Busy-ness

I can't believe I haven't blogged in so long. Thanksgiving was terrific and very busy. It's just been hard to get motivated to get anything done. I have been working on this.... yep our office/craft/sewing room - hey how about multipurpose room or does that bring back too many grade school memories?

and this.... a runner that I made for a good friend. I used a yard and 1/2 for the center part. To make it longer for her. I think she'll love it. It has this great village all over it. You can go here for the tutorial to make one for yourself or a friend.
and this .... the carpenter made new shelves for the hutch while home over Thanksgiving. He also installed a new light in the multipurpose room. Love it. Got glass for my picture frames I found at my favorite thrift store. I put the kids' high school pictures in them. Kind of hard to see the new shelves in this picture. I had no shelf on the left side and half a shelf on the right side. I got enough board for him to make a new center shelf, not because it needed it but so it would match.

and a new tutorial. Hopefully I will post that Friday. I need to start my winter decorating soon or why bother. Hope everyone is doing great.

I'm glad to hear you had a nice Thanksgiving, Amanda. Your multi-purpose room :) is looking beautiful! Love the subtle touches of black here and there.
Things are going well here. Can you believe there are still leaves on the trees this time of year?!
Wishing you a great day!
Hugs,
Jo :)
