Wednesday Wombat

So, the other day we had some errands to run, library, stuff like that.  As I was opening the car door for my son, I happened to look down … and saw that he wasn’t wearing any shoes.

“What the … where are your shoes?!  It’s 20° out here and you don’t have any shoes on!”

“Uhm … I forgot, I guess.”

“You forgot?  You forgot your shoes?  How in the world does one forget shoes, especially when one is walking on frozen snowy concrete in 20° weather?!”

At which point his father dragged him back into the house for his shoes.  I swear.  *eyeroll*

Now that my friend has brought over all her unwanted sewing stuff, it’s brought home to me how desperately I need to do some organizing around here.  Did I say 7 bins of fabric?  Not little bins either, but the big ones you use to store holiday stuff.  The B-I-G bins.  7 of them.  Full of fabric.  7 giants bins.  The stack is about 6’ high, I’m not kidding.  She’s a quilter and has always maintained that if I just tried it, I’d love it.  See, I’ve always enjoyed making baby quilts by hand, but just a simple 2 piece kind of affair.  My friend makes the kinds of quilts that people will pay several hundred dollars for, really complex kinds of designs with tons of tiny pieces.  I just don’t have the patience (nor the space!) for all those little pieces.  I think I might be able to make some simple designs though. 

But I digress.  I have all these bins of fabric now, and while my apartment is a decent one, it’s not big enough to just leave 7 giants bins sitting around, and the bins won’t fit in my little storage closet.  I’m going to have to break down and get several smaller bins so I can store them, there’s just no other way.  I figure if I’m going to do that, I might as well go the whole route and do the whole place.  It’s time.  I guess that’s sort of like a New Year’s Resolution, right?
