Fetching floor cloths

I took a cotton drop cloth, some Cutting Edge stencils and leftover paint and made a floor cloth for the living room.

The subfloor is pretty raw looking and hard on the feet.

Once I finally finished the design, I gave it a couple of coats of polycrylic as a topcoat.

It will work until we get new flooring laid.

I have had the pleasant experience of being a neighbor to baby skunks. They were so darned cute. Plus, skunks like to eat rats, in case you are experiencing a rat invasion. Just don't make my husbands mistake of walking the dog in the dark and thinking that the skunk is just a black cat. Unfortunate consequences.

Just down the hall

Original hall before stripping out carpet

I spent the last week painting the six dark wood doors

to a white. Much brighter now.

And an older painting so people will know I paint more than just doors.

Sewing Room is operational....

This just makes me happy. I put some of my favorite paintings by local painters, family photos and my own paintings around to keep me company. Now I just need some time to sew.
