*****As for my own projects, I'm currently working on one that is frustrating me to no end! Yesterday I was so grouchy toward KD, and he didn't deserve it at all! Today is even more frustrating! And at the rate I'm pricking myself with pins, I'm going to run out of bandaids soon. I already have one stain on my fabric (thankfully it's the lining, not the good fabric). But I'll post about my project soon! We also worked on the fence this weekend. The posts and cross-pieces are all in place. I just have to finish painting them, then we can start working on the pickets. We have a bit of a rain delay though.

Some Favourite Posts
I love it when some of my favourite bloggers (Like the Nester and Kimba) do posts linking to great projects they liked on other people's blogs. I've been wanting to do that myself...mostly to keep my favourite posts somewhere that I can find them again. If you haven't already seen these posts, enjoy! Living With Lindsay reincarnates a thrift-store chair. I would love to rehab a chair like this. It's gorgeous. (Lindsay, if you notice this link and come check out my post, I wanted to let you know that I've been unable to comment on any of your posts for some reason, but I really love your blog!) Manuela at The Pleasures of Homemaking paints her deck. I love the checker-board pattern, expecially since it continues the floor pattern in her kitchen. Jen from Sanctuary Arts at Home has made an adorable valance out of dropcloth canvas (which, by the way, is such an amazing deal on fabric of that quality! I'll be sharing a dropcloth project of my own soon). Anything Jen paints is beautiful.
