Thank you for all your kind words on my panic post. I've calmed down, turned off the darn word verification and after sleeping most of Saturday - am feeling a bit more human.
So, onto fun things.
I've wanted to try felting and got a great book on felted purses. I went to Michaels, and for very few dollars - got 100% wool in two green colors. I ended up with two pieces of knitting - took no time to do
The problem with this book is that it gives very little instruction on how to assemble this purse. It says 'sew them together"...huh? Anyway, I finally figured it out, sewed them together and felted in the washing machine. In the end they weren't perfect, but good enough for a first try. The two pieces have to be exactly the same size (which they weren't) , and the two colors felted differently. If I was doing this again, I think I'd sew them together after the felting. Doesn't matter, I'm happy with the one I did.
One of the things I've always loved to do is to refinish furniture. When I was with some friends a few weeks ago, I bought a little ratty old table - it's small - almost child sized, that could be used as a side table or any little handy table.
It was easy to refinish - only took me an afternoon. I also didn't obsess about the tiny little areas in the legs, so they stayed a bit dark. But it came out nice, I think it's maple. I'm just buffing it with wax, and then am not sure what I'll do with it.
But it's so cute, I'll find a place for it somewhere. I love the little side things that fold up - it's like a miniature dining room table. I could just see 4 mini kid sized chairs, and fancy little place settings on this table.
I hope you had a lovely weekend, got caught up on sleep and good times.
