Projects and Presents...

OMG, I just got my next Mini Mystery Round Robin block yesterday and I have no idea what to do with it. I LOVE the colors in this one. Got to do some thinking on what to add...

I'm also thinking about how to add a new laundry hamper system to my bedroom closet. See, hubby recently decided to take out all of the white coated metal Closet Maid stuff and put in some "wood" Closet Maid stuff so it now looks like this. Here's my side...
and his side.
The end looks like this...
which leads one to think... where is the laundry hamper? Good question. Right now clothes just get piled in the floor until I move them. So I was thinking about making a hanging laundry bag to that dress section since I don't really wear dresses. I've been playing around looking online and I think I know what I want. I just have to do it. The ones I really like have a zipper in the bottom for unloading. I have some fabric I could use that was left over from both of my past laundry bag projects; some Amy Butler decorator fabric and some canvas, both of which can be seen here.

Presents? Did I mention presents? Oh, yes I did. Remember when I mentioned that my MIL and I found a common love for Fiesta Ware dishes? Yup, she did it.
My birthday is not until November but she got a really great deal on them yesterday (and she doesn't wait well so she went ahead and gave them to me!). We both loved the idea of a mixed set of colors. She already bought all of hers so these are for me! I love them! Lemongrass, marigold, peacock, and flamingo. I can't pick a favorite.

That is awesome! My dishes are Fiesta Ware too. Can't tell you how cheering it is to look in the cupboard and see that happy rainbow.

Check out Moda Bakeshop's Paint Chip placemats by Crazy Old Lady. I think they would be perfect for Fiesta Ware. Maybe an easy gift for your MIL as well.
