Now THAT'S A Tool Chest!

It's been a busy week, I haven't posted or even checked out your blogs on my regular daily route, sorry about that. I have been putting Sundance through her paces. I remember, when I went out to IA for longarm instruction last Fall, Dawn Cavanaugh's advice was to put in an hour a day to see any measurable, consistent, improvement. She cautioned against five hours one day and then skipping four days altogether. I am guilty of the latter. Then, when I find time to quilt, I want it to be PERFECT; I end up becoming frustrated and spend lots of time ripping out and starting over. This last week was the week, the week of putting in the required "hour a day", no more excuses. I'll post some photos later on this week of what I'm working on. I keep a tool box close at hand with all the necessities that Sundance and I need for a happy quilting session; bobbins, oil, compressed air, needles, straight-edge, thread clippers, etc. I saw this tool chest in Lowe's on Friday evening. Can you imagine how organized one could be with this monster standing nearby? It's equipped with an MP3 player hook up, (there are booming speakers up under that "hood"!), amazing lighting and a built in refrigerator (chilled Chardonnay, anyone?)! It's wired with external electrical outlets (think "iron"!) from the side and each full extension drawer is lined with cushioned foam to protect one's tools, it even has a concealed garment hook on the outside! Now THAT's a tool chest, what more could any self-respecting quilter possibly wish for?!

Life is Good!

I hope you brought one home with you so you can party it up in style while quilting :D

WOW that is almost like a small apartment, I am sure that it would serve VERY WELL for quilting supplies! I especially like the refrigerator idea :>)...I am always running to grab a bottle of water from my refrigerator! Glad to see you back, I was beginning to worry about you!

Having a husband who's car cannot pass a Lowe's or Home Depot with making an unexpectedly sharp detour ... I've learned that there are a lot of neat items in those stores that are good for quilters. I do think your tool chest wins the Grand Prize though!

What a great idea. I could stay in my studio for hours with the frig stocked....but how could I get that thing upstairs to the room with the machine in it. It looks quite heavy. Does it have a place for pantos? :-)

This monster is amazing! When is it going to live at your house?

I see! My hubby will love it so it won't be in the sewing room, if we get it! :)))

I know what you mean, the weather is so nice and I haven't post too much either!

Enjoy your day!
