Binding, Clips and Rope Bowls…

Friends, I hate to be the bearer of “bad news” but the piano key border on my Dresden Plate quilt isn’t going to happen. I just don’t have enough fabric. I bought the fabric for this quilt four years ago, and well, procrastinators can’t be choosers. I am, however, doing the binding in the dark grey fabric that matches the backing, so that will be nice. I like it, and I hope you do too.

I received my 100 piece clip set that I ordered from Amazon for only $8.99 (free shipping!) and I must say I am very pleased! I was concerned that the quality would be lacking, but they are very sturdy and strong! Even my husband was impressed (which is not an easy feat!). You can still grab your set here. (affilate link) I had enough clips to hold all the binding in place on my quilt, an oversized queen, with plenty left over. Love it.

How about the cute rope bowl they are in?! Vicki Wimsett over at Sewing Doe made me a set of these amazing bowls. I have a large one and two smaller ones. They are great for holding all kinds of goodies. I love supporting other artists, especially when they create things I love, but just don’t have the patience to make myself! You can check out Vicki’s Etsy shop here. Tell her Four Peaches sent you! If you have a fabric you’d like her to use, like I did, you can send her that and she will make custom bowls just for your decor. How fun is that?!

My husband is a Genius!

I recently converted my husband, a faithful washcloth-user, to what I call a poof-user. You know the scrunchy poofs you use in the shower to exfoliate your skin? I love my poof and he started using one, and now he loves it. It’s a win-win situation. Less laundry to wash and we go through way less soap now. Seriously, the man could go through some soap! The only issue I’ve had is, what in the world do you do with the poof after you’re done with it? In our apartment in West Texas, I have two command hooks that we hang them on. This week we are home in Texas and there is no way I am putting command hooks on my marble shower! So, I usually hang mine on a shampoo bottle or something. This morning I get in the shower to discover this truth: MY HUSBAND IS A GENIUS!

Genius!

Mind blown!!!! How did I not think of this? I got so excited I started yelling from the shower, “You’re a genius!” (not that he heard me or anything! Men.) When I went back in the bathroom to take a picture of this amazing feat of male ingenuity, I told him, “I’ve never even seen this idea on Pinterest! This could go viral!” So, here we are at the Carley house, changing lives with my husband’s amazing knack of practical simplicity. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it.

Have a peachy day!
