We, especially DH, are so frustrated with the big box hardware store now. You know, the one where you can never find anything and the employees are not helpful. Well, it seems EVERYONE has been doing home improvements involving shelves lately. Even shopping multiple store locations we can't get the shelves and related hardware for my sewing room. DH tried to order for pick-up, and between when he put the quantity he needed into his cart, added other items, and tried to check out, the items he had put into his cart were cancelled, no longer in stock. We've tried every store location within 25 miles. Grrrr!!!! On line ordering didn't work either, same story.
So now the plan is to watch the inventory and stop in at the local store whenever we're in that neighborhood and get the parts we need a few at a time until we have them all.
Meanwhile my fabric stash is still packed and the baskets are stacked up waiting for shelves.
We did make some good progress, however. The movers brought the foam core panels and the hardware from the design wall in my sewing room in the old house. The foam core panels made the move in surprisingly good shape, only one small dent, not a problem. DH got the panels mounted on the wall and I have 108" flannel on order to cover them. The design wall is 8 feet wide by about 8 feet high; the top of it is as high as I can reach standing on the top step of my ladder. Big enough to lay out a queen size quilt!
This view is from the doorway to the room. The cutting table is out of view to the left, and from behind that I can photograph the upper 3/4 of the design wall.
Any progress is good, and when I need to sew I can always open the moving boxes with the fabric and sort through it to find what I need. I may have ordered a bit of quilting fabric when I ordered the wide flannel....You know, to get free shipping.
In other quilting news, I've officially joined the Pebble Creek Quilters, although I haven't met anyone in person yet. I signed up to participate in a charity sew day on Feb. 20. They only allow 10 people in the room at a time, so it'll be a nice opportunity to meet and interact with a small group.
