The close up of the decor I made:
What do you think? I am thinking of painting my sewing table. It was around a 25 dollar purchase from a thrift store! My parents found it and then made a new cutout to fit around my machine! I also want to get a brand new chair...or paint and recover the one I have.
Another awesome thriftstore find of my Grandma's was this little rocker minus the trim and cushions. She gave it to me to fix up for my daughter! I added the trim with staple and glue guns. I then sewed new covers for the rocker. I think the bottom pad that came with it isn't substantial enough so I might make a thicker one...but that will require finding more of that print. So we shall see.
Here are a few other things I have been doing this week:
Braiding hair! This is the first major success I have had at anything remotely complex. I am more of a basic three part braid....anything beyond that or adding hair and I am all thumbs. I sat down with an idea and it finally worked. Down it hung nicely and naturally over her shoulder. She wanted it up though.
I found the cutest chalkboard stickers at a craft store in town along with liquid chalk Aren't these fun looking now? I really want to get jars and do it in my craft room too.
I have also been cooking and trying things on pinterest. I found an awesome pizza corona and decided to make one. So simple and awesome! Next I think I would like to try making the Braided Nutella Bread.
I did get my dresden plate quilt 100% top stitched and the top part of the binding sewn on! So all I am doing now is hand stitching and then will get back to quilting more. I refuse to touch any other quilt until it is finished.
