Projects Around the House

April 27, 2011



After a fun filled and eventful weekend away chaperoning 25 teenagers on a trip to the Oregon Relays, I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I managed to catch a awful head cold and am really finding it hard to tackle my to-do list. 

When I came home I found this package from Tonic Living waiting for me:


Can't wait to make pillows and a roman blind from these fabulous fabrics.

Also I am finished painting my $25 thrift store find. Here is a sneak peek as I am trying to finish the games room before I show you everything!


And a peek at a pillow I made using the this fabric I blogged about:


First, I need to clean the house and buy a few more sewing supplies.
