LifestyleMost of the house is done and ready for me to clean up the dust and cat hair. There is one area in the living room that needs painting and we can have the house to ourselves.
Yesterday the fireplace was finished and ready for painting. That will happen on Saturday.
The whole mantle cost us $13.50 as we used the old mantle and a piece of primed MDF we had on hand. We bought a piece of trim after the Spousal Unit had blood work done in the morning.
I will be washing the floor around the fireplace preparing it for the painter. Then we move back into our space. We can hardly wait.
SewingAs we were having the fireplace done and a few other small jobs completed, I decided to sew the doll's St. Patrick's Day dress. It was an easy pattern to sew up.

The dress is a bit long so I am considering making a netting/tulle crinoline for under the dress. I have enough fabric left to make something else -- maybe a short coat to wear over the dress when going out to parties. There is a cute coat/jacket included in the pattern. This outfit gets a necklace that will be longer in length. It is clear crystals with tiny green beads between the crystals.
Next is to make the jeans for the doll's SWAP. I need to get them done and off the list.
TodayI am home and plan on grocery shopping and then cleaning house with several loads of laundry on the side. We are alone today so I can clean house.
Until the next time.....................
