I promised myself I would post regularly, as a way to measure progress and also as a way to motivate myself to create.
The recent trip to Mississippi really played a number on my back. I haven’t felt like doing much of anything. Thankfully, I can tell it’s getting better now.
I had painted my small kitchen table a few months ago and had plans of making a table skirt. Like most ideas that come to mind these days, I forget them almost as quickly as I think them.
While browsing my favorite thrift store last week, I found a stack of these unused curtain panels. The lightbulb turned on and I bought enough to make my table skirt. They were so easy to do... I cut off the tabs and made one simple hem. I threaded a tension rod through the pre-sewn hem and that was it! I only found one tension rod at the thrift store, so I’ll be on the hunt for three more this week.
Notice I’m set up to sew in my dining room. I have so much clutter in my sewing room, I now feel overwhelmed trying to work in there. Soon I will need to declutter and rethink that area!
I pulled out a few washcloths and started some trim for dish cloths. That’s it!!!
I’m hoping to share a better report next time!
I’m leaving this recipe here for future reference. But if you are from eastern NC, you know what Red Potatoes are. My friend shared this recipe with me. I made them last night for today’s lunch. I only used half the potatoes and didn’t adjust my spices down enough, and mine were too hot. However, the broth is delicious when made correctly, so I will keep this recipe !
