What you working on Wednesday..

Hi There Everyone!

Well I have been out straight trying to get the dining room finished. I posted about it a couple weeks ago hoping Ed would get a chance to finish up that one room while he was home. He did get a lot done before he had to head back out, and the boys and I have been busy the last two weeks trying to get it finished. I wanted to post some before and after pictures, which I'm hoping to do by the end of the week, so check back in a couple days. :)

Anyways, I have been trying to get my Make Do chair finished to put in the dining room, and finally got it all finished today.
I have had the ladder back for years and have been trying to figure out how to make the make do for about a year now. I did a lot of research, and really found very little on how to construct them. I study what pictures I came across, and thought I finally had it figured out. It was a bit difficult, but I am happy with the way it turned out. I made some mistakes on it, but will know better next time...if there is a next time ... :)

Well I think that's about it. I did finish up some bird pincushions I was working on too. I wanted them for the hanging corner cupboard in the dining room. I'll have to go take some pictures so you can all see them.
Thanks for taking a peek, and have a blessed day!

Okay ladies, I just took a couple pictures of my bird pincushions, and I forgot I finished up a hanging sheep over the weekend. I used a Kentucky Primitive pattern for the sheep.

I love all my birdies, but these two are my favorites!

Here is the sheep. Don't you just love his fat little body and stumpy legs!!
