Today's Projects

Hello friends!!

Today was a beautiful day~the sun was shining & the temperature was in the 70's. I had the day off, so I worked on some projects. I finally found a little ambition. My first finish is this wool journal. It's perfect for a little hammock time~something to jot down your thoughts, sketches, or anything else you may be dreaming about.

And since I had my wool out, I finally finished this lampshade for my son. I have hopes that he will become an Eagle scout like his older brother. I found 2 eagle lamps at an antique shop a few years ago & made a shade for Cody when he completed his Eagle project. Hopefully Stephen will follow in his footsteps & earn his Eagle scout badge also. If he does, I will be ready.

Have a good evening. I have to work tomorrow, so it's off to bed soon for me. 2:30 a.m. comes really fast, so I need to go to bed early. I need my beauty sleep. LOL

Sweet little journal, Becky!!! Love it!! And that lampshade is awesome! My nephew just earned his eagle badge - I didn't realize what all went in to that, and what an honor it is, until he went through it! What a blessing to have two sons (should that come to pass) being Eagle Scouts! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I wish I had that kind of ambition! Great job. I love the journal. Great shade too.
Have a good day at work tomorrow. Boy, I thought I got up early. I am usually up just before 4 every morning.

Becky, you accomplished a lot on your day off! Your journal is wonderful and your son's lampshade turned out great. I like the wool you used for the eagle. And how cool that you found two eagle lamps so both boys could get one! ~Roberta

AWESOME lampshade! My son is an Eagle Scout too, but I've never really made anything special to mark the occasion - had always planned to make him a quilt but it just hasn't happened yet.
