What Am I Doing?

Hi everyone!  Once again, thank you for the welcome back into blogging on this blog.  I appreciate all of your comments and questions, both here and on FaceBook.

One thing several of you asked about was what I am going to do with all the "bagets" I've been making!

The ones I made out of fused shopping bags right now are serving two functions:  some are in the Studio serving as storage for things like zippers or fasteners or leash and collar parts, and others are in a stack of things that will go into the master bathroom, once the remodel is done.  They will be great organizers for inside the drawers of the vanity - and being plastic, they can be wiped out easily!

For those who may be wondering, the remodel has stalled out a bit, let's say.  We're now hoping it will be completed by Thanksgiving.

The other "bagets", except for the homespun one, are being used already to store my fabric scrap strips!


I actually allowed myself to throw away the basket of 3/4" strips, as I don't really do miniature quilts any more, and if I decide to take it up again, I'll cut new strips.  Go me.  I still need to make one for the 1" strips, then I'll arrange them all in a more pleasing fashion.  They certainly take up less room in the closet (AKA Karen't House of Fabrics) than the baskets did; I feel like I've reclaimed a little space in there!

The homespun one ... I admit, I've fallen for it.  Try as I may to get away from homespuns and denim, they are my comfort colors.  That little "baget" will go somewhere out where I'll see it and use it.  I just don't know where yet.

I also made a little something for a special friend of mine.  I can't wait to show you, but on the chance that she might read this, I'll wait until it arrives at her house.  It was SUPER fun to do and gave me much joy!!!

That's it for now.  We're planning a birding spree for tomorrow (it's been TOO LONG!), so no sewing for a bit.  I'll be back before you know it.  Wish us luck with the birds!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Thanks for clearing that up! They are so colorful and pretty lined up on the shelf!

    Sorry about the remodel delay. I understand how that happens and how so not fun that is. It doesn't matter if you have other bathrooms in the house to use it's still a pain in the butt to deal with the mess, commotion and introoders in the house while it's dragging on. Our little itty bitty half bath took three months! The two full baths didn't take that long although it sure felt like it.

    Have fun birding!

  2. That is a great way to brighten up the shelves AND be organized. Nice work.

    Truly understand the frustration with the delay in the construction. Been there, done that, and hoping not to go there again for a long, long time. We have carpet installation throug 3/4th of the house starting tomorrow. Wish us luck with that.

    Happy birding:)

  3. Your bags look so neat and tidy - all in a row. Have fun with the birdies! We can't wait to see the photos!

  4. I love all your little bags. Sorry to hear about the remodeling problems. Thanksgiving is a long time to wait for completion.
