Suddenly Sunday afternoon is almost over and I still have tons of projects that I wanted to finish. I need another day in my weekend--my nails need to be done, I wanted to wash and style my hair (it's always best if I wash it the day before I have to go to work), I should hem a pair of pants I bought last week, and I have done no cleaning except for the Friday PM dusting with the new orange mitt... well, I guess I shoved the vacuum around each room, but that's about it. I did minimal cooking.....I did change and wash the bedding....but where did the rest of the weekend go?
I guess I spent most of it sewing. Remember my plan to sew quilts to frame for this empty hallway?
This weekend I finally got him to hang something in this hallway. I must have caught him in a weak moment, because he hung 8 pictures down this hallway! They are all lighthouses in black frames (I used to have them in my living room before the remodel).
I do really like these lighthouses. I have visited many of them because they are all in Michigan.
After making quilts to frame all weekend, I decided that it was just too much hassle to get these in a frame and hung on a wall. I was very disappointed to realize that the biggest quilt in the back was too thick to fit in the frame after I added batting and quilted it.
When I went down to the basement to wash the bed linen, I noticed the stack of lighthouses pics with black frames. I was already thinking the framed quilt idea was not going to happen, so I brought a couple of the lighthouses upstairs to see if they would look good down the hallway. I decided they would work much better than quilts that I had to make and then fit into frames.
I think this is how I got DH to hang the lighthouses. I showed him this quilt and I said, "It's either 8 quilts in this color scheme or the lighthouses. I think the lighthouses will look better in the hallway." I guess he agreed. LOL.
