Ya know I was feeling pretty darn good about being ahead of the ole ball game when it came to my spring cleaning! But that good feeling about "being ahead" sorta dwindled, once I took a gander at the spare bedroom!
For no other reason, than, I'm just this way about things........ I have grouped my stuff...I'm happy that I only have THREE GROUPS to be honest! LOL!
This pile of primed pine is a shelf! LOL...I found this up on another shelf! It needs PUT TOGETHER and then distressed!
Unfinished stitchery Unfinished counted cross stitch-aka-my nemesis!
This is a baby blanket cross stitch, it's huge...well not huge, but rather large for a cross stitch project....it's all done as far as the cross stitching goes, but I still need to get a back on it and an edge around it! I started it for my nephew, before he was born, planned on giving it to him after he arrived-LOL-he turned 10 in Sept! :) That's 10 as in Years-not months! This would be my OLDEST unfinished project!! Can anyone out there beat that?? Or will anyone out there, besides me....admit to having an UFP that old??
Group #2 is my "re-do" stuff!
Quilt Rack, some scones/candles, little wooden chair, tissue holder, stack of boxes to recover, More boxes and some jars to re-do with labels
Finally I have Group # 3...this is my 'just stuff ' pile! :)
I found these old oval wood frames ....and some old vintage postal cards (the cards I had put up because I don't know what do with them, they are enclosed in glass and leaded).
I have quite a few more, I just haven't come across where I put the other ones! Here's the back of one of 'em...some of them are really old....
I have this handmade Amish doll too, I am going to stain/age her body and
I would really like to change her clothes...anyone of you wonderfully talented seamstresses out there think you could make and sell me a little prim prairie outfit for her?? Please??? Anyone???
I would really like to give her a new look and re-do that little wooden chair and sit her on that!!
And lastly-here's what I have been working on in the evenings!
LOL-Yep-I started another counted cross stitch!! What was I thinking?
So, that's what I have been up to since my last post! :) I am not goin to say "stay tuned" to see the re-do's...lol...cuz heaven only knows when they will get done! I really do hope to finish my cross stitch tho!!
Thanks for stoppin by-Enjoy your day!
