Flower Power √


MAKE IT HAPPEN! — Monday Status Report:

√    wk  3–> Flower Power leaded [link to be added]
x    wk  2 –> Glass cutting/leading Flower Power
√    wk  1 –> Paint Bedroom Shutter Sliders — project #30 Elegant Blue Wonders

Since I am an expert procrastinator, I am participating in Kristi’s Make It Happen! Monday, at Addicted2Decorating.  We are attempting to finish one of those ‘hanging-around-never-done’ projects by commiting to it here — keyword ‘attempting‘.

After meeting my target the first week, I quite ambitiously comitted to finishing my current stained glass commission, Flower Power, for the second week.

This is what I had done [left] before & I did get a little section cut & leaded.  I did get all the flowers leaded & set in place but . . .

Oops, left with a number of weird spots to fill in, I simply didn’t get it all done — so it was still on my plate for this week.

Of course, since cutting straight lines is a lot quicker, I did detour a little with valances for the big living room windows:

The empty valance awaits photos — but, um, ran out of matte photo paper for the printer.  Next week.  😉

So, it is on the list for next week — a simple job to print 4 photos.

But hey, let’s get to the good news!

All done except for one small area that’ll have to wait for Tuesday — it’s almost midnight & I need to post!

With the cutting & leading so very close to being finished this week, I am officially calling this baby done [as far Make It Happen Monday is concerned].

Of course, I still need about ½ hr. to fit in the last piece [or 2], maybe ½ hr. to solder the joints, & about 1 hr. to putty & clean — again, a simple job comparatively.  I will add the link when I post the story.

Congratulations to everyone who met their target.  😆

Next Project

The simpliest project for this week will be printing the photos for the bare valance:

Left valance–‘my’ side–installed with glass sections in place, awaits my photos.  Yes, a little putty job & a paint touchup is needed too.  😐

The main project this week will be to clean almost everything out of the porch:

This skinny porch holds a lot of stuff — mega coats, a bulky coat rack, dog pillows, a wicker bench filled with books & fabric, the cat’s ladder, an old rocking chair, & assorted junk that gets stored here because there is absolutely no more room in the house!

I’m not committing more for this week but plans for the porch include a much skinnier bench, vacuum storage cupboard, plenty more storage, coat hooks with shelves, & of course, paint.

Yes, AGAIN I just barely got this post done on MONDAY!  Talk about procrastination, eh?  😦

Check back next Monday [July 2nd] to see how I do at Making It Happen.
