So, even though we have beautiful new floors in the living room and dining room, all is not well in the ol’ UD house.

Because of the broken A/C, it’s been pretty miserable trying to sleep upstairs when the Georgia weather is just shy of spontaneous combustion.

We’ve got all the fans we own working overtime, and we have to lug them from room to room as we move around the house.

But, if we have to wait on getting the A/C fixed, we can work on a few other things…

Like making a Halloween wreath entirely from random scraps and old T-shirts. I picked up two orange-and-white striped shirts from Walmart in clearance that reminded me of candy corn. What’s cool about this is that by buying 2XL sizes, I get plenty of fabric for the entire thing. All you need to do is cut strips of fabric into one-inch-wide sections, then tie them in knots around a length of ribbon. Change up the fabrics for added texture and patterns. It’s ok for the strips to be imperfect and have uneven edges – the whole point is to make it look ragged. Click here for a full tutorial and a pic of what the finished looks like.

It’s pretty much a mindless task, and a melted mind is what I’ve got to work with until the A/C is back on (… have I mentioned that it’s broken, and it’s really really hot?).

Crafting is a fun distraction, so in between masses of cloth (which is still a work in progress), I’m also working on fake painted pumpkins and some glittery skulls, which I’ll share with you in a later post.

Small accomplishments. Baby steps. I need some ice water. All for now.
