Happy Thanksgiving!

We planned to host Jonathan's family, but due to inclement weather (and the fact we live on top of a mountain that gets hit hardest by said weather), the venue changed. However, in anticipation of having people here, I was motivated to get some some projects done.

All, of course, fabric related.

Project #1:
I backed bookshelves with unbleached muslin. It really lightened up a space that was very dark. I could have gone crazy with a pattern, but decided that I just needed lightness-and
muslin is cheap!

DURING:


AFTER:

(The fabric is the same color as the wall, but trust me, there's fabric on the back of the bookshelves!)

Project #2:
I created art. I purchased two 22 X 28 canvases. I found an image I liked online,
enlarged it and modified it, traced it and cut it out,
used Wonder Under and ironed it and ended up with these:
(Notice the bike? That's a nod to Jonnie.)
Have a great Thanksgiving and eat a lot of these:

Wow! It's been awhile!

Well, my email doesn't support large files (like videos), so you all get to enjoy this, although it's really for my baby brother:

I'll post some more stuff....maybe!
