Block Lotto Bannet on RailThe Block Lotto isn’t going anywhere, but . . . I am moving. Tomorrow is the day that my cable and internet move to the new apartment. The movers are coming on Saturday. Even if things go terribly wrong, I should be able to find a work-around in time for the SNEAK PEEK email sometime on Sunday.

In case you missed it, that’s our block lotto blog banner hanging over the rail of a small patio of my new apartment.  The window on the left is … in my future sewing room. It is very small, but it’s the first time in a long time that I’ve had a dedicated sewing space and I will make it work.

Please be patient if I don’t see your blocks on the blog or respond to your email right away.

Remember even if you have sent me email with your photo (for use in the virtual quilt or for any other reason) you still need to post them on the blog in order to be entered into the drawing at the end of the month and to receive the sneak peek email on Sunday. The deadline for posting in time for the sneak peek is Sunday 12:00 (noon) on the east coast of the US. The deadline for posting in order to be entered in the drawing in exactly 7 days later: Sunday, July 31, 12:00 (noon) on the east coast.


  1. Good luck on the move, Sophie. You must have the routine down pat. Any dedicated space for sewing is good, no matter how small. Kathie L in Allentown

  2. Thanks for the dates – and how great that you will have a sewing room now! Hope this means the job you wanted came thru for you! : ) June in San Diego.

  3. I finally did start the new contract job this month–I'm definitely burning the candle at both ends right now … with no time for quilting!

  4. Best of luck for your move. As much of the sneak pick I can get of your new apartment, it looks really great. Hope your sewing work will do great there. So are you moving all by yourself? Though it is hard to settle down in a new place, but I’m sure you’ll do just fine.

  5. My sewing room is very small – it's about 7.5 ft by 8 ft. But you'd be amazed what I get in it – and just having somewhere I can leave things out is so helpful in getting more work done. If you live by yourself, you have a little more leeway that way, anyway, but it's still annoying to have sewing stuff all over the dining room table.

  6. My sewing room is in an old kitchen in my house that at one time was part of an apartment. We used to rent it out, but now we use it ourselves. I keep my fabrics in the cabinets and do my cutting on the countertop. It's actually not bad, and the refrigerator is right there if I need a Diet Coke!
    Good luck with your move Sophie. I hope it goes smoothly and that you love your new neighbors!
