Thank you, Amazon

About a week ago, I started trying to find a solution to pattern storage. The copy paper tape ups don't lend themselves to a lot of folding so I'm rolling them but then what. They are tall - like a yard tall. I went to Home Depot to see if I could find something to keep them in and the closest they had was a cement form but it had no bottom and I had no way to cut it down from its too tall-ness. I stopped in a packaging store but no joy.

I trolled Amazon. I could buy a pack of 25 boxes that would work but I only want 1. Otherwise, I could pay $30+ bucks for stuff that is too big, too bulky or just wouldn't work for a variety of reasons. So the hunt continues.

Meanwhile I ordered something else from Amazon that arrived today... in a box that is perfect!!

Ha! I also tried out my idea of a woven cotton shirt with knit sleeves (it's on the ironing board in the background of that picture). I think it's going to work out fine. And I got some organizing done. Several of the shirts I made last summer now look kind of sloppy since I didn't have my technique down. But, I discovered that there is enough fabric there to make sleeves that I can pair with other fabric. Recycle!

I'm done for today, though. Time for some TV and knitting.
