Guess I should think about replacing the two missing balusters too.
Two weeks after the floors, I am having the whole area painted. So I kind of have been living from one corner of the sofa in the family room. It leads to two things......a good way to clean out cabinets and closets and the desire to update some things. Been searching the Internet for 'looks' and did a bit of consignment shopping yesterday. I found what I thought might be a good coffee table but left the store without purchasing it........I mulled it around last night and decided the piece is multifunctional and if not used as a coffee table, it will work somewhere else. So I will be heading back to be at their doors when they open at noon with my fingers crossed that my hesitation is not my loss and no one bought it between 3 p.m. yesterday and noon today.
And I have been really trying to burn up the needle with Grace Mason. I am getting there. Pardon her wrinkles from my q-snaps.
I am alternating between stitching the motifs across the bottom with the over one initials. They are time consuming and what's better than stitching over one? We all know, ripping over one. Let's hope there is not too much of that in my future.
So glad I have been able to stick to my pledge to stitch on only one piece at a time and to stitch from stash. That's the temptation fellow stitchers....all the fabulous designs we see and trying to keep that resolve. I gently remind myself of my S.T.A.B.L.E. Stash and exactly how many projects are kitted up and just waiting for me to start.
Next up - work, summer, yard saling, my visit to the Downton Abbey exhibit at Winterthur.....yadda, yadda, yadda and now I am on my way outside to vacuum the pool, pull some weeds and enjoy the day AND to head back to the consignment store for the bench I saw and maybe the floor lamp too.
