wouldn’t say it’s sorted, but there’re the embroidery hoops, found my pinking scissors… uh-oh, where’s the box of thread??

Have found almost all my sewing gear, and am making plans for a small project–a couple of blankets need re-sizing.

According to the Internet, these are standard mattress sizes:

                                       US                     Europe
Twin (Single)        39×75 inches         36×79 inches
Full (Double)        54×75 inches         55×79 inches
Queen                   60×80 inches         63×79 inches
King                      76×80 inches         71×79 inches

America “standard” sizes for blankets:

Twin: 66 by 90 inches
Double: 80 by 90 inches
Queen: 90 by 90 to 100 inches
King: 108 by 90 to 100 inches

I thought it interesting that both the mattress sizes and blanket sizes were included.  Didn’t realize there was such variation in length in the larger sizes, either.

Now I just have to locate all that thread…


love these gerbers!

I found the thread — kept looking at the top photo, and finally realized why.  I didn’t have that on my sewing table before the move!  In the frenzy of last minute packing, I gathered up all the odds & ends on the table, including my box of threads, and everything went into that top box.  Gee – forgot to look and see if the Folkwear Armistice blouse pattern is there…  One more thing to hunt down!

But sewing will follow!
