Can you believe it's that time again!!!! Wish the weather was more fallish but the signs are all over. There are heavy cobwebs everywhere, the locusts start making their sounds earlier in the afternoon and leaves are falling all over. To top it all off.....TOMORROW IS SEPTEMBER 1! How can that be?
I've been trying to complete some of my projects. Does anyone else have that issue? I have all these projects half finished and nothing completed. So yesterday I finished 2 appliqued pillows and 2 lampshades.
These are the two lampshades I made. Note to self "don't make lampshade with fabric containing large amount of polyester". It was so hard to glue but thank heaven, I had lots of clothes pins and ribbon (& patience). This was the fabric for the back of my pillows so thought it would be wonderful for a shade......and it looks great but was sooooooo difficult to make. Actually, this shade (including labor) should sell for about $500). But it won't!
Love the way it looks on the black lamp.....and with the pillow.
Guess I'd better get back to the work table. Lots of projects to complete by next Thursday evening plus there are dozens of candles to be marked (did I tell you I don't like marking merchandise?).
Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend and can stay cool.
