I've been gone from blogland for a bit, no idea why. For the last week I've kind of felt like I was on vacation without leaving home! The weather was dry, cool (well not hot as hades anyway) and clear. The kind of weather I just want to sit and read while the soft breezes blow over me, so basically that's what I did! Of course, I will now pay for it! House is a mess, yard work to be done etc, etc, etc. Today, I got up and went to work. I've put in a few stones in the retaining wall I started last July! It got too hot and then lost in the Kitchen redo. I finished up the bottom part of the second wall (photos coming I promise) and tomorrow I will work on the top walls.
I've begun prepping the ends of my old crib-hey the youngest is 26, it's old! I'm planning to convert the ends into a headboard for my room. I've looked and looked for a headboard (or even a bed although that would be a stretch-small room) and I can't find one that wouldn't over-power the room. So-o-o-. I've already sanded them and today I glued them together-currently clamped together! I need to go get a 1/4" dowel rod to fill some holes and then I'll paint them white. When finished I'll hang it on the wall as my bed is quite high. Again, photos soon!
I haven't turned on my sewing machine or picked up a needle in a week, sigh.
