I have a remodeling plan for the main floor of the house, so I put a bit of it in motion these past few days by painting the DR, the wall shelf, and the table. One wall was dark paneling, so I'm loving the big change. Had a yen to get a white tree and spent two hours fluffing up those branches and assembling it. Oops the light strands are green so that looks awful. I have a lead that Big Lots has white strand lights so it's off to there at 8am, then must work again today at the LQS. Rembrandt is climbing on the tree, knocking down the branches, so I cannot put decorations on the tree. There's a squirt gun at Big Lots with Rembrandt's name on it:
I got several dropcloths at Home Depot, which I noticed all the best Shabby Chic decorators are doing, and turned them into day bed covers, bolster covers, tablecloth, and temporary curtains (I have a more permanent plan for the sliding glass doors).
Next to an old Christmas card that I drew many years ago is the Primitive Gatherings Primitive Muslin FQ giveaway I won from Tara of Sew Unique Creations! Tara even threw in some heavenly reproduction FQs that go beautifully with the Primitive Muslins. The Muslins are pure heaven and I can't wait to make something with them. Thank you, Tara!!
