Thursday things

Yep - it's hard to come up with witty titles when you have a headache. Took a pill and a nap a bit ago - it's better but I won't be doing anything to brain taxing tonight. Up until around 5:00 I was having a pretty good day. Went to lunch with a friend (belated b'day lunch) and then to Pandora's Box for a little shopping. I picked up this sewing basket. Hubby said he thought it was a beer cooler.

Humm - not sure how cold it would keep the beer! It needs some cleaning up - and I think I am going to paint it and make a liner for the inside - we all know how wonderful my sewing skills are! I'll look for some fabric tomorrow since I'll be out looking for fabric for the flip flop pillow. I tried to put the sewing machine back in the closet the other day but there was a golf bag in the way - imagine, someone putting golf clubs in my sewing machine spot! The nerve. Anyway - the machine is still sitting on the floor - waiting for someone to go play golf - I guess I won't have so far to drag it back to the kitchen!
We have not had any rain from Dolly. A few dark clouds and maybe a few big wet drops, but not enough to even get the pavement wet. Was really hoping for a little cool down but I guess we aren't going to get it. Oh well - such is summer in east Texas. Thank goodness for air conditioning!

Hi Tina..I love the old sewing basket you found. The other Tina at Cherry hill had one and I think she painted it white. Very cute. I love your welcome sign you made! Thanks for the visit. cherry

Very cute! And I'm guessing like most men, your husband doesn't find it hard to associate almost anything with "beer". LOL

I'm thinking a liner with some pockets along the side, almost like a purse organizer, would be pretty nifty. Especially for smaller tools and scissors. And maybe some magnets on the underside of the lid for needles?

Like these pockets:

The sewing basket is awesome! What a find. Can't wait to see it with the new liner.

Your new sewing basket is too cute. I hope you share when you have it all prettied up.
I looked at Pandora's Box...what a neat place. I think I could so some serious shopping here. Hugs, Linda

Love the sewing basket Tina. don't you know that if you put your machine up, you'll have to drag it right back out. They don't like to stay in the closet too much.
It was good to see you today.
