Its BLUE Monday again. Sally from SmilingSally is hosting it and be sure to click and go to her site to see all the other BLUE participants. Don't forget to leave a comment so everyone will know you've been there!
Today I'm sharing a little story about my borrowing my eldest son Geoff's drill whenever I make the Teapot Party Garden Bird Feeders, other crafts or for whatever. Poor boy has to borrow it back from me when he needs it and I always ask tell him I'll hold on to it for him when he's done. That way I can use it whenever a new idea comes up.
Anyway I took my mom to the eye doctor's on Thursday and he text messaged me "Home yet? Shopping". I reminded him where I was and asked "Why". He said he'd left me a surprise.
Look at the surprise! My very own BLUE drill with all the bits and screwdriver pieces! I felt really badly that he'd done that for me. It had never occurred to me that I should maybe buy my own. He seemed to be so happy about doing that for me and insisted it was a good deal. So now I'm the proud owner of a lovely drill. Up until the past year or so I had never used a drill in my life! Acually I think they should make a Pink drill for ladies.
So what was my project this time? I reupholstered my diningroom chairs and I needed to use the reversible screwdriver part of it to remove screws. This is one of the chairs before.
....and this is the seat now.
Remember I made new drapes a couple of weeks ago? This is a coordinating fabric. I have enough to make a runner as well. See the BLUE stripes in it? It really looks pretty and fresh in person.
Its nice to have that project completed. Now drill in hand and looking around. What's next??
Have a lovely BLUE Monday.... Judi xoxo
