When in Doubt...

...make a MS State bib.  Doubt equates to (sigh) what to put in the corner where the CHRISTmas tree would think I'd just put the chair, that was originally there back. But, I'm happy with where the chair was relocated to sit beside it's partner chair in the dining area...
LOL...LOL just noticed I didn't move the lampshade with the oh my...

And then for the lonely corner...I thought about putting my grandfather's antique blanked chest in the corner...too unbalanced...etc.
LOL #20 just realized the cowhide rug isn't down (I'd mopped floor earlier) and the leather ottoman is sitting on my cough (barely see it on the right).  Anywho...see..corner needs SOMETHING and bookshelf, chest, etc...just doesn't seem right (there are 2 non moving and 2 moving doors in the door unit, so it's okay if something sits in front of door on left.

So I debate and debate and debate and sew a MS State bib for my expect any day grandson, Master Knight Pitts :-).  State played so poorly yesterday I hate to even mention "State" but we are die hard fans.  Well, except Mr. G who's die hard Ole Miss....  back to sewing...notice anything wrong in pic below?
Yep, I cut the bottom layer same direction as the top (meaning if I left this way the bottom fabric, once bib
craft/arrange furniture day....So I cut another "bottom layer" and carried forth...go Dawgssssssssss!
Cute, eh?
BTW...order one from my retail store "The Garden Gate" (hence blog name) for $15 email name or monogram you'd like.

BTW#2  hopefully will be up and running soon to make online purchases easier.  At present I'm still billing via paypal.

Now back to the furniture....when I looked at the pic of the two chairs where I put them to make room for the Christmas tree (one chair has always been on the dining room wall) I realized the fabric on both chairs is in identical placement...swirls/paisley everything exactly the same...toooooooooooooo "matchey" for back to the corner one goes...

Shhhhhhh...picture is dark because Mr. G. (see his feet) is watching the Sugar Bowl game and asking his wife, yet again, why I'm taking pictures of the shade is back on the lamp? OHHhhhhhhhhhhh forgot to mention...the polyacrylic (remember not urethane) side tables (stump in our part of the world) are for sale by Mr. G...big little small and even (yes, you guessed it) one angled with a MSU Bulldog painted on it (original painted by moi) also for sale...will try to post one of those soon...if you're interested email me and I'll shoot you a pic...

Offff to watch game with hubby...and he lucked out..I also too pic of him layed out in recline after hard day at work and realized when I uploaded to blog it showed our dining room table LOADED with sewing machines, fabrics, all kinda stuff...soooooooooo me no post
Have a blessed night.
