Okay, so much for this little craft being done by Sunday! Sunday morning I stayed home with Gracie (who was sick), while my husband and other two children headed off to church. The neat thing is I can listen to our church service on the radio at the same time I would listen to it if I were there...but anyway, I started cleaning house, and well, I just never stopped until it was time to call it a night. The good news is my house is clean. The bad news is I am so behind on all you fellow bloggers are doing. :) I have been so remiss in visiting you, and know I have much to catch up on! :)
I did finish my craft, though! Can you believe it took another trip to the fabric store?! In particular, the tassel making section...I was having an unbelievably difficult time finding medium length fringe, and last night this is what I had...
But although this is technically a better taken picture, the tassel itself lacked something. It lacked another layer of fringe, which I hadn't been able to find, so I improvised and used more ribbon!
I am not happy with these pictures I got tonight, and think I will have to post another better picture of it tomorrow in the daylight! I just wanted to show you a picture of it tonight, since I kept promising it was almost done! I have a link to the blog that had the tutorial for this and will share that next post. (When my husband can help me with linking my site to the tutorial...I'm still new to that.)
The painting in the dining room is going well. I actually went back to Lowe's for another gallon of paint and gave it a fourth coat. I think the primer they mixed for me was too dark of a gray for my paint, and now I'm much happier, and I am really loving this color! It's SO cheerful, like liquid sunshine! :) I am still finishing the touch up, and there were two areas we had to texture some new drywall we'd added. I have these areas primed and am painting them now, and when this is done I will show you pictures!
I hope you are having a great week! Have a blessed night! :)
