The organizing comes in by getting two new sets of shelves. They came from Lowes. I am quite envious of people that live near an Ikea, there are some great looking crafts rooms out there using that company's products. But, the closest one to us is over 200 miles away.
The two shelving units are the base for my new ironing board. Instead of plywood, which we looked at, it is a closet door that was in the clearance section for $5. Love it! Especially since the shelves were not on sale.
All of the bins and tubs that you see on the shelves were some where on the floor in my sewing corner. It feels so good to get the floor cleared off. There were things piled under the old ironing board and in corners - uggh, stuff was everywhere. Now the GO! Baby and its dies are side by side on shelves rather than across the room from one another.
My one quilty accomplishment for the week was getting the pieced border together and on the Apple Cider quilt. It completed those square in a squares. It's the first time I've worked with a strip in a border and required a bit of fussy cutting, although not as much as I should have on two triangles.
I had to think of my quilty friend Shannon when I did these stripe corners. She loved working with these stripes when we were doing the blocks.
No fabric arrived for me this week but a box is on its way. And I am resisting buying any more fabric.
As an example, I cut and put together strips to be the first border on the Jacob's Ladder quilt. Then I didn't like it and neither did DH, which is unusual because we know how it goes when we ask for opinions, "I don't know." I should take photos more often. What was I thinking?

It's been a rainy, dreary day and I'd like to cuddle up with a good book. What have you been up to this week?
