How I missed you all yesterday! While I don’t always publish a post every day, I feel a separation from you when I miss a day.
Are you busy preparing for Thanksgiving tomorrow? We had a little hick-up yesterday when a stomach virus entered our home. Ugh! A visit to the doctor, and it seems to be contained, thankfully. I got lots of house cleaning done yesterday while playing nurse. There’s that silver lining!
I love it when all the cleaning (and disinfecting!) is finished the day before most everyone arrives. Today will be all about cooking, greeting family and guests, watching the guys enjoy a clay shoot, and romping on the farm in our beautiful weather! I consider this a play day. 🙂
In my cleaning yesterday (and a little organizing, too), I made adjustments in the guest room where I’m working on new bedding, window treatments, a table skirt and a topper. We have so much to catch up on in that room! But, with the holidays upon us, it may have to wait until January.
This is the bed skirt I’ve completed. Here’s the tutorial for this gathered, banded skirt. The room is looking very Victorian.
On the wall across from the bed is this wall-mounted quilt rack. I found it in an antique booth for a very reasonable price. See? We don’t always have to do all the DIY work! 😉
It’s made from the side rail of a baby bed. The expert who made this quilt rack attached the short pieces to the rail with hinges.
As you can see, you simply screw these short pieces into the wall, and the rack hinges out as needed for the quilts.
You would have laughed hysterically if you watched my clown-like contortions while putting screws through the brackets into the wall! I had to hold the rail over my head and balance it while using both hands to hold the bracket and screw driver. Can you picture that? Are you laughing now at the thought? Ha!
When HH’s mom arrives tomorrow, I think she’ll be intrigued. She might even steal the idea since she has an old baby bed no longer in use.
Before I sign off, here’s another reminder to preview Craftsy’s classes – to prepare your list for Friday’s deals. It doesn’t cost us a thing to fill our cart! 🙂
These are a few classes you may want to consider. Over 900 classes will be under $20 beginning Friday. You cannot beat that!
I was serious about the sewing groups starting in January, and you’ll see those enrollments going live toward the end of December.
I’ll send you a reminder about Craftsy’s big sale on Friday morning.
Meanwhile, if I get really
bored industrious, I may post a Christmas tablescape tomorrow. I’m so excited for Christmas decorating this year. Two more days until my day to decorate, and I can hardly wait! Can you?
I’m sharing at Metamorphosis Monday.
