I did finish my Rabbit rug yesterday and even managed to get it steamed. I am so happy with this rug, I cannot even begin to tell you. It is what I have seen in my mind and now I can move on to something else.
This summer I plan on refinishing all of the vanities in all of the bathrooms. I have been experimenting on small wood projects to get in the practice. That is why you are seeing the table project and now these small wood projects. I don't normally like painting, but I am making myself like it. Just like gardening. I never really liked it until I made myself like it. The thing they have in common is I don't like to get my hands dirty. I have learned to love gardening and painting, I just have to push through it. Because I am really very lazy.
Here is one of the small wood projects I did with Ron's help last night. I am not a very good measurer. So he has to help me. I like to mainly eyeball things.
My last few projects. I have two washboards. One a friend gave me and one I bought in an antique store. I wanted them so I could show my counted cross stitch things I work on all of the time. I thought I would just use magnets. The wash board part isn't metal that anything will stick to. So my washboards have just sat there as washboards. Then I saw this picture. So simple. A string and close pins. I didn't even know if Michael's sold clothespins. They do! In every color you can imagine and in sizes I never thought about in my life. Now I have a way to show my cross stitch things without messing up my wash boards. You know in case I ever have to use them for real. So here they are. One in on the fireplace and one is in my laundry room.

That is what I have been doing. I wake up every morning so excited about projects. Now I am going to finish His Eye is on the Sparrow. I can't wait.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I really appreciate it.

Is not worth a fly."
