Summer Update

Posted on: July 2, 2011

Hi all its been awhile. I’ve been pretty busy with redecorating a bedroom. I finished it Thursday, just in time for my sister Helen to arrive on Wednesday from Texas. Photos can be found on my Sewing Room page. I painted it, made curtains for the window and closet, a cover for a filing cabinet and pillow shams. I made everything out of sheets that match the bedspread. I also crocheted a Ruffled Doily for the bedside table, I used a free pattern that I found at Antique Crochet Patterns

This is a butterfly from a pattern booklet called Wrought Iron Crochet that I purchased from Barnes and Noble Nook bookstore

I stiffened it with a sugar water solution. I am not real happy with the hangars they are the kind that stick to the wall but are removable. I tried nails first but than realized it is brick behind the drywall so that won’t work. I would like hangars that don’t show. Suggestions anyone?

I also loom knit curtain tiebacks, I put tassels on them and wrote up how I did them you can find the instructions on my pattern page.

I haven’t been doing much loom knitting lately, I can’t seem to get inspired. I am hoping to soon. KissLooms has added new looms to their line and they are fine gauge looms. I also need to come up with a pattern for the Kiss Loom party which is on August 27, It is held in the chat room on the Kiss website and is lots of fun there are prizes, games and a scavenger hunt this year. Feel free to join us To attend you need to be registered on the Kiss website. This has been a long post guess I better go get busy my Hubby’s birthday is tomorrow and on the 4th we are going to a barbque at my daughter Samantha’s inlaws to be house. She just got engaged and is planning a July 2012 wedding. Hope you all have a safe and HAPPY 4th of JULY!!!

Ruffled Doily perfect matched in this room It looks nice !
Great idea to hide any odd thing of wall,we have also decided to paint our apartment lol and it is the most worst work I think !!

Regarding you beautiful butterfly. YOu might try poster putty. I used that a lot hanging things in my dad’s room. Trial and error as most everything else I tried took off the paint or plaster The putty comes in a few colors besides white now. Th other thing you might try and I DON”T know if it works or not. But, in apartments you can hang fabric as “wallpaper” by dipping it in liqud starch and hangingit on the wall pressng out the dampness to reduce wrinkles. I wonder if dipping you butterfly in the starch and taking it down to damp,if it would, by pressing it against the wall, stick also. hmm, well, my two cents worth of ideas! Hope you find a way. The butterfly is so cute!
