When the day starts by having to call your credit card company due to fraudulent charges, things can only get better from there, right? Well, so it seems.
Actually, they had called me Saturday night, but since I was on the treadmill I let it go to voice mail and didn't listen to the message until Sunday morning. I logged in to my credit card account online, and there it was, six different iTunes charges in two days, which I did not make, totaling just under $100. So the company canceled my card and opened a new account with a different number. They were very pleasant about the matter, which made me feel a little less annoyed about the entire situation.
Norm and I assembled my new cutting table last night without incident (unlike the bookshelf a couple weeks ago). Thanks to Karen for the tip on this table, which adjusts up to 38 inches high. I've got it set at about 36 inches, and my back is ever so grateful! It's 59 inches in length fully extended, but the two side sections fold down and the legs move in, for a smaller footprint when you need it. And I like the shelves on the bottom for storage. I found this one online at hayneedle.com.
I don't have one of those large cutting mats yet, and a 24 x 18 inch mat wanted to slide around on the smooth table surface. A strip of dollar store rubberized shelf liner underneath the mat solved that problem.
Here's some of the fabric I was cutting for a new project today. Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. I love it!
I've got a mess in the sewing room again. We seem to be playing musical chairs with the furniture. The new cutting table meant I had to move the old sewing machine again, which meant moving this, that, and the other thing as well.
Hopefully, it'll all come together eventually.
