Thanksgiving update

Thanksgiving progress update: four weeks out.

Some pretty corners beginning to emerge around the house.

Ceramic birds perching on ledges. To-do lists overpopulating on the dining room table. Hours spent laying in bed, eyes squinched shut, trying desperately not to run through every proposed menu item and the work it will require...

Dubious progress on back kitchen.

Last week:
This week:
Dubious. Yes. The nightstand has been painted, and after this evening's touch-ups it will hopefully find a home in our guest room. I've begun to sand the desk. The windows, visible in the earlier picture, have been re-glazed, re-painted, and re-hung.

What's keeping me awake at night is the two copper-colored dupioni silk slipcovers I'm supposed to make, the bedroom floor that's supposed to get redone, and the miles of white window-trim to be scrubbed and shined.
Four weeks to go. Eeep.

Good lord, scrubbing window trim? I don't think I've done that ever... (cleaning gets in the way of my knitting time) You're very dedicated!

You are one busy bee! And I LOVE that blue mirror in the first picture! Stunning!

Kristina said...

Thanks Liz! I spray painted it. Guess where I picked up that handy trick? ;-)

I'm loving your "pretty corners!" That mirror is especially amazing!!

I too like your pretty corners. And much like ladysaphira, scrubbing window trims would cut into my blog reading time. You go grrl!
