Wow! There are some creative folks in this world. And I am "gleaning" ideas left and right on Pinterest! Its really fun to search for the "buried treasures", pin them to your own boards, and then see which of your friends likes them. I can pretty much predict which friends are going to like which pins!
And dear Amy Lynn is coming up with stuff I never dreamed existed...
her funny "found" quote yesterday....
"Good moms let you lick the beaters, Great moms turn off the mixer first"
Thankfully, on this I fall into the great moms category!
Then she found this..
|At least 3 of my 5 sons would have loved this in their bedroom as little boys!|
I found a good "keep Amy busy project"! And set her to work the other day....
Our wood floor cleaning duster needed a new pad ~ the other had a hole in it ~ found the perfect solution on pinterest....
Here are the results....
Oh, she went upstairs with the directions, figured it all out, and took all the pictures of the various steps~
|measured the duster head and added 2 inches to each side|
|used my favorite color! Bought these throws 1 1/2 years ago at Walgreens for $1|
|cutting the fabric to fit the pattern (doubled because this fleece is thinner)|
|made sure it would fit before she sewed|
|her "new" machine hard at work|
|the finished project ~ one blanket yeilded 4 dust heads + one happy Mom! Thanks Amy!|
I've seen lots of neat organizational stuff for sewing rooms ~ so I got started last week...
|jumbled fabric shelves full of crafting potential|
|neatly rolled "I can see what I have" fabric|
And pictures of fabric I bought several years ago at a quilt shop near my mother in law in VA...
I "collect" fabric (guess thats really a "duh" statement since you can see the closet). But honestly, there is fabric in there that I don't think I bought/acquired/stole out of moms closet. Maybe a fabric fairy "blessed" me with some goodies ~ wonder if I could leave a list and could get more that way?
A friend works at a print shop and he brought me all the cardboard to roll the fabric on ~ plus his wife and daughter supplied me too! So I can organize, clean, find, discover, wonder all to my hearts content.
But then I discovered that the cutting table I am using to work on is way too short (kinda funny coming from someone who is only 5'2") So, I've been researching cutting/work tables ~ another project for Greg to add to his "honey do" list!
