So last nite was date nite with my wonderful hubby.
So we decided to watch a movie at home.
Sounds good so far, right?
Well...he picked the movie "District 9"
and for those of you who have seen it...
it's not a romantic cuddle on the couch type of movie!!
So, I decided to work on a project
while watching the movie!
Earlier in the week I had seen a sweet project by Lola B
involving a ruffled lamp shade...
I could do that!!
(espcially since I had already loaded up
on supplies for it on Friday)
I had 5 packages of this:
and a thrift store lamp that had a cool
lampshade but it need a bit of freshening up!
So...I did a whole lot of this
and ended up with a whole lotta this
Here is the first row going on
and starting the second row
making sure they overlap ever so little...
and it keeps going and going...
until I run out....darn it!!
I guess my lamp shade was taller than I thought...
(oops...please excuse the hole filler on the wall)
15 yards of the bias tape was not enough!!
But it was so easy to do....
and I think I can finish it up on Monday nite if
I get to the store to buy more supplies!
So...my hubby says he "doesn't mind the
ruffly crap...it looks good"
Do you think that is a compliment??
