As I put my iced tea gallon jug into the recycling container, I spotted the Jif jar. How could I forget that I finished it? Never dawned on me because I have a habit of carrying something, getting distracted, and setting it where it should not be. The grapes are in the salad and almost gone. Love this stuff.
But I got tired of searching for the floss bag so I changed the color. It looks just fine and I may like it better than the lost color. I followed the sampler's misalignment but not all of the 1/2 and 3/4 stitches. I'm not sure if they would be noticed on the higher count linen with pastel threads, so I just made the full cross. I plan to age it with a spray and a few spots.
Many years ago, I made a shelf to hold wooden bowls (similar to this Pinterest photo) but never attached the front rails or painted it. Since then, the number of bowls have increased and there is no way this item would be large enough.
So we stained and sealed (yuck) and added the rails to the front of the shelves to create a lip. My brother has an extensive collection of rare milk bottles so we gave it to him. No way they will all fit, but his cat(Peanut) is a little devil and into everything so at least his favorites will be on the wall and protected from her mischief. If not, his very early canning jars will fit. These are filled with fixatives from 30 years ago when I made potpourri. Time to get rid of them also.
70's today. Then the cold returns.
Enjoy your day and stay safe.
