Hotel Bathroom Inspiration

If you have been a reader for any length of time, you will know that I love to find inspiration everywhere I go….even in bathrooms.

Or maybe I should say “ESPECIALLY” in bathrooms!!

On a recent trip, the shower area had this decoration…..

My showers got longer and longer each day as I carefully studied the designs in each of the tile squares!!

Wouldn’t it be fun to start with white fabric and, using only one paint color, start painting the fabric leaving streaks as you painted??

You could then add some white to the color to dilute it further and keep painting.

I can see painting the fabrics and then cutting them into squares OR…..

maybe use tape to mark off the “grout” and paint on the actual quilt top.

Have you ever done anything like this before??? What were your results??

Why didn’t I think of that?

Don’t you hate it when you struggle with something over and over and then you see the solution and wonder….

WHY OH WHY didn’t I think of that?

My problem was bobbin storage!!

Several years ago I had been given a “Mini Stash and Store” and I loved it for holding my often-needed tools…..

The problem was this stack of partially filled bobbins sitting in front of the storage unit…..

We ALL know just how unruly these can get!!

While scrolling thru Facebook one day I saw a photo that showed the bobbins being corralled on a straw stuck into the “Stash and Store”…….

What a brilliant idea…..

So now my bobbins are secure and my storage area is much less scary!!!

What is your bobbin storage method?? Please share!!
