Just in case you are wondering-we will probably hit 100 degrees today! Yeah, our So- Called- Spring was about 3 weeks. Ugh. It's been a pretty busy week- new brakes on the truck, new fan installed in the living room and new blinds installed in the living room and dining room. This is an old home(1973) so some things were not made to last forever. However, see my number one "like" and others below:
1. Renting my home not owning. My last home was a money pit and as I've gotten older I can't repair or install stuff myself. So then I had to pay for those repairs/installs or ask the kids for help. In the words of the "church lady"- "Not gonna happen".
2. The movie, The Martian.
Sorry, this is the only photo I could find. Matt Damon was cast perfectly for this role. The story kept me totally engrossed! I love getting lost inside a movie.
3. Omiyage for Safelight. This is from the website,From My Carolina Home. Carole provides a project each year for shelters that provide services for domestic violence. This year, the project is to make a very quick, easy, set of sunglasses case and cosmetic case:
4. The HST Cheat Sheet provided by Jacquelynne Steves at : jacquelynne
I couldn't duplicate this correctly for you, but have provided the link above in case you want to get it. I'm going to start a new project soon that requires HST's made with triangles and I need to change the instructions so I can make HST's this way ( I don't sew triangles together to make a square -well at all).
This way, you determine the finished square needed, cut 2 squares, sew the 2 together down both sides of the diagonal, cut down the center and you have 2 HST squares. So much easier and more accurate.
5. My new Rolling Shopper Tote from Amazon.
Officially, it is Olympia USA Cosmopolitan Rolling Shopper Tote. It's for traveling with quilting supplies to class or a sewing day. It arrived yesterday and is big. Vinyl on the outside for easy cleaning and durability. I needed something on wheels, but not my sewing machine case. I attend my sewing meetings on Wednesday but don't need to take my sewing machine. I was carrying a tote with supplies and projects but it was too heavy to carry from the parking lot, so I spent hours online searching for something lightweight on rollers. I think this will work. It cost $31 plus tax and shipping. It stores nicely in the back seat of my SUV or here in my bedroom.
I thank you for stopping by and hope you will leave some comments. I love reading your thoughts. Please join us at Lee Anna's blog for more "likes" at Not Afraid of Color
Have a great day! ☺
