While eating breakfast this morning, I made a list of what I needed to do and laughed when I saw that they all involved the letter P.
I used left over fabric to finally paint some pillows for the sofa.
While I was waiting for the paint to dry ( I love Annie Sloan Chalk Paint because it dries quickly) I checked sweeping the patio off my list.
Several windy days had left piles of sand in the yard and Lulu thinks sweeping is a game for her to catch the broom so this task is not easily accomplished, but I got the patio in shape.
I didn't use welting on the pillows so they were quick to make - less than 2 hours from prepping to placing them on the furniture.
I love the yellow stripes, but the red pillow was a failed experiment.
Fortunately, I have tons of the white fabric from making the sofa and chair slipcovers, so I can make another red pillow in a different design.
I love the yellow stripes, the buffalo checks on freshly washed slipcovers, and the polka dot quilt which is to spread over the sofa to keep it white for a little while because,
as soon as I got the slipcovers back on the sofa, Lulu jumped up and took over - at least I had just given her a bath.
I did not get to the Pierpont to swim, but I counted a run/walk with Lulu after her bath and 30 minutes of sweeping the patio as my exercise for the day.
I did get to the post office to mail off a giveaway prize and a pillow I made for Kris of Junk Chic Cottage and some pillow cases to Jann of Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson.
Tomorrow's project is painting my antique record cabinet so I can finish off the bedroom - I can't wait to show you the vintage bedspread I found in the attic.
