It’s hard to believe we’re halfway through the year already. It’s just flown by, hasn’t it!!
With the Independence Day weekend here in the States, and Canada Day in, uh, Canada, it’s going to be a nice long weekend. I made a long list of things I want to accomplish over the weekend, and I know I will get a lot of satisfaction if I can tick even half of them off.
Here are a couple of them:
- Slipcover chair. I have a nice little arm chair in the guest room that has been faded a lot by the sun, so one of my projects is to make a slip-cover for it. Hell, if I can do a whole long sofa, the chair ought to be a zip. I’ll take some before and after pix. I am thinking of doing it in a blue linen that I have, even though I hate working with linen because it’s slippery.
- A wedding. A good friend is getting married on Saturday. We’ll be right on the water, and it
shouldwill be a load of fun!
- Dinners – my two sisters and their husbands are coming over for a wee cook-out. Let’s just hope I can figure out how the grill works. Had to put the chicken skewers in the oven for a dinner earlier this week.
- Add things to my Etsy shop, which has been dreadfully neglected these past few months. Now that I am all settled in, I have found my stash of china pieces, silver pots and jugs and silverware. I also have some great new fabrics, including gorgeous Chinoiseries and some Lilly Pulitzers and I am going to whip up some pillows. If there’s anything particular you’d like, do let me know!
