Wanted...one "she shed"

I have wanted a "she shed" for years...but I wasn't willing to give up on my garden space.
But truth be told, over the last few years I have been limited in what I can grow in the space due the trees next door and our own jacaranda.
Well, the space has gotten so overgrown and shabby, not at all appealing....and its fall, so its a good time to clean up and clear out!
I have been looking at Pinterest for ideas...and I measured...once.
We have a friend that is a contractor, so we think we will hire him to build it, we just need a design.
 This is a very basic design...almost too basic....
 This style keeps catching my eye....I think the shed must have french doors!
This is cute, I like the symmetry, but again, I have my heart set on french doors.....
I would just love to have a she shed like Joanna Gaines' shed!! Perfect!
Isn't this adorable?? French door cozy perfection. Of course, this is bigger than my space will allow, and I wouldn't be able to have a fireplace either....but this is darling!

The interior will be just as important. It will house the potting table, and tools....but must be cozy and perhaps have a couch or daybed or some such. It must have windows... and I love the ceiling in this one....
At this point...it is in the planning stages....so we will see.....
Isn't that what dreams are all about??
We will see....first off, we must clear and remove all the plants and level the area....whether there is a future shed there or not, the area has just gotten "gross"....ugh.
Do any of you have sheds?? I would love to see them!
Yours, Nancy

Almost Good As New

If you have been reading the blog, you know what happens when you spray Lysol on Oil Rubbed Bronze door handles. Yeah, not pretty. And, a very expensive mistake...or at least it can be.
Behold....(as a reminder)

It basically just takes the finish off!
So, I asked you readers what I should use to fix it, not wanting of course to take the set off and take it to a refinisher who would charge upwards of $300 to fix it.....
So, One wonderful reader mentioned, Rub n Buff.....
That was an "Ah ha" moment.....
Except that around here, Rub n Buff seems to only come in gold, brass and patina....not what I was looking for.......
So, I went online and happily I found, Rub n Buff comes in a multitude of colors! Now, they don't have Oil Rubbed Bronze (that's too easy), but they had Ebony (black) which most closely resembles our Bronze color, as it is the darker one.....
So, I experimented on an inside door handle that was very brassy....
And although I am not going to show you the …

A Little bit of This and That

I need to sew, something everyday, or I get grumpy!
Today, it was a pillow....ah.....
I found a cross stitch panel that someone had done, and fell in love with it. It's actually a covered bridge, but it looks kinda like a barn...so I took it home, no idea at all what to do with it.
Today, it hit me....a pillow!
When I went to the closet, I found a pillow form....sweet!!
The panel was almost the right size, at least width wise....height wise it was a tad short. I measured and sure enough it was almost 5" different...so, I went to the closet again and found 2 1/2' strips from another project...perfect! So, I used those on each end....
So what about a backing....hummmm. I love linen. The family room, where this may end up is being painted a taupe grey....so into my drawer where linen lives, and there was a remnant from another project...grey linen....
So, long story short....I literally just stitched it together....and made it an envelope closure...that I stitched closed wit…

Still in Stitches

I've been busy!!
I literally have 6 quilts started in different stages of completion. Really!
They are mostly destined for birthday presents or gifts for others....but I've been busy.
Last Saturday I had my Pickle Pie Club....that was the first one I disliked....I didn't complete the item, and it I had gotten a third of the way through and had cut fabric all wrong, so had to start again....It was a crossover bag, and it will never come to pass. I had to remove it from the hoop as I needed that hoop for a project that was ordered....yup...I had a sale!
This is a darling bib for a baby boy....ordered by a friend. I charged her $20. Which considering it takes two hours to make this bib, I didn't think was too much.....she let me know she thought it was a bit much. When you consider fabric, thread, time etc...it isn't. This is a quilted item (it doesn't show so much in the picture)...but it is fairly complicated...What do you think??
Then, while the embroidery unit…
