Polka Dots

I'm supposed to be packing for QSDS, but instead I thought I'd show you what my sister, Nancy, has been up to. I have been painting fabric and generally messing around in the wet studio, so not a lot to show for myself. But not my sister! She's nothing if not productive. This is the front of an old dresser she got from a friend. It was very brown and tired looking when she got it, and she couldn't wait to sparkle it up.


Here it is with the bookshelf on top. It sits in the corner of her (blue and white) kitchen.


Here are the detail shots. First, a side view:


This is the other side.


Here it is with the bookshelf on top.

This is what the top looks like.


Now you can see why my friends all say that "Nancy" is a verb!

My only contribution was to suggest more polka dots when she said it needed something else. Polka dots: my solution to every design problem. Well, almost every design problem.

I suppose I should get moving. All my stuff is packed, I just have to get it in the car. Cathy and I are leaving this afternoon. Tomorrow we will see the Fiberart International Exhibit, and then head for Columbus.

Beautiful! I'm so jealous of her talent!!
"Nancy" is most definitely a verb! my mother is a Nancy (Altar Guild Pres), another Nancy is the Choir Director, and yet another Nancy is President, Chairman or Director or nearly everything else in our church! LOL
