I had such a great day yesterday. Terry was off fishing with a buddy, and I was at my own devices. I spent most of the day in my studio, sewing.
Below you will see the first two coasters I made using old CDs and one inch wide strips of fabric.
Here's a picture of my studio. It was almost neat and tidy at the point of this shot, but oh, Lordy, you should see it now! I have so many projects in process. I always have an Audio book to listen to as I work away.
We recently painted the bathroom, and I refinished the small set of drawers I keep in there. I repainted it, and decoupaged pieces of fabric to the front of the drawers. Then, I made my first Quilt As You Go projects. I can't believe I did not know of this method before. Well, I knew of it, but had never tried it. It's so nice and easy for a quick project. I made toppers for the toilet, the dresser, and yesterday I made one for the countertop that runs on top of both. We have these hideous pinkish mauve countertops in both the bathroom and kitchen, but are not in a position to replace them just yet, so if I can cover them up, I feel better.
In addition to thrift store shopping, I also love consignment stores. I have been taking my clothes to one for quite some time and have lots of credit accumulated there. They had a huge sale a few weeks ago and I bought these two Fossil bags. I just couldn't choose!
Oh, I forgot. Yesterday I also moved a Red Twig Dogwood to a new location and planted the three Daylily bulbs that I bought at the Garden Show. Now I have to figure out where to plant the Stargazer Lillies. Yes, we have had some beautiful weather, but I don't want to dig up sod to make new beds just yet. I have to move all of the blueberry bushes, but that will involve extending one of the beds a good two feet, which means two feet by 15 feet of sod. NOT looking forward to that. Maybe I will wait until after they produce and the sod is not so heavy with moisture.
