Going In Too Many Directions

Time is sure flying by these days with me helping Gail get her new shop ready. Boy is it going to be something!!! The furniture/fixtures have arrived from France and some of the merchandise is in. There is still a lot to do and we are spending six days a week there, working very hard. Gail has given me permission to post pictures after she's open. All I'll say for now is that the Garden Market will be one of those places you love to discover and share it with everybody you know. I just can't wait till it's open.

I haven't had time to do much else with my living room makeover as I'm trying to get my front and back yards under control. You know how it goes...one day you look at a shrub or plant and think "I need to transplant that" and the next day you say "I should have moved that before it grew so big". Well, I'm running all over the place trying to get weeds cut and killed, mowing under control, digging huge hostas that I should have dug a couple of weeks ago before they turned into monster hostas, and trying to keep up with my hens and the eggs they are producing. Somehow, I'm managing to get it all done, just not able to sew or do any of my other crafty things.

I did make a trip to Jo Anns last week and bought my fabrics for the living room valance, pillows and the hutch "redo".

The cream colored burlap (2.99/yd) is for the valance. The polka dots will be new accent pillows, and the soft print will be the panels for my hutch.

I did manage to spray paint my curtain rod black tonight to match the curtain clip rings. I can't wait to get it all done - what a difference paint makes!

I don't like letting so many days go by w/o posting and will try to have something good to show you tomorrow.

Love the fabric choices! We did mulch last weekend on our hostas because this coming weekend they will have turned into the giants you are talking about! Isn't it amazing how quickly they spring up?
