MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Cabinets and denim

Because today was spent doing mundane things like grocery shopping and laundry, obviously nothing creative got done.  In the interest of having at least SOMETHING to mumble about I took these two photos.


The first one shows the new cabinet I picked up on my thrifting expedition.   It's hard to tell from this but it fits exactly under my cutting table (without a bit of space to spare!).  My Cloth,Paper, Scissors magazines and my Quilting Arts magazines are in the bottom, and my Sew Somersets are on the shelf above.  When I find where I've put my other ones (!!) I'll be able to fit them in too.  It's perfect for the space and exactly what I was looking for.  Yay!

Above is the pile of denim pockets and design elements I came home with.  Of course they just HAPPEN to be attached to full pairs of jeans which I will now have to find a space to store until I can get them used up.

This weekend is our Canadian Thanksgiving and I rather doubt I will get a chance to post over the next few days.  If it's your Thanksgiving, have a good (and safe) one!
