    Roseanne – what a FANTASTIC way to keep plastics out of the garbage AND put them to good use! Always enjoy the pictures of the kids. We had something like that tunnel when our kids were little – it became many things like a space ship, a tent in the forest … Kids and their imaginations!

  2. Keeping the pedal from traveling is a good thing. I may have to get me some of that.
    Besties are a joy in our lives for sure. Have a great week!

    Colt’s expressions crack me up…especially at the last shot there…those 3 sure do make my week! I found 1 son enough work, 10 children, I don’t know Addison! And Dominic can come Swifter here anytime! What a blessing to have those 3 near… And I tend to use the shelf liner to open bottles I can’t crack open with my bare hand. I didn’t think about using it for gloves on a quilt…but I’m deathly afraid of doing my own quilting anyway. I know my limits.

    That shelf lining stuff is so good for so many things!! I like my gloves, but that’s a great idea for quilting.

    Hi Roseanne,
    The recycled plastic benches are a fantastic idea!!!
    Love the pic of Sue … so happy!
    the littles are cute, as always!
    I’ve used the shelf liner thing for quilting … it’s nice in the summer when it’s too hot to wear gloves to quilt … but I tend to frequently loose the squares I have for quilting. Luckily, they’ve never been sewn into the back of a quilt … yet!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

  6. Isn’t that neat – making plastic into park benches?! Love that! Looks like Sue did a great job getting that piece of fabric out of the way. Hope she didn’t mind you snapping that picture of her, lol! I love the shelf liner idea for quilting – I’ve used that stuff, but not that way. Cute Colt in his tunnel! What fun! And babies and swiffering – the best!

    Shelf lines is awesome, “women’s answer to duct tape”. The littles are so sweet, Love the ball tunnel. Look how fabulous Sue is in getting stuff worked out! Great likes as usual. 10 Babies….OMG I hope she doesn’t decide to be the mother of decuplets….

  8. Another great list Roseanne filled with so much love. That park bench is wonderful! The shelf liner does work if you aren’t going too fast. I admit to sewing it in to my seam once. 🥴

    Must try shelf liner idea… thank you. May I ask if making a tie quilt what batting you could suggest. thank you for any suggestions and for great idea to try. I’m new to “trying” to quilt .. thank you again.

    Lots of great loves this week. I like that bench idea, too. Imagine, they could order 9 benches! Colt looks adorable in the tunnel. I have used a lot of that shelf liner to line shelves in the 5th wheel so things wouldn’t move around while traveling, but I’ve never used it for other things. That’s a good idea. I don’t quilt on my small machines, but if I did, I’d jump on that. Sue sounds like a problem solver!

    thank you for standing strong today and sharing your list

    I LVOE that recycled bench idea! Holy moly, though, 10,000#??? Where on earth did they store it all? And that picture of Addison with here babies and her hair all combed and grown up looking! A sign of things to come perhaps? Happy Thursday friend – oh and it is so nice to see pictures of Sue!

  13. Love the shelf liner tip, and will look forward to your assessment. Sue looks great in the headband! and yes, it will keep your ears warm…very important. Love the kiddos – tunnels and Swiffers!

    Shelf liner is a very handy tool!! I use it for jar openers! I’ve never used it for quilting on the domestic, but sounds like a good plan to try next time I quilt a small project. Great pics of the little loves!

  15. Here’s another use for shelf liner – cut a small piece about 2″ square. Place it between your block and your ruler when squaring. It holds the ruler stable so it doesn’t shift when you cut. I picked up that tidbit in a quilt class a few years ago. Hadn’t thought to use it for free motion, but I’ll bet it would work. Nice to see the littles – I like that quilt in the background of the Olaf photo 🙂

    What adorable faces! I love Colt in his tunnel.

  17. nanamickie says:

    I actually use that shelf liner fabric (or whatever it is) to open tough jars lids. Seeing the kids today made my day, especially that angelic shot!!! Hugs!

  18. I have never actually used shelf liner as shelf liner. It has many other uses!

  19. txquiltgal says:

    Love the shelf liner ideas! Lol on the 10 babies that Addison has. 😀

  20. Laura says:

    I have heard of using shelf liner instead of gloves, but haven’t tried it. I’ll wait for your assessment. 🙂

    Love the recycled plastic bench idea!
