My brothers youngest daughter and my mom are coming to visit in a few weeks. So, I need to make room for another bed on the main floor. I picked up a daybed from a friend (thank you Maria) and I have been prepping and painting it and now, it is almost ready to set up.
We have a perfectly good futon upstairs in my art room. It is fine for sleeping (and it gets used a lot) but it is NOT comfortable to sit on, and it is too dang hot up in that room this time of year for my mom or my niece.
I have been toying with the idea of getting a daybed and all of a sudden, one was presented to me. My friend didn’t know I had been thinking about getting a daybed, but there it was.
In the mean time I need to made space in my purple sewing room for the bed. Before I go packing everything up and figured I better get to some of the patching and sewing projects that I have been letting pile up. I patched a sheet and 5 pairs of my husbands shorts. Yes, you read the correctly – 5 pairs of shorts.
I also worked to a shirt “project” that I have had for a few years now (like I said, these projects have been piling up!) This shirt was long-sleeved shirt that I found at a thrift store and I wanted to make it sleeveless.
Mission accomplished. Now I am motivated to nip and tuck a few other thrift store shirts I have purchased, but that will have to wait. I need to put the sewing machines away and get the once-loved and new-to-me daybed set up.
Do you have projects or things that you let pile up until you are motivated to work on them?
