I spent the last two days organizing a few things in the studio. I actually got rid of a whole box of 'stuff' and gave away three bags of
crap stuff that I had been hanging on to because I might need it one day. Funny...that day never seemed to come around! With the studio freshly purged and organized, I was ready to continue on doing more fun things!
I never did like the way my colored pencil set had to be accessed by the trays inside a tin. (120 Prisma set) The set is sold this way but it always bugged me to try and find a color when drawing. I had to balance layers of pencil trays or clear off a very large space to lay them all out on a table. Today I cut a cardboard coffee tin in order to make it into a pencil holder for just this set alone.
To my surprise, it was too big to hold the pencils in the way I wanted them to be!
Next I tried a container that steel cut oatmeal comes in. This was very close to the size I wanted. It might be a bit snug but it will do for now.
Remember our Christmas snowstorm?
This is a picture of the same spot with the branches and bamboo removed:
My husband, son, and I all worked for several days to cut the bamboo off our fence and power lines, along with all the trees and shrubs that had been destroyed. The pile of bamboo and other debris is over 50' long!
I have been working in the studio too. I am working on the Three Bridges quilt and I think I have finally found the right coloring for the tree I am working on.
Hey Jaye, if you read this you will be pleased to know that I actually did about 20 minutes of sewing on the U is for Unicorn quilt today too!
That's all for now folks. I am off to watch a bit of TV and to sew on my My Tweets block. I am finally on the last one of 12. After that, the boarder work begins!
HAPPY NEW YEAR and Happy Sewing!!!
