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!

Finished January Project

I did it!! I held off doing my first Dear Jane quilt block to finish my one project a month/January Schnibbles!!! I'm really excited to actually finish something. I think this blogging thing is starting to make me accountable for my projects.

Madeline is done! What do you think? Can't show you the quilting up close as I'm not really good yet. Too many crossovers and a few bird nests on the back creeped in. Done is definitely better than perfect, for now!! Not sure how many more quilts I need to do before I declare myself a better quilter and demand perfection.

I have so many online projects I've signed up for an bought fabric for...crazy stupid, but I couldn't decide which ones not to do!!!


Latest Project - Crayon Curtains

Well, I visited my daughter and she convinced me to sew some curtains for her daughter's pre-school classroom. It's my daughter's design, based loosely on a Pinterest photo. LOL
Here's the latest photo, what do you think?

I'll keep you updated on my progress.

I have a bunch of projects that I want to share. Just need to get an app that works to upload my pics from my iPhone or iPad, have any suggestions?  I need an easy way to upload photos and then I'll use my computer to write the blog itself. What do you use?

On the Go - More Help Needed

So, here's the quilt:

It's pretty much directional, so do I quilt my motif (taken from the appliqued elements and quilt designed in AnS) in the outside border going all around or do I do the top/bottom the same as well as the sides or do I just quilt the motif around the quilt?  Better stated, do I treat it as a wall hanging and that I want to see the cars going across the quilt at both the top and the bottom? Or not? This is why I never get anything done.  
Here's a pic of the motif (may be hard to see):

I'm using the blue thread, just have to decide, help!!!!  I know, I know, it's my quilt, but I'd love some input.
