Checking things off the "To Do" List

I was able to finish the edge of the Fall Rug the other day. Finally got around to taking a picture I am happy with the way it turned out. I tried the finishing technique that I learned on a tutorial on . I think it would have turned out better if I wasn't rushing. None the less it is finished and I am already thinking of two new adventures. I am hoping to get my new frame the beginning of next week.
I also took a picture of my Friday Night Sew in project that I finished quite some time ago. I still don't know where I am going to hang it in my home. I might just settle for letting it hang on the side of basket til I can think of a good spot.

This is a trash find from a lonnnnggg time ago. I had always planned on painting it but never got around to it. You know how that goes, right? Well I got it painted then I thought it would look neat to have a mane and tail so I got out my rug hooking strips that I had cut up already and voila a cute little horsey. I think it might look cool if I made a rug that looks like a blanket and put it on the seat. I know I have seen pics with rocking horses before and thought they looked cool. Unfortunately, right now I can't think of how to decorate my house with one. lol. I had always planned on sitting it out on my front porch. Who knows. If I find a cute spot for it I will take an after pic.

A few More TTMMS(things that make me smile)

What do you think of the new chair? Larry found it on the curb. We haven't done anything to it. I just noticed that I still need to get some dust between the spindles. Surprise, surprise. I also found some pretty flowers at the thrift store last week and got them put in the basket. I put it on the door to our shed. I forgot to take an after pic. Maybe tomorrow.
What a sweetheart. I just love this girl! She was enjoying the wonderful weather.

She loves to be up as high as she can. I am so glad we rescued her from a shelter. Her time was running out. I can't imagine what our home would be like without her. She provides me with a steady dose of smiles. Thanks for listening to my random thoughts. Nite!

Organization needed!

I have been lacking on my organizational skills for a while now. The goal is to work on this a little at a time. Sooo I have been working on winding up my floss. Here is the before and the after.

I know this might not seem like much to some. But I am excited about my baby step. I figure if I tackle the various areas in my home that need this alittle at a time, the process might not be as painful as it could be. I think my next step needs to be with my silk flowers. Hope you have a good nite.
