I just got back from Wally's World where I saw my sister, 2 sisters-in-law, MIL, FIL and an uncle. I tell you, Sunday morning at Walmart is a socialite's dream in my town. LOL.
I bought some more clear storage bins for fabric--smaller ones this time for all the one-inch strips I have for log cabin quilts. I really don't seem to be getting anywhere in my quest to organize my fabric. I just keep buying bins, which take up just as much space as the previous boxes. Everything still looks like a big mess.
I've concluded that without a big exclusive space for quilting, I am always going to be living in the midst of a big mess.
That's just the way it is...
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
