Inside, the bath is completely finished. The drywall in the room itself was put up this past week and he is now smutching the drywall, preparing it for paint. I am getting so excited,
After the painting, the moulding and trim goes up, then the floors. And....you guessed it, it will be ready for my machine and decorations.
Now I have a table, lots of wall hangings, but I needed shelves to hold my books, clock, toy machine, pictures of my grandsons, etc.
Well, I decided to make one!
Here is my clock.....
My daughter-in-law says that I have the clock set for wine time, lol.
Pictures of my Grandsons, David, 10 and Daniel 12. Oh, and our baby, Tamo.
I made my shelves 8 inches high. For books, I did some Applique, some I wrote on, some were ribbons that were on Fat Quarters when I purchased them but most of them are the written part of a salvage edge of my fabric stash.
I added my Toy Singer, a jar of buttons, a pincushion, clock, and I had to put my cat on. (She is always with me)
Here are my grandsons, aren't they handsome?
I also added my scissors, markers, flowers, oh, and my antique iron.
I quilted each shelf with straight lines and, or a grid pattern
Total size is:
26 1/2" X 38 1/2"
I got the idea to make shelves from some quilts I seen online. I seen shelves for libraries, and even picture quilts (which would be a great idea). I only ever seen bed size though, and also never any that used the salvage edge for books. I had to put my own twist on it, and make it mine.
OK, I got lots of other ideas and things I want to make for in my new room. So off I go....will show you later.....
HAPPY QUILTING EVERYONE!!!
