Sometime this week I was doing some running around town and I stopped at the Goodwill store near my home. I don't remember wanting to find anything in particular; I think it was just a case of having a little time to stop and browse. I found several Spring colored dishes that reminded me of Fiestaware and I had about five of them in my cart with the thought that they'd look quite cheerful in my kitchen hutch, but gosh darn it! As I was pushing the cart around, I kept hearing Hubby's voice in my head, asking me WHY I'D BOUGHT MORE DISHES! I swear sometimes it's like shopping with Jiminy Cricket! So I put most of them back. I did find this, though:
And when I got it home, sure nuf Jiminy Hubby asked me WHY I'D BOUGHT ANOTHER BREAD BOX because we already HAD a bread box. Ha! I fooled him, though! When is a bread box NOT a bread box? When it's a Moda Bake Shop Box!
Now perhaps I should mention that since I'm teaching a Schnibbles class tomorrow, I think it's my DUTY to buy just about all the charm packs I can find. At least that's my story, and I'm sticking to it. So I wanted something to keep my charm packs in. And I also sometimes buy extra fabric from a particular line and keep it with the charm packs in that line, so the bundle of charm packs and fabrics takes up a little more room than just charm packs alone. Turns out the bundles fit just fine inside the bread box and the lonely little charm packs that don't fit inside, sit nicely on top. Genius, eh?!
Tonight I spent a fair amount of time cleaning up and organizing things in the Sweat Shop. I had just about everything ready for tomorrow's class and it seemed like a good "stopping point" in my quilting life to get things in order before starting the next project. While I was working, Stitch threw himself down in the middle of the room and amused himself by grabbing my leg every time I tried to step around or over him. I thought some of you might be amused too.
Look what came in the mail today!
Hip Holidays by Quilt Soup. This, despite its flat appearance, is a fat quarter bundle. I soon had it properly folded though and stacked along with the 12 Days of Christmas bundle--it's a veritable Christmas fabric TOWER! But did you notice it's not quite full?! Like Jello, there's always room for fabric!
Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm up to. The weekend is here--I hope you have a wonderful one planned!
