Green Room

Mom and dad, Granny and Pap came to stay with me for Christmas, but they didn't come until lunchtime on the 24th. So I had some time to kill...
I painted this room at night after work on the 22nd and 23rd. It still needs some art for the walls and better furniture, but the color is growing on me. What do you think? Too Grinchy?

Adventures in Sewing

So I'm working on being a domesticated wife and so far it's going pretty well. I haven't set anything on fire yet. Last year, I made a stocking for Jake that had deer and camo. It's a little wompy jomp, but it works. This year I decided to make my own Christmas Tree Skirt. Now, that is a big job, let me tell you. For someone who has limited sewing experience, it was a bumpy ride. My grandma showed me a few things about the old Singer sewing machine that I have and I'm sooooo thankful for that. I would have had no clue how to use it. It ran like a champ though!

I found a vendor on called the Red Marionette and I love her creations. She charges high dollar for them and I now know why. She makes these cute felt animals that I just fell in love with. I didn't want to pay $9.50 for a felt owl, so I tried making one myself. It turned out so cute and I gained confidence. I picked some winter-like animals and forged on with my Christmas Tree Skirt project. Below is the final product.
