Yes, it’s going to be a fabulous Friday here at Chez Nana!
We’re going to have fabulous weather … this unseasonably cooler weather is going to stick around for another day (ok, so maybe 85 doesn’t sound cool, but it certainly does when compared to 95-100 which is our typical mid-August temperature).We’re going to relish the delightful weather today as storms are heading this way over the weekend, and we’ll be back to hot and humid weather next week.
DH and I are going to take a road trip today, as I’m shopping for fabric for T#1’s spiral log cabin quilt. I have a swatch of fabric that will be perfect for his quilt (and has his stamp of approval) so I know exactly what I’m looking for. Worst case scenario and I cannot find what I’m looking for, I have a back-up in place, at least for the navy … I found online something that I know will fit the bill perfectly. I’m not as worried about finding a suitable off-white.
I’m also going to be shopping for storage containers for my new storage system installed in the closet in the sewing room. I’m looking for something functional yet attractive. I’m leaning toward something like this:or this:

Alas, I fear that it’s going to be difficult, if not impossible, to find something large enough to be practical and to fit the space available. And of course, there’s that pesky obstacle: cost. Since these baskets will be in a closet, with the doors closed, functionality (and cost) will no doubt win out over esthetics.
I’m really on the home stretch on DD’s chevron quilt. If I don’t get too many interruptions, I just might get the quilting finished this weekend. It will take me a little longer to get it bound as I have only large pieces of the binding fabric, no width-of-fabric yardage, so I will have to do some piecing to put together my binding strips.
Wishing you all a fabulous Friday!
