A New Way to Store Patterns & A Special Thank You
Since coming home from Florida, I've come home with another idea for my sewing room. I am a visual person and I love quilt patterns, but I have one problem. I buy a pattern and forget that I have it. So I have a solution to my problem: a trellis that was 40% off at Joann Fabrics. I bought two.
They are attached together by black Velcro that is used to organize computer cords. You could also use those plastic ties that pull up tight and lock.
I put rubber covers on the bottom of the trellis so they wouldn't scratch the floor.
Then you need rings that you can buy at an office supply store and a paper punch.
I then hung my patterns. The Patchwork Pig quilt shop had much heavier and taller trellis' displaying their patterns. They had three attached together, but two work well for me.
Just wanted to thank Mom and Dad for such a special time together in Florida--hope we can do it again!
If you are near Plant City during strawberry season, stop at Parkesdale Farm Market for strawberry shortcake. Dad is trying to be funny taking my picture with two :)
I only ate one although they're good enough to eat two!
