Ice Pellets Quilt
Yes! I finally got the binding finished on the Ice Pellets Quilt this week, and just in time for the cold weather. It's 20 degrees here today, the coldest day we've had this nice, mild, winter. Not too much to bear, considering springtime is already showing with a few blooming daffodils in the flower bed.
Blue Batik Fabric
Other than that, I've been shopping, shopping, shopping! Here's a heavenly half-yard cut of blue batik fabric, just waiting to be cut up into a new project that is brewing in the back of my mind.
Old Thrift Shop Quilty Magazines
I picked up a couple of old magazine issues, one of Miniature Quilt Ideas (I'm gonna need this - see the end of this post!), and one copy of McCalls Quick Quilts. Always fun to look at!
Portable Dental Cabinet
And, my favorite find this week, a portable dental cabinet. Wes found this for only $4.00 at the Salvation Army Thrift Shop. I had no idea what it was, but it sure helped me to clean up my quilting table!
Here's a few photos of the inside of the cabinet. Three of the drawers were meant to store the dentist's tools. They worked great for my colored pencils, marking pencils, and pens. I kept the little papers in them to show which tools go into which slots.
Many of the drawers have handy separated compartments, great for storing all my supplies, a Chinese fortune, and a 1937 Buffalo Head Nickel.
I was surprised how handy this little drawer was for storing a small rotary cutter, my seam ripper, and my favorite marking tool.
Pepper Mint's Future Bed
I also found this nifty iron bed for Pepper Mint. I'm not sure what it's intended original use was, but it will make a great bed for Pepper Mint's home (now in renovation). I need to make it a mattress, and of course, a quilt, or two!
Until next time, please visit the Curlicue Creations shop, and have a super day!
