I got in there while I was waiting to hear from the vet.
When we were at the store this morning I picked up 6 baskets for the shelf unit in the sewing room. I spent the afternoon tossing scissors/rotary cutters/blades in one, thread spools and cones in another, dyeing stuff in another, patterns in one and some random junk in another.
Looks better, huh?
I still have two more I may use those in the front room where I also two of the same units. Remember I found these sturdy metal shelf units at the Office Furniture place in their Used section for $99 each?
The project boxes are empty, but maybe soon I can fill some of them!
I also wanted to show you what my friend Patty the Quilt Lady gave me when we attended QuiltCon together. I use this a lot. It is the perfect shape for scissors and rotary cutters. I keep the basic items i need to sit by the machine and just do normal sewing.
That means i can just pick it up and bring it to the Quilt Haus when I go there to sew.
Thanks Patty! I love it! Especially that tiny scissors charm!
I also took a pair of blue jean capris I had tossed out. I actually dug through the trash to retrieve them, don't you know.
I made this stamp with a block of wood, string and some tin foil. I painted bleach on the stamp and de-colored some areas on the jean fabric. Nice.
I was going for waves. There is a show coming up and the theme is Dreams. I want to portray Nightmares. Like the flood.
I found a glass and painted bleach on the rim and made some circles. Even got a moon of sorts.
And I took my scrub brush and dipped it in the bleach and pounced it on some areas.
I tossed the pants in the washing machine and ran it through a cycle with extra water and some vinegar in the wash cycle.
Next step, plan. Then cut, design. And finally make and embellish.
