Long time no talk everyone. I have been working my last really long weekend. Let me tell you I am beat. I just finished up my 24 hour shift this morning and I haven't taken a nap yet. Oh no I have lots to do! We had our meeting with the board of DD this morning, which basically is coming down to budget cuts. My daughter is too high functioning for any assistance basically. We don't know for sure for 2-4 weeks, but it sounds as if she will fall through the cracks. But right now I am too uptight to go into depth about it. Many of you know how it feels to be helpless when it comes to someone you love. That is where I am right now. One glimmer of hope is my daughter said she'd like to volunteer at a nursing home. We happen to have one a few blocks away. We decided that we will go either Thursday or Friday to see if this is possible. It is a start right?
(sigh) alright... so I have decided where I want to put my chairs until I can put them into use with a table years down the line. Two chairs don't fit under my kitchen table side by side without hanging out in the walkway. I was hoping it would work but.... as we say in EMS adapt and overcome. I found different homes for all 4.
First, hanging two from my dining room peg rack. Someone also thought I should hang them upside down... I'm not so sure about that I kinda like to have the seat to decorate. For those who don't know years ago they would hang chairs from peg racks to get them up off the floor to avoid a cluttered look on the floor and for ease of cleaning when they were not in use.
Did you notice I used my baskets I just redid? I know it's too early for corn BUT I like them :)
Moving on I put one in my living room...
Lastly, this one isn't as exciting. My kitchen for now. As it stands we can only seat three people at my kitchen table because I have a bench on one side and a chair on the other. So, this one can get pulled up when necessary.
So now I just need to make some cushions for them. I'm thinking coffee stained osnaburg fabric... with some calico patches sewn on here and there.
I also wanted to show you I got one of the quilts finished. I am almost done with the other, but it'll take a few more days. Hind sight I should've used invisible thread to quilt it BUT dummy me had some and had never used it so I threw it away. See this is why it's good to be a hoarder!!! LOL. So I guess I will need to get more for future projects.
I also stained yet another basket I found at the Goodwill last week. I'm not sure I like it quite yet. I think it might need another coat of stain, but again $.79 can't beat that.
I have a few other things I want to get started on today or tomorrow. I'd really like to get my cheese boxes sanded and painted. But I also got some great new quilting patterns I want to get started on. Hmmmmm wonder which one will win out. lol
I'll be back tomorrow with pictures of the booth from when we redid it. I have a few more things I'd like to take out tomorrow if I have time. But first and foremost I have a much needed massage appointment. I am having a sudden increase in stress again that I'm not sure how I'm going to handle yet. The bank is coming after me for the difference in amount our foreclosed home sold for compared to what my ex owed. I got a phone call on Saturday for me to call the bank. I really don't want to declare bankruptcy. As I am slowly climbing out of debt and trying to repair my bad credit from my ex. But I sure can't afford that kind of money either. Besides I didn't live in the home he did when it went into foreclosure. We all know that if our name is on it we owe it. Grrrrrr...
Anyway, I will see you tomorrow as you all are my sanity.
