We're off to Cedar Rapids, IA in the morning! My daughter is skating at the Midwestern & Pacific Synchronized ice skating competition. So, it's been a busy practice week! Needless to say, not much got done in the way of home projects. The big ones anyway!
I did manage to keep my nerves at bay with a few smaller projects though. And, well, I still feel like I accomplished something. Probably more so, because it is the simple things that continue to pile up? right?
I managed to make a table runner for the kitchen table. I didn't like ANY of the choices out there...so I made my own. With some left over 'cheapo' unbleached cotton fabric. Which I LOVE!!! The price at less than $3 a yard and the natural look it has! All I did was set it on the table, cut how long I wanted it, folded over the sides, and sewed a straight stitch. I left the ends untouched, but frayed the fabric a bit. I like how it turned out!
My next "easy peasy never got around to it" project was this photo frame. I love gathering frames, but seldom take the time to add MY pictures, so I spent a few hours adding my pics and then added the monogram in the middle. Not a hard project...just one I can check off now!
After this busy fun filled weekend in Iowa, I am looking forward to tackling some bigger projects!
Go KICKS Go!! (that's the name of our synchronized team)
