Whatcha Working on Wednesday

I have one thing that I have been working on and two things that Jimmy's been working on. First of all, I finally completed my first stitchery. I was so scared to start it. But when I finally did start I loved it and didn't want to stop. So, I think I have found my new favorite thing.

It is definitely not perfect but I am happy with the way it turned out. I honestly don't remember who I got the pattern from but it was a freebie and I know I found it in blogland. Okay, now on to Jimmy's projects. We found two old tables in the basement at our church. They were not being used nor had they been used the almost six years that we have been there. So, they really needed a new home. And what better place than our's. Here are the before pics....

And the halfway finished pics......

They will probably be similar to the coffee table when they are finished.

Now ya'll click on over to Leslie's and check out what everybody else has been working on.

Have a good evening.

what a great job on the stitchery...remember they aren't supposed to be perfect just prim:)I think maybe you found the Blessings pattern on Twigs & Srigs? She has alot of freebies and I have her link listed under my fav links on my sidebar:)

Love the tables they will go so well with the coffee table.

Hey Susan,

Great job on the stitchery. It looks great!!! Also, I loved what you did with the coffee table in the earlier blog. Your end tables will be a great accent for your new room.

I've not blogged in over a week. I've had an awful case of brochitis and all I've wanted to do is sleep at night.

Good job on everything....

Be happy....gigi
