~Whatcha Working on Wednesday~

Good evening blogging friends!
I know I'm late for WWW but I didn't want to miss it again like I did last week, it just makes me do prim stuff that I usually would put off:)

I finally covered a book in homespun! It was really easy to do and I plan on making more to stack. I didn't have any spray adhesive so I just used mod podge a little bit messy but it worked just fine. I had saved Char's tutorial on covering the books so I just followed her instructions only I didn't use a pocket because I want to make more and put them on top of each other.

The Liberty sign I found yard selling Saturday and forgot to show you...this is on top of my stove board, it's the only place that isn't covered with dust.LOL I also used 6 strands of black DMC on the inside cover...makes it look really prim I think. The book is the 1909 one I found at GW, it's a small book so more than likely it will be the top one on the stack.

Here is also a pic of it standing up! Loved how it turned out and didn't take long at all!

Today I went to Alex's graduation from pre-school, I'll show pictures on tomorrow's blog.

I weeded out by the pool house to get ready to put some pink impatients in tomorrow while I have Samantha with me and do the flower boxes out front...I bought red geraniums for there and some tiny white flowers that will hang over the side. The weather here is just perfect it was 80 today and not humid at all...I wish the whole summer could be this way:)
Stop over at Leslie's blog to see what everyone is up to:)
Have a great evening everyone!


  1. I am so loving all of your blue, Rondell! Great job covering the book. I can't wait to see the gatherings you'll create once you finish up the other ones...

    I think your weather is headed here for tomorrow! We are so looking forward to some sunshine and warmth. It's been damp and chilly here so far this week.

    Enjoy those new flowers and touches of summer...

  2. Love the way the book covering looks - must try that sometime - I always come away from your blog with an idea or two and definately inspired!! thanks Rondell. I also liked your blog frog and put it on my blog too!

  3. I love your book, how nice that is! Wish that I could get some yard work done..that is waiting for next week, hopefully the weather will hold out.


  4. Your book looks great!! I would like to do that with a few old books and put it on my old chair that I bought at the antique mall not too long ago. Thanks for sharing!!

  5. I love your covered book!! I so need to do some of those now!!!:0) Have a wonderful day tomorrow planting your flowers!!!~Wendy

  6. Your covered book turned out so neat! Love the color of the fabric too!

  7. Rondell,
    I just love how your book turned out with the fabric cover!! Also love the sign and the candle...great grouping of prim goodies!
    Hope you are having a great week.

  8. Hi Rondell,
    Love your book! Stacking a few will really look neat! :)
    Enjoy your flowers!

    Have a wonderful holiday weekend.


  9. I love your book, it looks so nice! Few weeks ago, I was in the S.Army and I found 3 old books (50 cents/ea), they are waiting for me....I need to cover them.

  10. I love the covered book! That Liberty sign is great too! Hope you have a good day Rondell!

  11. Your book looks great. I think having a few stacked would be a great idea. I love your Liberty sign. You ladies are always so lucky at yard sales and the GW.


  12. Love the blog :) Its so fun :)

  13. Really cute. I found a couple of journals on sale at Wally World for $3.00 each. may have to do them like this.

  14. What a great prim looking book that you made. It has certainly given me an idea to put down for something to do over my summer break. :) There is a small craft shop near our home that does something like this not only with books, but calendars and checkbook covers as well.

    I really love the liberty sign that you have on your stove. It looks primfect! Maybe I will be able to find one of those while garage sale shopping.

    We are having great weather here too. I am very excited about the weekend and all of the things that are planned. Certainly the weather is what I am looking so forward to most because I can get outside all weekend and get my plants potted and some other things finished.

    Have a great day! Thanks for another great idea. :)

    Blessings and Perfect Prims,

  15. Your little covered book turned out so nice and prim.
    Many smiles,
