Probably the most appalling of all my procrastinated projects was this big "D" made of paper mache. For craps sake, all it needed was black paint but in true ADD fashion I brought it into the cottage, never to be seen again. I think it looks great hanging on the old jelly cupboard and, it helps me remember my name. Smiles, DarLy*~

Not a big project but still an accomplishment was getting this old oak farm table skirted. It is in my "studio" which is also where i keep my cats litter boxes. Wanting to keep the boxes out of sight as well as keeping odor at bay, I decided to store the litter boxes under the table and just "skirt" the issue. Some pretty roses upholstery fabric did the trick. I simply hemmed edges and stapled it right on the table. Actually, I should say my friend and neighbor did. I loaned my upholstery gun to my sister so I called my friend up the road to borrow hers. She came down and dove right into the project with me. What a blessing ! Many hands make light work.

The Return of Crazy.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I'M BACK...kinda. Whew! Seems I've got about all the hatches battened down in ye old cottage although at times I feel an airy chill through the downstairs. I thought I had weather sealed all the homes orifices but perhaps I missed a spot. Perhaps it is a ghost. This is an old home. Well, if it is a ghost I hope it's one with nimble fingers. I've got projects to complete and like the Shoemaker with his elves, everything is past it's projected deadline and I could use all the help I can get. See you around.
