Making A Mattress

Sometimes you just have to make some practical things. Today I made a mattress for the iron bed. Not that it will ever be seen after the bed is dressed. Yancey (Button's brother) and the cat had to see if it was going to be comfortable. ;-)

It took me forever to paint the bed with oil paints. Paint hates me and it is mutual!!! I can't even get the top off before I have it all over me and many times everything in the vicinity. I added all the brass medallion findings to the head and foot boards (56 of them if I remember correctly.

I bought the fabrics and some lace in Chicago. So this week I hope I will be able to find time to dress the bed (another first)

I am STILL stuck on Federal Jury Duty until the end of the month.
