I've decided that our ? (computer, sewing, school...) room will, from now on, be called the wreck room. It sounds kind of fun just saying it. I'm sure people will get the inpression of a room filled with video games/equipment and a foosball or pool table, but you know the play on words will be plenty of fun for me. I did finish the valance for that room last weekend.
Not exactly your typical "rec" room decor, but hey, just
perfect for room dominated by four sewing machines.
I thought the homespun went well with the bears.
A couple of them even have homespun dresses or bows.
I used a decorative stich to put a small detail on the underlayer.
I do enjoy my sewing machine.
My younger brother brought over all the dirt he used in his buckets this year and put it out on my garden. He uses new dirt every year because growing veggies in buckets tends to deplete the soil of it's nutrients. It wouldn't be so bad if he could compost the organic matter back into the soil, but the buckets won't allow the organic matter to get warm enough to break down and he has no place to make a compost pile, so my garden will reap the benefits. It makes me all ready to sit down and plan out next year's garden. My older brother and I got to spend some time talking with one of our cousins Saturday about gardening. This past summer was the first year she ever grew a garden so we encouraged her and shared a couple of tips. I hope to get another chance to talk with her more about it at our Christmas party; maybe even get both my brothers in on the conversation this time.
Mmmmm, spring isn't THAT far away!
