Housekeeping

I’ve been keeping busy doing some housekeeping at the blog and at my house.  I’ve been getting rid of obsolete links and tidying things up around here.  I’m sure I am overlooking something, but I am making progress.  One of my “cleaned up” pages is about books.  It isn’t quite finished.  I hope you will stop by and check it out from time to time.  I’ve also started a list of books I’ve read as a form of accountability to keep me reading!

The Lord very graciously provided us with a new dining set and dish cabinet.  I am thrilled!  I have been busy sorting and rearranging cabinets and shelves.  I have so much more room now, more room for storage and more floor space!!  It makes such a difference in our tiny 900 square foot house.  The table will seat 6 as is, or I can pull out the end and add a leaf and seat 8.  It’s perfect!

As a result of this new table, I had a tablecloth that needed altering. It was a favorite that I didn’t want to part with.  It was a 70″ round tablecloth, but I was able to square it off, sew a new edge around it and pull out threads to make fringe so that it fits the table nicely.

I’ve also been wanting some new runners for the shelves that run under my kitchen windows, but couldn’t find any to my liking.  I bought some fabric and finally got around to making them.  I thoroughly enjoyed being in the sewing room again.  🙂  I was surprised that the fabric I bought matched the tablecloth perfectly!! It wasn’t planned on my part, but God knew.

Thanks for stopping by!  Until the next time…

  1. I’ve just been thinking about the need to do that with my blog, although going through 11 years of stuff will be a challenge. I did have to do that a bit when one site I linked to a lot changed to a new site.

    That is so neat about the tablecloth and other fabric matching! I know what you mean about sewing – I don’t do it much any more, but I like it when I do.
