|And then there were FIVE *wink*|
I washed GREEN fabrics until I began to feel like a stalk of broccoli!!! I wonder if that is the reason I ate so few salads this month? Hmmmm..... oh well :*) Honestly, I had no idea I had so many GREEN fabrics!!! And it's not even my favorite color - go figure :)
I did start pulling out some fabrics to audition for my Soul Searching block....
..... but all plans of working on that flew out the window when My Guy announced he was ready to set up my Sizzix station in the studio!!! Yippee!!! I was almost as excited as Gypsy gets when she hears me yell "Treats!"
Up to now, my Sizzix Big Shot Pro - which is extremely heavy! - has been stuck under a table. I really haven't used it as much as I would like because it is too much trouble to get it out and find a place to set it up.
We had a HUGE legal-size, five-drawer lateral filing cabinet in one corner that I was anxious to move out of there, and we decided it would be the perfect place to give the Sizzix cutter a permanent home. Here are the file drawers in the middle of the TV corner of my studio....
And here are the cabinets we planned to put in there instead - two 24" base cabinets in white.....
And here are the same cabinets all boxed up again and back downstairs so they could go back to Lowes!
I didn't realize until we got them set up that my dies didn't fit in them - oops!!! I have the extended tray cutter which uses 25" long dies, so back to Lowes the cabinets went. Ask me what My Guy thought about that little miscalculation - especially considering he is moving all these cabinets up and down the stairs with a bum knee! (with my capable help of course *smile*)
And FINALLY, here are the new ones - one 18" and one 36" base cabinet.....
The cutter has to have all that space on each side for the tray to clear on each end
as it moves through the machine.
Yep, it looked like 10 bombs dropped in there!
So I suppose I will be working on May's GREEN for a little while into June. Hopefully Angela won't bounce me out of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!! I promise to do better in June.... which by the way is tomorrow!!! Wow, how time does fly, doesn't it?
Hope you are finding fun, quilty ways to enjoy your summer!!!
Hugs & Blessings!
