Today I'm thankful for feeling good enough to actually put up a Christmas present. I was very blessed this Christmas, my brother made a wonderful table for the hallway. I needed something that I could put a bag on so it was out of Hollywood's reach, but was small enough not to take up a lot of space. And then Callie and Beau got me a "thingie". I'm not sure really what to call it, I asked for a frame with twine to hold snapshots and such, that could be easily changed. I found something on Pinterest that I sent them to reference. I asked for two, one for the hallway and one for the sewing room.
They found a couple of cool pieces, but they were teal and I wanted black. So they painted them black for me. The really cool part is they are metal, and the cloths pins they got me have magnets on them. I tried to hang it but the hooks didn't hold, and I've just not been up to messing with it. But today I put up new hooks and hung it. I don't have any photos on it yet, and I want to make a small (really small) table topper for the table, but at least it is usable.
So today I am thankful for feeling well enough to get part of my Christmas presents into place. The table is beautiful and hopefully soon the "thingie" will be filled with photos. I use instagram and facebook, but still love a printed photo. My next task is to make a very small quilted table topper for the table, but I don't want to cover it too much (because it is so pretty), it just needs a little color. So for now I'm thankful this one is done and thankful that I'm feeling better. Today I'm linking up with Quilting Jetgirl for Thankful Thursday #5.
