My productive weekend so far

Hi all,

Well it is Sunday. James comes home tomorrow afternoon and Mike will be home in a few hours. We are having a quiet steak dinner tonight just the 2 of us and probably walk our dog Strider to work off dinner. We have been on a diet for a while but it is slow progress because I don't exercise as much as I did like when I was in my 20's. After 30 I lost a lot of initiative in that respect.

Got a lot done this weekend as far as getting some serious crafting done, I surprised myself this weekend as well. I finished the coasters last night and yesterday as well I also finished the rustic type picture both of them are in plastic canvas. I put my tissue box holder on hold for a week because the pattern Shaker Hearts is a pattern I found in a book that I got from the library. I tried to renew the book today but was not able to so I picked that back up today so I can get that done and return the book to the library. Made decent progress on Shaker hearts. I am really liking it. This will go in my bedroom when done because I have our bedroom decorated in red anyway so I think this will go nicely in my room.

I finally got around to hanging up the curtains in James' room that I made. I love homespun fabric so that is what I used for his curtains the colors of the fabric are navy blue and tan very country looking. It is the same fabric that I used to make the curtains in the living room and kitchen and the bathroom. As you may tell I am partial to the color blue. I have a lot of blue in my living room.

If I get around to it tomorrow I want to hurry and put new fabric on our stools for the kitchen. I had gotten the stools for free to begin with so that is why the fabric on the seats right now is ripping. It should be a quick project.

I will finally post pics of my progress either tomorrow or Tuesday sometime of my very active weekend. Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.


  1. Wow Kay! You have gotten so much done this weekend! I am truely impressed. I cant wait to see the pictures.

  2. Thanks, I guess it does pay to have time to yourself to get things accomplished at times! I don't know about you but I usually find it hard to do everything I want to when my husband and son are home because they keep me busy with other things!
