Project Day

Yesterday it was very, very windy out here on Sidewinder Road.  It definitely was a “stay inside” kind of day.  So I took advantage of this confinement to take on a couple of projects I’ve wanted to do.

First was recovering a small foot stool I bought at a consignment store in Pahrump.  Since we moved around the furniture putting the couch along the side wall and the chairs in the back, I find I’m still sitting in front of the TV now on the couch.  That’s mostly because the re-done table is there and have a place to put things.  Anyway, I need a foot stool to old my computer on my lap more comfortably.  The stool I bought had a flowered tapestry fabric on it that didn’t fit our decor, so here’s what we did yesterday.


With that done on went on to sewing up a new valance for the bathroom.  What we had was multi-colored flowers on a purple background.  Yes, I know, I like purple but this belonged in a grandmother’s house….well, OK, I AM a grandmother, but this didn’t belong in THIS grandmother’s house.  So here is what I came up with.

Yup, I used the same fabric that I used on the foot stool.  So that what I did on a windy day….what did you do?

Remember, you are loved.
