What I’ve Been Up to and Nicholas Won!

Nicholas won and I’m such a proud grammy , look at the cute button Danice of Blessed Holidays and Baby”s Blog made me, isn’t it cute, I love how she put Nicholas in the baby carriage too! Thank you Gina, Debbie, Martina, Debbie Do, Gail, Diana and Mary for taking the time to vote for him♥ Danice is also sending the cutest picture frame with his name on it, I can’t wait to see it! Stop over at Danice’s blog and follow her she has the Linky Follower on her sidebar♥

I’ve been just trying to get some things done around here, it seems every room needs something done, mostly painting trim which is my least favorite thing to do. So I did a little crafting in stead and made this pillow, did I sew it NO just used this handy stuff from JoAnn’s Fabric. Neat stuff and worked really well I was surprised actually.
I had this kitchen towel from Target for months and didn’t know what I was going to do with it so I stuck it in the cupboard. I found a small pillow form at GW and figured I’d give it a try. It turned out so cute I think, the directions on the fabric fusion said to pin after gluing until it’s dry so this picture is still with the pins in it.
Looks good on the chair I found along side of the road.
As you can see it dusk outside so the pictures aren’t the greatest but will give you an idea. Mr. K finally, finally put my curtain rods and curtains up they are the Shabby Chic ones from Target that I’ve had for almost a year still in the package, come April and the rods will be a year old in July.LOL
You don’t know how many times I’ve been tempted to do this myself but I just knew it would be a disaster so I waited and waited!  This is the guestroom and as you can see the trim in here is just waiting for some white paint…Gee, I just noticed the drill on top.
I’m thinking that painting the kitchen really took the omph out of us.LOL
They do look pretty though don’t you think?
Now maybe Saturday we can do the other bedroom, I won’t hold my breath though on that one!
One more thing and then I’ll let you go, if you have joined the Linky Followers on my sidebar and haven’t left a comment telling me it’s so very hard to follow you back which I really want to do, let me know if you have and I’ll follow you right back OK?

Very pretty Rondell. You know how many times I went to Target looking for that towel. I about gave up and forgot about it, TIL now:) Everything looks great. Have fun painting.

Congrats, Nicholas!!! :D I love what you did with the towel. I have the same one from Target, but I use my dish towels all the I don't sew!

You're right about that feeling where every room in the house needs something done... for me, it comes from being locked up all winter and staring at everything! andrea@townandprairie

Debbie said...

Your no sew pillow is perfect on your side of the road chair, Rondell. Years ago we would have made fun of people picking up stuff from the side of the look at us!!!LOL
I actually drive around in the summer looking for sad is that??!!
Your curtains look so much nicer on the window instead of in the package. You are lucky it only took your hubs a year to hang the rods.
Enjoy your weekend!
