Holy moly, do you think 6 months is a long enough time between blog posts? So much has happened in the last 6 months. Lots of emotional ups and downs that I really don't want to get into, but things have seemed to stabilize. So many projects! Pics or it didn't happen though! Let me go take pics around my house...brb...
Ok, photo shoot over. The 1st project is a rocking chair that was sanded down, re-painted and the seat re-covered. I love the toile fabric that I used for the seat. So cute :)
The 2nd thing is not necessarily a project, although I might clean it up some. I actually found this on an antique mall browse. It's a Singer sewing machine built in 1924. That bar thing coming out of it is what you use to make it sew instead of a foot pedal like what is used now. It is in great working condition and has the cover and key with it.
I have been doing some knitting. Not much, but there's some. I was working on the February Lady Sweater and had gotten through the yoke when the worst thing ever happen. The new puppy ATE my project! No no, not only did she eat my Dream in Color Classy yarn, she also ate through my Addi Turbo's!!! Off to the pound she went! No, I'm kidding, she didn't go to the pound, but I didn't talk to her for a couple hours...ok maybe just one. I'm a sucker for those damn dogs.
One project that was actually finished though was the Pinwheel Blanket. It still needs to be blocked, but the knitting part is done. It's made for a friend's cousin's baby who will be here in the next month or two. I should get on that blocking...
And the last project that is actually being worked on is a kids rocking chair. I have sanded it down and started painting it, but I ran out of paint so it is on hold til I get more. I think I'm going to paint the whole thing white then paint some kind of design on the seat. Not sure what yet though.
That's pretty much it for what's going on around the house right now. Well, I do have a love life and was accepted into the Paul Mitchell cosmetology school, but I'll leave those things for another post.
Make it, don't fake it
