Friday's happening's

Today we took our trailer to help my Mom move some of her things out of a storage facility to her garage at her apartment.That didn't take too long but it did start pouring so we weren't able to get everything. We will finish that up tomorrow.

The craft room progress isn't very much yet so no new pictures...I am on my way to Walmart tonight to look at some different types of storage for my fabrics and for my new presser feet for the sewing machine. Someone I don't know who mentioned using a clear plastic stack of drawers for the fabric, so want to price them and see how much they cost. I know I definately want whatever I find to be clear so I can see what is in them.

I am still waiting very patiently for my embroidery patterns to arrive in the mail. I am not a very patient person so this is just driving me crazy. I don't think we have any store around here that carries patterns for embroidery or I would just buy locally. There is one store that I have never been in, maybe I should check it out and see what they sell, it's actually a quilt store but hey you never know.

I am going to head out the door to Walmart get back home and then start reading one of my new books from Christmas..The Duggars 20 and counting, and then I plan on going to bed early tonight. I read my other Christmas book the other day...Multiple blessings, it was real good and I would reccommend it to everyone.



  1. I read the Duggar was really good!
    I use clear plastic drawers for my fabric storage and then store by color. I also have a drawer for larger pieces that would be good for borders and backings. I tend to buy 1/2 yard cuts, so most of my fabric is in color coded storage. My favorite one is a 3 drawer storage on wheels. It sits next to my sewing table. The others are stored in the closet.

  2. I hope your patterns show up at the house soon. We're not known for our patience around here either lol!

    Where do you order your patterns from?

    Have a blessed day!

  3. Bren~ I just started the book but so far like it. Thanks for the storage ideas, I found what I want just can't really justify spending the money right now with Roger out of work..

    Sharon~ I have NO paitence when it comes to waiting for things in the mail, I ordered a few embroidery patterns from Crab apple hill studios, they are for Valentine's day.
