I am moving. The first order of business is to pack the Pyrex away. I have not seen my collection since I started collecting 2 years ago. I thought I have been collecting for over a year. Turns out its been 2 years in June. (yipee) I have been hiding Pyrex in every nook and cranny in the house that has space. My kitchen is more like a half wall than a full kitchen. Space is so limited that I resorted to hiding Pyrex all over the house. I really had no idea how much Pyrex I have purchased. I quickly found out. This is not all of my Pyrex. Not all of it would fit here and I am was too scared to put more out. I am still finding more each day in the house. I promise to take a better photo once I am all moved in and can display it properly.
This is the first piece that got me started. I saw it a few times before I purchased it. Then one day I had fear and panic set in. This is when Pyrexia hit me. I had this overwhelming get to the store and BUY it now panic feeling. I did. It was still there waiting for me. I said before that I $10.00 was the most I ever spent on Pyrex. Now I remember this is not true. This piece cost me $16.00. This is the most expensive piece I paid for in my collection. Worth every cent.
Plus I have fabric to match it. I am going to make a cozy for a dish. I need something fancy to carry my Pyrex dishes when I attend our crafty potluck dinner me and a few local crafty friends do once a month. Speaking of cozy, have you seen this? I really love love this. I wish wish to find this cozy. I am going to try to make one just like it. (*try*) I know there is a pattern for one in Stitch Magazine's Fall of 2009. It can be seen here. You have to purchase the magazine to get the free pattern. Which I did and have. I am sure you can order past issues. This is what the cover looks like. Do you have a cozy for your Pyrex?
