I’ve been giving my guest room a long overdue shakedown. Mostly because the portable crib that I had to have to make Sam, Aaron, and *ABBI’S* visits easier :) needed to fit in that room. Ignore the out-of-date and not-really-coordinating wallpaper border and sadly-still-in-need-of-repainting walls — that’s for AFTER the holidays!
You know how that kind of room starts being a
dumping ground collection center for all the items that need to find a home, or need to be taken upstairs, or need to be taken to donations, or… yeah. Well, it took me about 3 hours over a 15-hour day to get that room sorted out and rearranged. Gotta take care of my back and joints — I’m getting old, ya know! It was pretty tough to cram those 3 hours of work into that 15-hour day LOL
Then, of course, all the things that got evicted had to be dealt with. We won’t go there except to say two more rooms now have to be rearranged.
So I thought I’d use one of my What’s Up Wednesday posts to show you the things that I’ve made for that room during the past few years. Just bits and pieces, but I like it all!
And there’s still a stack of a good 30-ish pieces of fabric in teals, grays, browns and tans and creams to make a scrappy quilt out of.
You’ll see that project when the time comes!
Just one project left for the right-now, and that’s making a sheet (pillow sham style — you know how the back of a pillow sham works) for the flimsy portable crib so-called-mattress. Since that needs to be done by Friday and I just picked up the fabric(s) *innocent whistling* today, you’ll probably see it on Friday!
Almost ready for guests!
