as you can see, it was just enough to cover the car... sorta. Then it started a very thin rain but hey, I can live with that! Inch-wise I can't tell you how many we got, but who cares? I'm retired!
One more wonky house to show you... it was a good idea in my head but I'm not too fond of the reality; maybe it'll grow on me?
The body of the house looks a bit pale, although I like the fabric a lot. I wanted the door to be a very slight angle, but I didn't angle it quite enough. Larry, Moe and Curly seem to be happy about it, though!
As I was cleaning in my sewing room yesterday I ran across these empty paper towel tubes stuck on a shelf,
then I had to remind myself why it was such a great idea to save em...
They make great storage tubes for oversized patterns!
I supersized this picture one day last summer to make a quilt for my sister's grandson or -daughter -- they're twins! Anyway, it's to be an applique pattern and I didn't want to get fold creases in it. Sure, I could have cut the pieces apart but then I'd prolly lose the pieces... The tubes are just what I need to store it.
I just rolled up a couple patterns and slipped them inside a tube - perfect solution! I have an empty popcorn tin that I can stand these up in until I need them.
I'm not a long-armer, but I bet these would be great for storing those quilt patterns too!
Have a great Tuesday, sew forth and sew on
