surviving...The fourth annual Leisure Games took place the last weekend in August and was, once again, a success. We had seven out of town guests, and we fed lunch and dinner to well over 30 people! The house survived (minus one toilet handle) and is nearly back in shape 2 weeks later.
planning...Finally bought our tickets to Italy for this fall! Now I have to plan the trip. We're thinking we are going to rent a place in Tuscany and explore the countryside. I probably won't care where I am as long as I'm eating all that delicious pasta!
|Oh the texture in the wall paint, Martha? |
I made it myself, with a little help, I suppose.
It's kitten hair. I'm glad you like it.
making...Curtains for the room-in-progress. It's very difficult to put a room together when you pick the wall color first. I couldn't find curtains that included the wall color or blended well with it, so I found a fabric we like and decided to make them myself. Curtains are one of the easiest sewing projects because it's just four straight edges.
