OK let's try this again. I already had half of my post typed then I somehow stupidly deleted it. grrrr... This better not be any indication of how the rest of my day will go. So let's try this again.
I told you the other day that I was working on some new projects. I only completed one of them, but the other two aren't far behind. This first project are some painted boxes I finished. I can't tell you how long I've had these paper mache boxes. I just thought about something. This counts toward finishing another UFO. Woohoo!!! Anyway, I just couldn't decide how I wanted to do them. Well, after looking at Pinterest (I'm so addicted) I got some ideas. So here's my first projects... I have an issue with that top box's lid. It doesn't want to flatten out. I need to deal with that yet.
My unfinished projects.
My next project that I worked on while the above one was drying was this one. I took a piece of scrap linen like material and coffee/paint stained it. Then I used one of my new stencils from Folk Art From the Harbor. This one was actually a three step stencil, but I only used two. I'm thinking I'm going to put this in a frame, but then I've also considered making a pillow out of it. I just can't decide. This right here is why I have so many UFO's. I get to a point where I don't know how I want to finish it and set it aside. grrrr... I'm so addicted to redware and yellow ware can you tell? lol
Third project I stitched yesterday while at work. This here I have a ton of ideas for. I'd like to make a drum pinkeep, but I can't find directions on how to cut the circles for each end. I'm guessing it's the width of the roll plus 1/4" allowance??? I'm still thinking on that one. Of course then I thought what about a needle roll/kit, or a pillow tuck, or..... see what I mean I can't make a decision to save my life. lol I'm also deciding if I need a border around it. sheesh!!!!
This last picture is for Margie of Hungry Hook Primitives. She posted a picture of her old/new chandelier she redid. She asked if I would post a picture of mine because I told her I had done the same thing. Many of you will remember how ugly and shiny gold this once was. Then Steve roughed it up and re sprayed painted it. I just LOVE it!!! The flowers below are ones Steve bought me for Valentine's Day.
I have a few things I have to do this morning, but I'm hoping to work on the two projects and maybe get them finished up. I hope you have a great day!!!
