Hanging Stuff

My table runner has a new home. See that glaring sun that's trying to fade all my lovely fabric?


I noticed that the pinwheel runner was the perfect size to shade the side of the glass hutch. So up it went with 3M's command poster hanging strips. They stick to the cloth!


And although I didn't buy any fabric last week, I did get a treasure to hang in my space from etsy.

He says he can hear the Forest whisper
by Hidden Eloise at Hide N Seek.

Isn't she wonderful!? As I mentioned to Julie, get something fun for your sewing space - it helps with the fabric buying withdrawal.

I absolutely love hanging artwork on my studio walls... my sister gave me one, a friend painted me one, and the other I found on Etsy. I'm itching to buy more heehee!

I love those command strips! They make them for hanging pictures too, it's like plastic velcro, and no holes in the wall! I love your blog, and all those mini quilts are awesome! I'm having a giveaway if you're interested.

Also, luuuure those 3M strips.

They help 'cause the crafty ain't so handy with hammer.

Gotta love 3M! Perfect use for your little table runner. We don't want to ruin our hard earned fabric stash!

BTW-A little retail therapy is good for the soul every once in a while.

I love those command strips!!! I now use them to hang just about everything in my Studio... It's so much easier to change your mind when you haven't put a nail in the wall!

I use Command Velcro strips to keep my design wall upright. It also allows me to change where the design wall is... when I get an itch to rearrange my space.
