New Storage

I've been working hard...marking the next quilt in Que. It is difficult in that it is mostly white....just a ring of paper pieced blocks around a white 24" square; with white beyond the blocks. It is a large quilt...98" x 103". Lots and lots of white space. Taking forever to mark. And that is unusual for me...I don't often mark quilts (except my own wholecloths). But there is so much white space on this quilt, in order to have some semblance of symmetry and consistency I have to mark it out .

I have collected so many beads and charms and buttons, etc, that I needed a better storage solution. What I wanted was the old fashioned screw and nut bins. OK....get your minds out of the gutter!

When I told Don what I needed, he said, I have one out in the garage you can have. So I took it and cleaned it up. It is exactly what I was talking about. But I needed bigger...and more of them. So he went to Home Depot for me and got this...it is great! My baggies of beads, etc. fit in the drawers and I can see what I have!!!! Big plus there. They only had 1 (:(

But have them on order, so next week I should be able to get more. Good thing, as I placed another huge joggles order this weekend!

The above photo is the one from the garage....OK temporarily, but will be replaced when the new ones come in.

And if you can stand it....another new picture of Fiona. Isn't she the cutest!

Have'nt heard anything from Mid-Atlantic, so must mean no ribbon. Oh well, getting in is good.
Have a good night!
