Okay so this isn't exactly a project, but my dead mums from this fall are alive! My dad cut them down to nubs and now they are green and fluffy!.. well one pot is, I might have killed the other (a second time). Also, 10 points if you spotted the cat tail!
I might have been overly ambitious with this one. I thought "YEAH I CAN SEW NOW" so I got stuff to make a super simple blanket with pom trim.... then realized I don't know how to take the black thread of my machine. Fail. It's wadded up on the dining room table waiting for me. (The sewing machine hasn't made it to the guest room yet because I am too broke to even go to a thrift store and find a $10 table-- wow, that's bad).
The flooring installation came to a screeching halt two weeks ago when Rob reached the stair landing. Vinyl floors don't have stair noses!! Good thing for us to learn... when we already have one room done! We peeled off the carpet on the first step though and ours has a proper wooden bull nose. We think we've ninja'd out a way to use it without having to put in a super ugly brass one. Hopefully Rob can work on it again this weekend. HINT HINT.
