Greetings. Cold rainy crap here today. I have leaves to pick up after the high wind storm the other day and we won't be near 40 degrees for days. It's 44 now, dark, raining, and my husband is on the golf course. They just don't give up.
I received an email complaining that I didn't post about the box sale today. I'm sorry but I did say in the last post that the sale would start Friday morning. There were a few problems and I hope they're worked out. I guess if the item is sold, you go back to an error page. Or something.
I don't have stitching to show but I did buy something that I'm now questioning. A patched wooden shovel. ?? Why? I guess I will end up happy with the purchase but it was cheap and I sometimes get desperate for a more primitive item. Very scarce around here. Interesting though.
I have to repaint all the trim because the Valspar we got was marking very easily. Every time we put the level or square on it, a mark. So I had a gallon of Behr eggshell enamel mixed and the finish is a soft sheen and very hard. The crown is going up next week and I can't find a chair rail that isn't the typical profile, which I don't care for. Too fancy, too many curves. I found 1/2" stock and wanted to use the plywood cap moulding over, but it's 3/8, not 1/2". I'll figure something out.
Now that I've been away from stitching for a few days, I'm not sure if I want to start another Santa or a sampler. Whatever I find on the floor will probably be my next project. But right now, that would be a lot to pick from. Had another chart slide.
Enjoy your weekend and stay safe.
Thanks for visiting!
