I finally finished the bookcase painting. There's another bookcase but the grands are coming in July so I will postpone and just get right to the cleaning and the readying! Here's the bookcase......I can see things so much better with the light color and the dust won't show so easily....always a plus! This is going to be my sewing/fabric book case and the other will be yarn. That's all the executive decisions I've made so far........
In starting to put things back and going through and organizing. I found several projects that were 1/2 way done and that got buried somehow.....how could that happen...lol?
There was a little Christmas tree quilt I started, a crochet hook holder, and remember the crocheted rag rug? I am going to have a container with these HFO's (half finished objects) and I will hopefully, force myself to complete one before starting anything else....of course, unless it is a gift for someone.
I've been boxing up more items for the thrift store and will be dropping it all off the next time I have a grocery pickup.
I made some lemon squares yesterday and I weeded the trough out back. I get up at 4:00 a.m and turn out the lights about 8 or 8:30p.m. I actually quit "working" about 5:00 p.m. then I knit, crochet, watch t.v. and then read.....that's my schedule and I'm sticking to it!
I also made plans for gift giving for the year ahead and downloaded some patterns from my friend, Helen Phillips Etsy shop. She has cross stitch and quilting patterns and other cute little gifty patterns. She has a blog too. Her patterns are so reasonable and you download so no shipping! She makes adorable items....I just wish she'd include the beautiful fabrics she uses! LOL! Check her out at Helen Phillips on Etsy. She does have a blog too.
What have you been up to? By the way..............
