Good evening all!!! (Or morning, depending on where you are.) Either way, welcome to my little corner of the world. It’s getting late here but I wanted to put in a short update on the fabric organization. I do this mostly for myself to keep track of how I’m doing, but love when you follow along with me.
These are some of my shelves on Tuesday morning:
Right shelf #2 with Christmas fabrics 1-9-18
Right shelf #3 Halloween fabric, panels, and batting
Right shelf #4 misc fabrics
These three shelves are what I’ve been working on most recently. I got all of my Christmas fabrics folded and then worked on shelf #3. I got the Halloween fabrics folded and moved the batting to a lower shelf, so that shelf is almost empty. I also had two stacks of fabric on my ironing board that I have started folding, which are being stacked on my work table at the moment. I also folded two cuts of St. Patrick’s Day fabric. So shelf #2 now looks like this:
Right shelf #2 1-10-18 with holiday fabrics
I didn’t have time to work in there today, but I’ll be back to it tomorrow. So it’s coming together, slowly but surely.
Wanna see something pretty??? I was out late Sunday evening while it was still frigid around here. I stopped by one of my favorite places in my little town and got this pic.
1-7-2018 Waldensian Fountain
Yep, it was frozen solid. It probably has been for the past two weeks, I just haven’t been by there during the cold snap. It’s a rather large fountain for the size of my little town, probably 10 to 12 feet tall. I just love it.
Today I had my cardiology visit and met my new doctor. He seems to be an ok guy. He wants to check my blood pressure monitor before we even think about changing or adding any meds. That sounds like a good idea to me.
After I left the doctor’s office I went to take the crochet throw to Frances. She had given me some yarn that she had started to make a throw with years ago. I knew I wouldn’t be able to find that specific yarn now and I didn’t know what size hook she had used or even what stitch she was using, so I frogged what she had done and started over. It was a variegated yarn and I found some solid yarns close in color to the original colors. I did a simple double crochet with all the yarn she had given me, then made large stripes with the coordinating colors. I took a quick picture of the throw on her chair. She seemed very pleased with it, so that’s all that matters.
Frances’ throw 1-10-18
I love how it pooled in the variegated part. She said she is going to give it to Julien, since that was what she originally planned to do with it when she was making it. I’m still working on the bed blanket for Julien that he asked me to make for him, so he’s going to have two new cuddlies to snuggle under.
On an entirely different note, I’ve been burning a new Yankee Candle scent. It smells scrumptious. And I mean that literally. It’s called Chocolate Cake and it smells like a rich, luscious brownie baking. What was I thinking??? Here I am trying to cut back on the sweets and now I’m burning a candle that makes me hungry! Oh well, it’s divine and I just love my Yankee Candle items. I use their candles and especially love their Scenterpiece® Easy MeltCup System. I’ve been using it for a few months now and just love how easy it is to use and how great it smells. It’s a wax melt system that allows you to use the melts without having to deal with cleaning out the wax from the melter. The wax is in plastic cups and you just change the cups to change the scent and you can use the cups over and over. I’ve had a cup’s scent still be strong after about two weeks of almost daily use. No, I’m not an ambassador for Yankee Candle, I just love their products. I also have their reed diffusers in the kitchen and my bedroom. I think my favorite scent is their Coconut Beach. They always seem to have great sales going on, so if you like to keep your home smelling nice, go check them out.
Well, I’ve dragged this out long enough for tonight. I hope everyone has thawed out sufficiently, just remember that winter has only started, so don’t get too discouraged if you’re wanting warmer weather. It’ll get here in its own good time and in six months or so we’ll be complaining about the heat (at least I will be). Take care all, be safe, blessed be, hugs!!!
P.S. I got through a box of papers from the bedroom yesterday too, so that makes me happy. If I do decide to move in with my dad, I’m going to have to get through a lot of stuff around here. And I need to get through it anyway, whether I move or not. TTFN
