Future Endeavors.

via stimulated mind.blogspot com - by Ernst & Thistle
I love these! Recycled coffee sack pillows - perfect for my rustic decor & infactuation with coffee.  8)   I've been jumping on the "simplify" band wagon this week - trying to de-clutter my living space - less junk I have, less junk I have to keep organized!  I'm pretty good at purging stuff, so I hope this theory works!!

Have a happy Mother's Day - this is my first one!

Fresh Figs...


I can't wait for this kit to arrive! It has been the inspiration behind my master bedroom re-decorating project.  I am also going to make several quilted Euro shams with the same fabric, possibly a red bed skirt, lots of cream bedding, and some burlap coffee sack accent pillows?!?  Sounds non-traditional, should fit right in!                   
Also, I'm thinking a re-purposed chair and automan - in red checkered, or all cream? - with a monogrammed pillow.  Hmm, if I could just get all of my ideas accomplished, I'm sure it would look amazing, haha.  One day @ a time!!
Happy Easter!!

More fun to come!

4 1/2 Months

First pair of jeans!  I admit they only lasted long enough for me to take some pictures... they are so much harder to manuever while she's practing rolling over on the changing table! 

I have some of this fun coming in the mail this week -Riley Blake's Sugar & Spice.   I plan to make several quilted pillows using Heather Mulder Peterson's Sham's With Style book and eventually a small bed quilt (but that hasn't made the To Do list yet).

Mini Patchfolio ...

This is the Mini Patchfolio... by Craft Apple.  I have had this pattern a long time, and finally had the chance to try it out.  It is a much more stylish way to take notes during meetings @ work.  I used basic fabrics from Joann's, but was going for the Vera Bradley look...  the matching glitter pen and purple legal pad were just an added bonus!!   I'm excited to get something on my completed list!

Wishful Thinking Scrapbook

So, I'm not much for real scrapbooking, but blog scrapbooking - I'm all about!  I am starting to gather some ideas for re-decorating my master bedroom.  In the end, I can only hope it will look something like what you see here...

Fresh Start


Wow, I won't even mention when I started this project, I wouldn't want to embarrass myself!  I'm proud to say it's finally being added to the finished pile for 2011.  


I am excited to explore some new adventures this year, including being a mom (still sounds weird) and developing a decorating style that reflects my personality and inspires me to keep creating.  I think being able to drink coffee again has already helped immensely in making this goal become a reality!

Happy Holidays!

 Merry Christmas!!
and Happy New Year!!

I wish I had some finished projects to share, but I've been busy developing this little miracle for the past 10 months.  So, I guess that makes my New Year's resolution pretty simple - get back to my sewing machine!! (Which means I need to stop surfing quilt blogs like Twin Fibers and Raggedy Owl and produce some inspiration of my own).
