So much happened this week...but when does nothing happen around Clan Curtis? There is always something. Despite the mild chaos I did work a bit on this quilt. I am calling it "Birds of a Feather Flock together" I plan on hand quilting this one too. The quilting will tack down the little wings of the geese. I have a couple already pressed down in anticipation of this event.
On Thursday I had a Doctor Appointment for my creepy face rash and was also diagnosed with Hypertension. While no one seems to know what the heck is growing on my face, the doc did know just which ACE inhibitor to put me on. Yes, yes I know I am young, but it runs in my family. So I am making diet changes...not that big of changes as I really don't use that much salt anyway. I am not real wild about salted breakfast meat...but I am cutting back on my morning cup of coffee. Just 2 cups now instead of however much I used to drink.
Also on Thursday I got the deal of the century! Well, maybe not the century, but a pretty good score nevertheless. Sam and I decided to stop by the PX and wonder around a bit and low and behold! There were all these shelves out front kinda off to the side. They looked worried and confused, if you can imagine that look on a bunch of wooden shelves. The PX (Post exchange for you non military souls) is being renovated so each time I go everything has been shoved around. Well, back to the shelves...I decided that my fabric sure would look pretty all folded and stacked up on them, so I marched Sam back to the manager's office and asked her if she would consider selling some of the shelves to me.
- "Sure, how many do you want?"
- "well 4 should be fine. How much for 4"
- " hummmm how about $20"
- "really? For all 4?"
- "OK...do I pay you?"
How awesome is that? The only catch was I had to get them home myself. No worries! My new mini van is super awesome and can become a cargo van in a matter of moments.
Here is a bigger shot of the bedroom. The two old quilts are the only ones we have in the house at the moment. Which is fine for now since it is not really cold at night, but I am going to need to crank up the quit production if our Australia shipment does not hurry up and get here. Everyone says it gets very cold here in the winter.
This is my little sewing tree house all set up with my new cheapo shelves.
Here they are again...just waiting for my fabric to arrive. As you can see they used to hold Lotions and creams, I was going to paint the shelves a rich French Blue, but changed my mind and decided to keep the natural wood. I can always paint them with my next move.
Ok, I need to go start my day!
Have a great rest of your weekend,
