The picture I’m sharing with you today is of my sewing room at the lake house … and I’m sorry my picture isn’t better!!
During Christmas week it rained over 10 inches (many places were flooded) and I’m pretty sure we never saw the sun the entire time we were there. I will post a better picture when I get one!
But I’m not complaining ….. because in other parts of the country there were tornados and snow storms. At one point were under a warning and I had no clue … once I found out I downloaded not one but two apps on my phone to notify me if a tornado was near.
On one of the more rainy days I drove to Branson to visit the Quilt Shops (don’t ask how many times I almost wrecked running into water standing on the road).
I bought some fabric ….. but not a lot. To be honest it was raining so hard I felt very rushed and I wanted to take a picture of my favorite store but again the rain never once stopped and there was no way I was getting my iPhone wet! Next time for sure!
When I got back to the house I dug out all my fabric and placed it in my cabinet … OMG that was fun! I love organizing and I took my time making it functional but also pretty.
Jelly Rolls on top shelf … Charm Packs and Fat Quarters on the 2nd shelf. Third shelf was Layer Cakes and more Fat Quarter Bundles. The last shelf is for kits and patterns. Those cute little tins you see are called Frivols and I get one every month from the Fat Quarter Shop.
My fabric cabinet was supposed to be for my hubby (to display his fishing stuff) ….but the lower level of our house wasn’t finished when we moved in … so I took it … and now the lower level is finished …. he put a ping pong table down there…. so … it’s officially mine. He wants it ….but you and I both know a ping pong ball wouldn’t totally crack the glass!
I’ll share some pictures tomorrow of the Quilt Top I made over Christmas break.
