We normally have very busy Wednesday's but today was extra busy because we added a shopping trip to the schedule!
I found out that an outlet store near here had one last 'tall activity' table on clearance and all their clearance was 1/2 price. The Dreamer has been wanting an activity table, but she is getting tall for a normal one, so I was excited to find that Pottery Barn Kids sells a tall table. We made a quick trip - on a lovely cold 'blue sky' day for a drive to the outlet mall and it was still there - a bit scratched, yes, but nothing that can't be fixed and for 1/3 of the original price - well, she is one happy Dreamer! My mom is still here and she is a fearless driver - with a lead foot! So we got there quickly and it was just a bit of a crunch to get dinner eaten before AWANA, but we made it!
I also found some wonderful inexpensive embroidered pillow shams that go so well with our duvet cover and bedroom fabrics - slowly I am assembling the 'ingredients' for an all out assault on our bedroom - the last room in the house to be tackled! The fabric is waiting to be made into curtains, pillows, shams and trim for some bath towels! I have silk flowers for a heart shaped wreath for over our bed and the drapery hardware just needs to be put up! I even have a discount store wholecloth cotton quilt in an accent colour to make into a reading pillow and accent pillows, so I have no excuse not to get at this and make our bedroom a warm and inviting haven!
The only things I lack are TIME and ENERGY! Everything is coming together, so I hope to get at it sooner rather than later - the rest of our house will just have to suffer neglect and I'll closet myself in the sewing corner and not come up for air until it is done!
