Recently I noticed the seat on my bicycle that sits in my garden was looking more than a little shabby. With all the colorful yarn that I keep stashed in a basket, I decided to crochet a slip cover. It blends in so nicely that it's hard to tell the flowers from the seat cover.
The basket on my bike is full to overflowing with blooms! I used the "bloom" tool on Picmonkey to edit these two photos.
As for the hard work mentioned in the title, I'm painting my kitchen cabinets. In this photo I have primed and today I got one coat of paint on this section including all the doors and drawers. I can't put the second coat on until tomorrow because it needs to dry for 16 hrs. before a second coat. This is the most amazing paint, unless something happens between now and the next coat. I'm using Benjamin Moore Advance Waterborne Alkyd. It's hard like an oil, but cleans with soap and water. It also smooths out beautifully with very few brush marks. There is almost no smell too!
Don't you just love the harsh lighting from the bare bulbs! Remember the light fixture episode from an earlier post. We are still looking for a new glass shade replacement. I also plan to spray paint those brass fixtures if I don't have to replace them.
What's for supper honey?
