These are not in order of accomplishment - but I thought I would share what I've been up to.
I have a sewing bug? Weird eh...since I don't sew. I pretend though. I got some free material from a sister in our ward and so decided to enhance baby's burp clothes. Don't look closely....I was happy with #5 - because I finally figured out a little of how to sew in a straight line. (YES - even though there are lines on the machine and a pedal to follow - it's hard!)This drawer, although might not look good to you - has been driving me NUTS! It's one of a few craft drawers I have that holds ribbon for hair bows and jewelry making supplies. I finally organized it. Now I just need to fix many a bows and bracelet's for baby!!
Hmmm....homemade strawberry jam. Need I say more?Let's just say - 6 cups of mashed strawberries to 12 cups of sugar....NO WONDER it tastes so good. I ended up making 4 batches total - we should be good for another year!
Mmmm...I need to go make some rolls!
Finally - I finished the dresser a few weeks ago. To me - it looks 100 times better. Because I didn't put on the same handles as before, you can see where I filled in the 2nd hole - in the future I might mod podge some sort of something - but for now, I am satisfied. Maybe when Grandma T gets back from Russia she can come toll paint something on the front of the drawers?
I did like the natural color, after we had sanded it and wish that I could have found a clear varnish or something - but I am happy with it. It was my first refinishing project!
