Good Sunday afternoon everyone!!...been fiddle farting around the homestead today..so I decided to drag out my halloween stuff..so here these bins will sit till tomorrow or some time this week..got the large stuff out and put on the porch...but will wait to show when its all done..:)
Yesterday I was busy embroidering out some new designs that I got from Denise of Pioneer loft I can't show you what I am making as they are for swaps and tradings that I am doing..and I decided to take a break and do some tweaking..I decided since it is just the 2 of us..why have the chairs all around the table taking up space...so here is how it looks now with just the 2 chairs..
here is where I put one of them..see the 4 tier metal rack with the 4 baskets..this is its home now..it used to be where the other chair is now shown below..
see the yellow step stool..it used to be by the vanity in the 2nd photo..but the wrought iron stand is there now..I do like it better now..much easier to manuever around the dining room..
in the midst of my decorating and watching a movie yesterday..the postal girl left me a package that I knew was coming..this is a swap I did with Laurie of Cat Haven Crafts.. I wanted some wool as she does some awesome wool crafts..We did a swap earlier and I got one of her kittys that looks like her header and I love it..she does beautiful needle work..so I wanted some of her lovely wool to make my own works of art..I want to use this wool to make my chair covers for my new dining room chairs..just got to decide what designs I want to do..This will be nice to do while watching tv at night..:>)
I have a nice variety to choose from..and it smelled so good in the box..;) and she has them all nicely labeled for me..I am sending her stuff hopefully out tomorrow..she knows of two things she is getting but the other 2 are surprises...and we all love surprises..I am also doing another swap with one of my fellow OFGer's and getting 2 wonderful "blocks" one says Autumn and the U's are leaves and one for thanksgiving that says give Thanks with a cute pumpkin in between th words.:) I can't wait to get these...Well that is it for me today..going to do some more sewing and getting some stuff done to mail off to folks..I hope your day was a glorious one..it really feels like fall here..a bit overcast..not cold though..just kind of dreary out...and it looks like maybe showers in the forecast for tomorrow..but nothing major..I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead..will be back when the house is decked out for halloween.;)
