spaceHere in the northeast of the US we were hit with a big snow storm...over 12" in our area with another 4" more this afternoon. I want spring!
Since we're all home and not going anywhere, thought I would share a few pictures today of miscellaneous things that have nothing to do with each other.
These 2 pictures are of my fabric rack. When I buy fabric, I wash and dry it first. ( I know, 2 different thoughts on that subject) If I am going to start the project right away, I iron it, fold it twice then iron the folds. I then hang it on a hanger so it stays neat all the time. When I'm ready to rotary cut, I actually leave it on the hanger, cut what I need then hang it back up again. It's always ready and ironed when I need it again. I store my fabric in an armoire that has a hanging rod in it. I keep most hanging and the rest is folded.
Like my new hanging lamps from Ikea...my sister bought them for me to hang over my cutting table. Too cute, stainless steel, only $15.00 and they plug in so no wiring...yay!!
These next 2 pictures are a continuation of the eyeglass case tutorial. Two super ladies emailed me about the cases. Deb from "Patchwork Sanity-A Women's Piece of Mind", had a great idea to use the case to store your rotary cutter in. So what did I do, made more with some Amy Butler fabric and snapped a picture for you. Thanks Deb for the great idea. You have to visit her blog, she has the most spectacular applique work ever and beautiful quilt picture too!!
Nancy, from "Blogging, Near Philadelphia", has been sewing up a storm. She read the tutorial and made a dozen the same day. She had a great idea to use them as little gifts for her quilting retreat. She is placing one at each dinner place setting with the napkins sticking out. Then she'll tell them they are for glasses, (for those of us who can't see!!) or rotary cutters. Go visit Nancy too...great pictures of beautiful quilts!!
You ladies are the best. Thanks for emailing me!!
What's out your window??? Jodi, don't look to close at my windows...I haven't used your window tutorial yet. Thankfully, it's gray out so you can't see my streaks!!! We have over 12" of the white stuff with more to go.
Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower Foamer...my new best friend. No affiliation with it, I just love it and wanted to pass it along. We had 2 additions put on our house a few years ago so my parents could move in with us. By the end of a very, and I mean very long process, when it came down to shower choices, we put in 2 of the one piece, fiberglass tub/shower combos. The shower in my dad's bathroom is all tile and walk in for wheelchair access, but when it came to the end for ours, money spoke and the one piece was a whole lot cheaper. However, not easy to keep clean. The soap scum comes right off with this stuff. I left it on for about 15 minutes in our shower and used a scrubby pad and it looked brand new. I sprayed it in my daughters' shower, forgot to go back to it for hours and it was still perfect. Give it a try if you have soap scum...I hate that word, but we all must deal with it, or do we??? Do you have soap scum??? Wow, this was a crazy paragraph!!! I took the picture outside, because there is no bright light inside, but doesn't the snow look like scrubbing bubbles? Looks like the can left a trail!
Well, I'm off to sew a little wall hanging that I'll share later with another top that I finished yesterday. Hopefully, my daughter Courtney will start her Underground Railroad quilt today, since there is no school. Maybe I'll have pictures of that too...don't count on it though.
Have a great day,
