So last night I began the Great Unfinished Project Clean-Up (known from here on out as GUPCU). You can see a bunch of them here and here. But I must confess, I didn't finish any of those, I finished ones I've started since then! Haha!
And I've tried this before--finishing stuff--but something always happens. I get an irresistable urge to organize. The lighting is wrong, the glue is dried up, I'm out of white thread, the prom dress needs hemmed, etc, etc, etc.....
I started small for GUPCU. One evening at my friend Sue's house, I saw that she had a cute basket filled with balls of ribbon. Upon closer inspection, my crafty queen friend, Laura and I determined that these were probably styrofoam balls wound with ribbon.
"We could make these!" So I bought styrofoam balls and some cute ribbon the next time I was at Wal-Mart and started a few of these. And then discovered I needed more ribbon and balls and wouldn't upholstery tacks look cute on them? So I put them in a plastic bin and went on my merry way! But I finished them last night!
SAY YES! By the way, I like tarnish along with chippy and worn, so don't be hating my candlesticks, ok?
Do you like Dollar Tree as much as we do? For the price, what's not to love? Ok, so the smell in there is weird. And most everything is made in China. And the wrapping paper is thin--but hey, it's only one dollar! And there's lots of great stuff in there! You've got to keep going back, cause you never know what you'll find!
Ta-Da! A colorful rag runner for my laundry room!
I also finished (at last) the quilt top I started way back in February. All has been finished except the borders for months--of course! I'll post a picture when I get it quilted--next year!
Well, I'm gonna go and work on some more stuff--decoupage a bracelet, finish another wreath, embroider some pillow cases, try to recall that great idea I had for some solid feedsacks my mom gave me.......
Hahahahahaha! Heeheeheehee! Hohohohohoho!
