Working on some Goals...

I've been working on the house... again. It's a forever work in progress, but I'm trying to make an active effort right now. So, I actually made a wreath for the door at Christmas. Yarn wrapped around the wreath form. I need something else to finish it, but I haven't figured that out yet. It'll come. Before next Christmas, I hope.

Next, was new bedding for all of us. I have been looking for a new quilt for our bed for a while. I wanted a quilt, something not too heavy with a sophisticated contemporary feel. I happily found something at Target (of course). But I'm really happy with it. Stones have been sewn into it, adding the whimsy that I was looking for.

The kids also got new quilts. The first time that they have owned something that wasn't hodge podge, the boys all match and a girly one for Kyrie.

I also made a reading nook for Caleb out of his closet. He really needs a place to have down time. He was very happy for it!

I am getting there. Soon, I'll have curtains in the kids room and blinds in some of the windows that are missing some sort of covering. It's been 5 years, but we'll get there. Next is some furniture. I keep looking for sales and trying to work around my in laws travel schedules. Really can't wait until Target graces us with its presence. TARGET!
