For the $5 quilt I'm just starting there is an accessory applique block each month. This month's has a pieced background and I did get it done this week. The points aren't as good as I'd like them to be but let's face it, applique is going to go over it so I'm not going to redo anything. I was thrilled, however, that it came out the right size! And I have room to trim it up later on. You all know how I've been struggling with that! The instructions on the applique placement are non-existent so I'm holding off until I get more direction at this months meeting.
Chris has been working on refinishing 2 end tables we gave him. He's using them as nightstands. They were the typical oak color but he wants them a dark coffee brown to match the big mirror we gave him at Christmas. This is the first time he's done anything like this and the first one came out nice.
