I’m cozied up in my room stitching Wild & Goosey blocks!
It’s amazing how resourceful one can be when needed ---after dinner we stopped by the Dollar Tree so I could get some outlet extenders --- Hotels never have enough available plugs. These will now live in my suitcase for future use.
I must say however, that the iron is driving me nuts --- it’s one of those that shuts off in 15 minutes, and I have to un-plug it and re-plug it to start it up again. UGH!
I'm laughing at the caption on the iron ---because my BRAIN feels the same way quite often too! AUTO OFF after 15 minutes --- UNPLUG to reset!
Let's just say that my evenings in my room stitching away is the equivalent of "Unplug to Reset".
Don't you agree?
I evidently forgot to pack my small travel iron ---maybe I need a second one of those to just LIVE in the suitcase too?
But now that I have the plug extenders that is a lot easier to accomplish than crawling under the desk every 15 minutes!
That round tray? It’s the tray for the ice bucket and it’s perfect to keep the crumbs from falling off the desk and on to the floor. I find it easiest to just grab a handful of crumbs.....and work with just that handful until I can't work from it anymore...rather than digging through a large bucket and being faced with too many choices when looking for the "right thing."
When the variety starts to be lacking in the handful I'm working with, I add another handful to it to spice it up a bit, and keep going.
My crumbs are contained in a plastic zipper pouch that a sheet set came in. Do you save all these for quilting totes too? I probably even BOUGHT these sheets for the simple fact that they came with a zippered pouch! Not like they would ever be used for sheet storage --- but they are perfect for transporting crumbs in the suitcase….
The zip lock bag holds some odd sizes of squares that were gifted by someone – they are working great for the larger side triangles on my blocks ---
We had a great day with our workshop --- I’m going to spend some time and get those pics ready to post in the morning so be looking for that ----
I’m winding down this day with a bit of TV as background noise, my jammies, a hot cuppa tea, puttering on the computer, and stitching up some MORE Wild & Goosey blocks!
