Meanwhile, back here in the U.S., it was more cleaning and clearing events and I'm not talking about horse jumps! LOL!
This quilt was on it's way to the Thrift Store when I happened to stop by a friends. I unloaded her whole car into mine and saved her a trip! LOL!
It's too small for my bed so it must be a twin but it's okay for now but eventually it will be a chair cover. It's a store quilt, nothing handmade or handed down which makes it more comfortable to use it in whatever way I wish...tablecloth, chair cover, picnic blanket....whatever. It's colorful and I love it! I changed all the linens and started dusting and cleaning counter-clockwise around my bedroom.
Below is an appliqued tea towel that same friend made for me several years back for my birthday. I use tea towels as dresser scarves, curtains...you name it. The same goes for cloth napkins.
I washed windows and hung clean curtains....cloth napkins that I bought at a sale for cheap. The one thing I like about my Pella crank style windows is that the screens clip in and out from the inside and once I take the screen down and open the window full out, I can wash both sides of the window from inside the house! Pretty convenient and it's so convenient I tend to wash my windows more often than I ever have with other windows. In addition, I use Invisible Glass window cleaner....no streaks! I got those clip curtain rings at Target years ago and I use tension rods so no hardware to install and I can adjust the height depending on the cloth I am hanging....easy, peasy! I'm moving so I am not doing much permanent other than important stuff like the new roof, ac and furnace etc.
I have more to do but the catalog below came in the mail and I think I may need to take a break now and take a peek! LOL! Have you ever gotten this catalog? It's The Stitchery It is mostly cross stitch and needlepoint and embroidery but lovely, lovely things! They even have a few clothes and jewelry and now, paint-by-number. Paint-by-number paintings are really popular in vintage collecting and decorating right now.
They have a website where you can shop online and/or request a catalog just click on the link/name above to check it out.
I hope you're having a great Monday and I apologize for not visiting and getting around like I usually do. Hopefully, I'll improve after the Olympics....plus I really do need to get this house on the market! Once it's sold and I'm moved I will be a better blog friend...I promise!
