Three Things Thursday: Declutter, Make a Double Blanket, and Make a Pillow!
Less Clutter, Blanket, and Pillow/s!
Thursday is here again – the first one in October! So if you have visited or followed my blog, you know what that means – and for those who are here for the first time, check out my blog topic schedule in the image above. For today…
It’s 3 Things Thursday!
So among multiple tasks on my schedule today (including blogging, commenting, and the boring ones, like putting laundry away), here are my three things to tell you all about on this Thursday: doing more decluttering of the area vacated by hubby’s pool table a few weeks ago, making a double fleece blanket for a wedding gift this Saturday, AND making a pillow (or pair of pillows, maybe) as a gift for my brother who recently moved into his own place in a new town, after living with my younger sister and her family for awhile.
… … …
Some of you may recall my post about my hubby selling his pool table several weeks ago (end of August), which opened up space in the livingroom that I am now reclaiming for a combination office and “kreative” space for my K-Lee’s Kreations business (if not, click HERE and HERE to read about it!)
This is the BEFORE … shortly after the pool table left for its new home…
The AFTER photo is pending … still working on this decluttering / reorganizing phase, because much of that front layer of totes and all on the right side used to live under the pool table! So stay tuned for future posts …
**MAKING A BLANKET!!**
My oldest nephew and his bride-to-be are getting married this Saturday, October 7th. I am working on making them a double-layered fleece blanket. I found this really fun black fleece with designs that resemble a chalkboard with writing and pictures on it…
So I’ll be layering these two pieces wrong sides together, stitching through the middle and around the edges, and creating fringe to make the blanket. Watch for the completed project in an upcoming post!
***MAKING A PILLOW – OR 2!!!***
My only brother moved last year from his old apartment in Gilford, New Hampshire, where he had lived since we lost our Mom in 2011 (he had been staying with her and caring for her). He needed a change and has lived with my middle sister and her family in a different town in New Hampshire since then, but just recently moved over the summer into his own new place. So for an “Apartment Warming” gift, I’m working on making him a pillow – or pair of pillows – to go with his new decor. I haven’t quite decided on the design yet, but it might be along the lines of these pillows I made previously for the same couple I mentioned in my #2 item here, when I went to her bridal shower in August.
I just looked at pictures of his apartment and furniture again, and I’m thinking I’ll go with the multi-pinwheel design in alternating blues, greens, and neutrals. Again, stay tuned for future posts to see the results!
