At $6.99 each (a good deal if you ask me) I figured I'd start with four of these. I know where to get more if I need them. Now I'm off to my sewing room to get the rest of my FQs organized and ready to move into their new homes.
I'm sure you've all been wondering where I have been the past month. Honestly, it's been quite the ordeal. Would you believe that I was kidnapped and held for ransom? My family couldn't (or wouldn't) come up with the loot to free me, so all this time I have been locked in a 4'x4' cell, unable to get out. Well, after an amazing and, may I say daring escape, I'm now free and able to post to my blog.
What?! You don't believe me? Honest. That's what really happened! Really!!!
Okay...I'll confess. I've been busy and I've been a slacker. So now I'm going to try and get caught up.
During the past month I've:
--Been on a trip to Nashville with DH.
--Hosted my amazing sister and her four wonderful daughters for a couple of weeks, which included a shopping trip, of course.
--Attended three different family reunions.
--Taught a quilt class (and made the class sample).
--And all the every day types of things that had to be done.
I'll post some pictures along the way, but I really want to share my great find.
Last week my oldest daughter and I made a trip to the new IKEA in our area. The store opened in mid-May, but I've been strong and didn't venture into the store until last week. No, I wasn't one of those who stood in line for five days to be the first in the store. To me, that's crazy! Besides, I knew that there was nothing there that I really needed so I stayed away...until last week.
You see, I've been reorganizing my sewing room and I needed a new way to store my FQs. Now that definitely called for a trip to IKEA, since they are the king (queen) of storage items. Yippeeeeee!!! Look what I found...exactly what I needed...
