We took this photo while on our trip to the East Coast in Amish country. Too big to get in a suitcase or carry on a plane. So hubby said he would make me one.We purchased some wood at a local lumber outlet cut the pieces 18 inches long and I brushed some white paint on it and some stain on top of that.
We laid it out in the proper design. We did try hot glue, which really did not hold well.
A staple gun applied to the back worked really well. Hubby has a tool stash that easily out does my fabric stash. Not to mention he is very handy around the house with all sorts of projects. It still needs its bow and other decor but should be on the front door by the end of this weekend.
Amongst all this home remodel painting, floors, and putting the house back to straights I did take a few moments to regain my sanity by pulling some batiks for a new project. There is nothing like a new project to calm frazzled nerves.
Row one helped put things back into prospective, made me feel like soon things might get back to normal.
Adding a second row did really finally have me deciding that life will return to normal and in the next week or so several more rows will follow. Nothing is finished around here, including the Amish Star or my new fall wall hanging, but Finish It Up Friday is here and so am I.
