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...
