The weather has been cold and wet. So, since walking in The Woods was not really a good option, I took on several short and fun projects. One of these came up after we had the carpets cleaned and I was touring the house pulling out all those small squares of Styrofoam used to protect furniture legs from wet carpet. Ah! An opportunity! They are about 2 inches square and the perfect size to carve and make stamps. Here are three of them (I have about forty!) quickly carved and some test stamping done.
Then, while wandering the aisles at JoAnn's Fabrics I picked up 6 yards of cheesecloth. By simply putting sewing pins in the wall above the window I have some funky drapes for my studio and the light still comes through. ( No, it's not just for Halloween.)
I dug through my fabric stash and found a large piece of knit fabric, just enough to make slip covers for my two file cabinets. I only get into the paper files about once a month so covering the files is not going to be a problem. Now, they look like fun end tables! Finally, I decided to make place mats for the dining table. A tablecloth covered it up and I like looking at the top made from very old barn wood. The rain has stopped so today we are going to a local cider and apple festival. I will take photos to share!
