One small project

Hello, Friends,

How are you here at nearly the end of January? Is it just me, or is the time zooming by for you, too? 

While putting things away after the holidays I unearthed something bought ages ago and never used. That fact reproached me. Now this is no longer the case. We began with this:
The card  table set up in the living room used for jigsaw puzzles. When first found its top was damaged so I hastily covered it with a thin plastic tablecloth, a not very satisfactory solution. Check it out now:
After stumbling upon this in the closet where decorations and craft supplies are stored, I left it out to remind myself to do something with it when there were a few minutes spare time. It looks much better, don't you think? A pair of scissors and jar of thumb tacks and voila, a much nicer look.
Here is a close up of the exuberant pattern, oh so bright and cheery. It's a great antidote to the January grays. Now the guilt over buying materials and letting them languish untouched is alleviated, at least for the oilcloth. 

Have a good evening!
