Applying what I've learned
How do you like the finishing touch to my newly painted bathroom? Very labor intensive, but very rewarding. I did my best to transform Jamie and Rosanne's fabric bowl technique to a fabric rug. It has a few high spots, but I think once I take the rubber hammer to it and scotchguard it, I can then pronounce it finished.
3 yards of fabric, 6 colors 1/2 yard each, and over 60 yards of clothesline. Last count I had over a dozen bobbins emptied in this project. I lost track of time (as well as bobbins).
Actually this has been my therapy break the past few days as I've tried to get my house back in order after almost 3 weeks of being either on the road or entertaining guests. It's amazing how long it takes to find a new normal or return to routine. Working on a project that can be completed in a few days when taking a break is most rewarding. And the colors of this rug, and my bathroom, just make me happy.
It's the simple things in life that are sometimes the most rewarding!
