This is my first go at this for the new year, so let's see how I'm progressing so far!  I was on holiday til the 7th, so I had a few days to play between the new year and heading back into the office, and managed to knock a few things off my list already.

Finishes This Week:

  25. Your ironing board cover is so crisp and fresh, you are going to be sad when it gets mucked up. BTW, on the upside-down ness for you (as opposed to the shelf), pretend they are the tree root balls a la Tula/Birds & Bees! ;-)
