Just look at what my friend, Sandy, made me!! Aren’t they beautiful!! Love them! Now a few years back I was REALLY into bead work…do you think that this is Sandy’s ‘subtle’ way of trying to sway me back into the world of beading?…She DID talk me into taking a class with her at Hacienda Beads in Palm Desert …oh oh…I think I’m in trouble…. I can feel the pull…My name is Paulette and I have a problem….
Back to my post~ SCORE!! Now we’re talking!!
If you have been following my blog you know that I lead a VERY exciting life (yawn)…you know that I go to the Clubhouse every Wednesday for quilting. When I go, I drive the truck (it’s about a 3-4 minute walk)…I drive because I have too much to carry. I have my sewing machine, a rubber tote with all my tools, threads in a jumbled mess, a doubled paper bag from Trader Joe’s that holds my current project and a huge zip-lock bag that holds rulers and my pens…whatever! It takes me two trips to go from the truck to the clubhouse with all these bags! I have this stuff spread all over the table and I am always searching for SOMETHING!! I’m sure all the other quilters are rolling their eyes and shaking their heads as they pull out their sewing totes on rollers….(nah..they’re too nice to do this..but it sounds good..)
Well look what I found yesterday while Garage Saling~
It’s a weekend Travel Bag…and just look inside!!
Yup, it’s brand, spanking new…and look at all these pockets..and they all snap off!! Loving it….
Now look at it…organized or WHAT?! Seam ripper…why here it is!! Bobbins…yup right here!! A new needle for my machine…see top, left hand pocket…LOVING THIS!! Does anyone want to borrow ANYTHING?…go ahead time me!!
How many things will I be carrying to the Clubhouse this Wednesday? Yup, two things… sewing machine and this lovely little tote! Got to love it!!
I KNOW you’re all dying to know how much I paid for this handy little bag~ $1…!! That’s right ONLY ONE dollar!! SCORE!!
So on Wednesday when I flop this baby on my sewing table you will probably hear the ohhhs and ahhhs from all the other Quilters-echoing right up to the Canadian border!! ;O)
Have a Super Sunday and Happy Quilting…while you watch the last of the Olympics…Come on Canada…just one more GOLD!!
