Despite my frustration last night, I really have made a lot of progress on my list over the past week. I said I would post pictures of the things that are semi cool so here are the most recent victories. First up, one of the best inventions ever: FLOR carpet tiles.

Next up, my chair project. While I don’t have any finished products to show, I made progress in the supplies department. I got the foam for the cushions as well as some special order fabric and everything was a steal thanks to sales and coupons at Jo-Ann’s. I probably saved around $100 total. So exciting. I plan on tackling this right when I get back from Thanksgiving.

I also bought and spun yarn around the antique spools I got about a month or so ago. I’m not sure I love the look of this. Jury’s still out. For now though, it’s fine.

I like the yellow but I'm not sold on the brown or cream

And here’s how the typesetting drawer turned out.

So that’s all so far. Definitely making baby steps of progress. Posting will most likely be spotty for the next week as I am heading home for the holiday and will be busy eating, napping and playing Barbies with my nieces. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
