Sewing Room Update

I bought more shelves at Costco and they have shaved off 3/4 of an inch and now my three six-drawer plastic drawers are too wide!!! They also decided to make the shelves in black!!! So they don't match!!! Makes me so angry!!! I bought them specifically so that I keep the drawers off the floor so that the drawers wouldn't drag on the Berber carpeting. I thought about ripping up the carpeting, but I digress...

So, I'd bought two shelves earlier that are the bigger size and gray shelves and discovered they looked great and would have used them both to house the six-drawer plastic drawers (I have seven of them, three on each, I'd hoped!) but I had an extra shelf and decided to just use it as it was designed--for shelves! I planned to buy more, but never dreamed they'd be a different size!

I'm still trying to decide what to do...should I dismantle the larger one and use it? Too late to take them back because I've already assembled one and that's how I found out they'd shorten them and made them narrower!

Murphy's Law at work!

  1. Oh no!
    Wouldn't that rot yer jocks? as a neighbour of mine says.
    Roughly translated, it means- isn't that enough to make you stamp your foot in anger!
    We had a similar problem.
    I make soap, and bought these fantastic little units for drying... basically little sets of basket drawers on wheels.
    You could take the wheels off and stack them if needs be.
    Absolutely fantastic things, and so handy not just for drying soap, but great for babies clothes, toddler's and children's 'smalls' etc.
    I was so impressed that I went back to purchase more.
    But alas!
    They were so popular that they had sold out of the original. The new shipment were dodgy, flimsy nasty quality smaller units. That were more expensive.
    :-(
    Very annoying.
    I feel your pain!

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some shams...in 2017!!



I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

Getting Back to Sewing

Sorry, I've been trying to re-arrange my studio and just didn't seem to get back to sewing/quilting, but I'm forging ahead because I missed all of January's blocks of the 365 Challenge! These are really tiny and I can see I need to be much more accurate with my cutting/sewing. LOL I'm using all stash fabrics, so my dark may not be dark enough and my lights might not be light enough, but my record for finishing projects prohibited me from spending money on this one!! 
Here's February 12, 2016 block: 


Now, here's the beginning of the blue and white quilt that I'm making. I designed it in EQ7 and the rows of the top left corner have been sewn together, so we'll see how accurate EQ7 is when I go to sew the diagonal rows together.  I am using it as leaders/enders for the 365 Challenge because they took a bunch of seams so more rows are finished without realizing it. A good thing.
Just want to mention that my design wall is four 2' pieces of that foa…
