Except for some hand quilting while watching FoodTV, I didn't sew a thing this weekend. I spent all my time trying to get the living room and the dining room done. (It seems like I used to be able to do this stuff a LOT faster!) The sofas were moved to even out the sunlight distribution. With that big window, I have to move them all the time so they don't fade.
I'd forgotten how much time and "stuff" it takes to fill and accessorize the tops of three china cabinets. There is one china cabinet here. It still needs a few items on the top.
This wooden box used to be on the top.
I hauled up a table from the basement and layered it with a green tablecloth tucked under on the bottom and a crocheted topper that my Mom made. It seemed like a good spot for the box, which holds Romantic Home magazines.
The other two china cabinets are at the opposite end. You've seen both of them in my posts this past week. The one on the far end still needs attention paid to the shelf in the middle.
I am at a loss for the moment on what I will find to finish off this room. I will have to take a trip down to the basement after work tonight and see what jumps out at me. I know I have a tiny little miniature quilt rack. I found a mini quilt in one of the china cabinets, so I will use that behind the sofa.
What I need to do is plop down on that sofa near the box of Romantic Home magazines and spend an hour leafing through for ideas.
Geez, Jan. 15 already. Half the month is gone!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
