I found a wonderful blog that had a post on how to make tassels its called betasseled and I thought that I would share it with you. I found the bird at one of our local shops for $2.00 and most of the ribbon I already had I just had to make a stop at Hobby Lobby for a few things. I like how it turned out and I think it looks pretty nice hanging from the cabinet in my bedroom. I'm now looking for a rooster but I've only found one that was ceramic and hubby couldn't get a hole drilled into it.
Yes it did have doors on the bottom but I decided to leave the off and display more of my quilts in the bottom. As you can see I painted it red and then sanded on the edges to make it look old and then put a stain over the top. I left the top and just re stained it!
I also had two handles left over from our kitchen cabinets that I used on the top doors.
The blue quilt is I think the only quilt that my grandmother had made. Its made out of feed sack from the 1930's.
While working on my cabinet (which I should have pictures in the next few days) I have also been working on my quilt. All five pumpkins are complete. I really don't know why I took the picture this way but I did!
I love spray paint! Hubby thinks I would be a tagger if I was younger.
We needed a TV cabinet for our bedroom so I looked on line at one of our local web sights and found this one in our neighborhood for $75.00. One of the doors needs to be fixed but hubby is good at that. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
And this is a wooden box that I found in the garbage at work after Christmas. What will be become!
I can't believe that just two days ago it was almost up to 60 and now this is what I woke up to. All the snow had melted and hubby had even tiled the front yard on Wednesday. I was hoping spring was here but I'm not that lucky!
But I was lucky enough to win this box full of yarn from one of my fellow blogger from Camp Runamuck. I thought I was winning a few skeins of yarn not a box full. But I was so happy to see some great sock yarn and more!
This picture is pretty dark I just couldn't get a good picture with it being such a cloudy day! I wish I had got it done the day before because it was such a beautiful sunny spring like day. But that just didn't happen!
I really like how it has turned out, it took some time to hand sew the binding onto the back. But I do like how the yellow on the black looks!
Just thought that you might like the see the back, its really red!
I had to show you a closeup of the quilting! I love the flower border with the little dragonflies!
