A fun, but simple project!

A Lampshade!!! I'd been searching for the perfect lampshade to go with a lamp I'd bought at a thrift store but hadn't been able to find one I liked. Finally I decided that if I couldn't buy one, I'd make one and I bought the frame at our local JoAnn's along with a yard of moss colored burlap. The shade was sticky so it was incredibly easy to cover and then I hot glued the edges down. I think it goes very well with the decor in our little cabin and its green which makes it all the better. Now I'm thinking about covering a bigger shade with burlap for another lamp I have but don't quite care for the style of shade.....someday I might tackle it but for now it'll stay the same I'm afraid.

I know this isn't the most grand project but I was so excited about the way it turned out I just had to share. Oh and the basket next to the lamp was made many years ago by my husband. Yep, he's very talented in many things! :-)

I've several projects planned for this weekend/coming week and I'll try to post pictures, hopefully! But since we've only got a dial-up Internet connection we'll see how it works, otherwise I'll have to wait 'till next time we visit my brother and sister-in-law and use their Internet which is much faster to say the least.

Projects in the works:
Covering a lampshade
Crocheted baby blanket

Here are pictures of two babies....One is Baby Roy and the other is Jay when he was a baby. Don't they look incredibly alike?

Well, you know they say, "Like father, like son!" :-D

My favorite Little Man - Roy

I know I'm terribly prejudiced but I think he's adorable! ;-)

Update that I *should've* posted months ago!

   Hello! I know most of my readers have probably given up on ever seeing a post on here again but I promise I have many good excuses for why I haven't done anything with this blog for a long time (one of them being no internet service 'till recently)... and one of them being I got married 10 months ago! :-D Just a quick husband Jay, is wonderful and I love being married!!! Last year we started courting in July and married in November with the blessing of our parents and since then I've been incredibly busy setting up house and preparing for the birth of our baby boy that was born 2 1/2 weeks ago. Little Roy is absolutely adorable and I love, love being a mother! Being a wife and mother comes with many changes but the joys and blessings are so incredible that I sometimes wonder if I deserve it all. :-)

   I'm hoping to start updating this blog again regularly and I've big plans for many sewing and craft projects in the near future so be patient with me as I adjust to blogging again and learning all over again the blogging world.

   So, if I still have any is my long overdue update and I hope to "talk" to ya'll again soon! ;-)
