More sewing and crocheting supplies

| No Comments

Oh, my. A monster has been awakened. In me. More sewing/quilting supplies...the desire to look at and touch and have a variety of colors and patterns of fabric...

A Michael's Craft Store coupon for 30% off all regular priced merchandise drew me in... I left with a stash of 29 skeins of Red Heart Super Saver yarn (in Navy, Burgundy, Claret, Soft White, Aran, and Buff) for donation lap blankets and whatever else strikes me, 2 Omnigrid quilting rulers (4x14-inch and 3x18-inch), an Omnigrid quilting travel kit (1x6-inch ruler, 4x4-inch ruler, 6x6-inch ruler, 8.75x11.75-inch cutting mat), and a piece of 45x60-inch batting to use as padding on the 24x48-inch cutting board Bill made for me this week.

Then I stopped at Orchard Supply Hardware to see if I could find something like a sheet of vinyl that I might want to use on the cutting board instead. Nothing. Bill had suggested contact paper/shelf liner so I looked but the 18-inch sheets are too narrow and I don't want to have an overlap (and I didn't want to mess around with matching the overlapping pattern either!). I did, however, find a small 3-drawer storage container perfect for bobbins and other smaller sewing items. Oh, and, I did walk through the garden area, but it's hard to be inspired when it's been raining nearly everyday here in the Bay Area for 6 weeks now...including today...and tomorrow...

It's time to reorganize the yarn collection to try to get more space so I'll feel less crowded in the craft room...
