The season for yardsales and garage sales is one of my favorite times of the year.
This is so I don't accumulate too many items in my household.
From the FREE stuff I aquired some interesting items.
Then the next sale we went to had another FREE section. I got a brass colored stand that even works better for the bird bath.
At that sale I also got a FREE brass milk can. I have it outside on the stairs comming up to the porch. I'm thinking of shining it up and adding dried branches to it as a decoration for inside the house. At least that is one idea I think might work for it.(oh btw, don't flip out, that's a ceramic cow skull. Not the real thing. )
When I got it, it only had the beak & the small section of the bird's cap done.
I enjoy working on this in the evenings while I listen to the tv.
I'm hoping that Sarah (lilux) & I can work on this project together.
Another project Sarah & I have started is sewing a blouse each. I'm not a sewer, but I do know how to sew as far as running a sewing machine and mending things. I've created a few small projects, but generally I don't sew.
Sarah is taking a class in highschool in which she is working on some sewing projects. One is a pillow that she has finished and it looks wonderful. I'll have to take a photo of it when she brings it back here again. Also she's made a doll that is filled with rice. It's used as a warm up comfy for little kids called a booboo aid, like a soothing heat pack for aches and pains.
Other projects she is working on for class is a couple of tops. One is a halter and I'm not sure what the second one is exactly.
Here's the pattern and the materials we chose. I'll post a pic if we get them finished. ;-)
