I told you that I was giving DS Shirley the miniature of our Dad's workshop. Here she is checking out all the items in it.
DS Marie gave me this wonderful set of storage cans on a magnetic strip. Had thought about putting them on the side of my desk then remembered that my work table had a metal strip along the top edge that would be perfect for it.
DS Shirley gave me these wonderful photo papers. The one on the left has an adhesive back but what I like most is the fact that is is a matte photo paper - that's really hard to find. The pack on the right has magnetic backing.
The cigars from Santa had this lovely plaid ribbon. I can see it as upholstery on dining room chairs.
BFF Joanne gave me this wonderful gift box house filled with wonderful packages of baking (already eaten), a new set of paint brushes and an incredible mini gingerbread house kit that she made.
The gingerbread house kit:
These are bits and pieces from Christmas that I saved to my stash :
From left to right:
some wired gauze ribbon
heavy cotton ribbon
some very fine plastic tubing with wire inside
some great sheets of clear plastic for windows, etc.
plastic tabs that hold clothing, etc., together (These will become the lollipops/suckers for Vern's attic.)
I took five books back to the condo library today. Unfortunately, after shelving them and all the new contributions to the library, I brought back seven!
Before Christmas, Leanne bought several things at Michael's for me:
|Photo boxes - Six for $10|
Something else on my To-Do list!!!
|These incredible tiles: regular $7 for $1.49. If I had seen them would have bought WAY more!|
1. Work on my mini UFOs
2. Exercise more and watch my diet.
3. Put more music in my life.
4. Read (that is such a given that I hesitate to include it here) but I'm hoping that I'll be able to temper the reading a bit and mini a bit more.
5. AND the big one, try to blog more often...and especially, blog more tutorials
I did go next door this afternoon and buy a new rotary cutter so I can get working on the fabric bolts for the Quilt Shop.
