After getting the rose top finished, the backing washed and ready, I looked at my sewing room. Though I had ironed and stacked the pile of fabric, the room is still a total disaster. Why did I stack the fabric instead of putting it on the shelves? Because there’s still no room on the shelves! It’s beyond ridiculous! I noticed this picture from a while back on my memory stick.
Even though the fabric is folded much more neatly now, the shelves are just as full. I’m spinning my wheels. I’ll never get this sewing room clean. I’ll never use this fabric. I’ll never buy more fabric! I’m feeling a bit desperate. Maybe there should be a show for Desperate Quilters!
Despite not being dressed for public viewing (at least I didn’t have on the Wicked Witch or the Cow T-shirt), because I thought I was going to quilt in the basement til about 10, I knew I had to ran to Wal-Mart for storage containers. I looked at myself and I looked at the clock . . surely at 6:50 a.m. I could get in there and out without seeing anyone I know. Sure enough . . in and out of Wal-Mart, home before 7:30 with my storage containers.
Four smaller containers and four larger containers. Projects (UFO’s) will go into these containers. The sad thing is I’d already bought some containers and can’t find them. Vince cleaned in his office the last few weekends and I’m thinking maybe he used them. Maybe not but how could I lose 8 or 10 plastic buckets? Don’t answer that!
Those nice storage containers are $3.50 at Wal-Mart. The big ones and the little ones — $3.50. Makes no sense to me. I’ll probably be back to Wal-Mart before the day is over to get more of them.
There’s just too much stuff in this room! No one to blame but me!
