Hello to all my friends I know it has been a while ,but I have been real busy and I just what to tell you about my newest finds ,first of all can you believe someone through out this beautifull wood rocking chair , I had one just like it when I was living in California . I remember rocking by first born in it and when I saw it by the trash bins as I was arriving to by shop I parked and swooped it up before someone else would.
Today is Sunday so I came to the shop and took it out and started working on stripping the old paint on it ,someone had painted it a couple of times so I have alot of work to do .
And just this morning on my way to the shop I found this real nice case I belieave it was filled with a flatware set and they through it out ,it is perfect to store my sewing stuff like I am sure I can fill it with all sorts of things ,I think I will paint it or decopouge it ,I am still thinking .
And a while back I found this little table with a magazine rack on the bottom ,it needs to be repaired also ,the table top needs to be attached which is easy for me to do I think of myself as bieng pretty handy with things .
The photo is not so good, I am sanding the table while in the store , it will be pretty when completed.
I haven't ever mentioned it ,but I live right by a huge mall ,just a 5 min. walk so I go there alot when we are not open on Monday and Wednesday evenings ,so when I have time I go for a walk and look around . There is a store there called Zara Home and they have some real cute childrens bed sheets and it was the end of season sale and I got some real nice pieces for only 1.99 per sheet ,so I got some to use for quilting since pretty prints are hard to find over here I was really pleased to get these at such a good price.
And on the quilting front I started a 1/4 circle pattern and I picked it up and worked on it for a while,I just like to float around my projects ,and I do get bored easily so that is why I have so many ufo's.
If you read my last post I was doing some potholders and I haven't stopped really... I just can't seem to stop making them they are so much fun to do and I have given some away and making more as long as I have those batting strips in my stash ,but I think I am almost done . Well friends that is what I have been up to these last 3 weeks time goes by so fast , spring is comming and I will be going downtown to the fleamarket one of these Sundays I haven't been down since last summer can you believe it !! . I wish all of you a nice Sunday and plenty of sewing fun in your spare time. xoxo Theodora
