While the Mice are Away...


My DH is pulling a couple of night shifts, so I decided to take matter into my own hands and get one of my honey-do projects finished by myself. I've always thought that a couple shelves over my cutting board area would be very handy, so I put these up and I don't know why I waited so long. It was so easy, just pre-drilled the holes, centered the shelves much like putting a border on a quilt and then leveled it before making it permanent and it makes a huge difference in the room. I wish it was that easy leveling some of my quilts! I'm going to slowly work my way up the power tool ladder until I feel comfortable with a table saw. For some reason, they just scare me. Right now though I'll stick with the power drill, hammer and level and be happy.

I also put up this cute little sign above my window that my daughter made for me. Now back to finishing my quilts.
