I am re-starting my blog... again... because of all my house projects. To celebrate the occasion, I renamed my blog and gave it a face lift (If only it was this fast and easy in real life, eh?).
My husband and I just bought a house at the end of 2010 and I am clearly preoccupied with decorating it. My rules?
I absolutely adore finding furniture pieces at thrift stores and on Craigslist and refinishing them to be my own. I also love love LOVE to put my sewing skills to use to make our house a home.
Sewing patterns from the fabric store are great, but I love following design and DIY blogs and using tutorials. They are easy to follow, usually have REAL step by step pictures, and, best of all, are FREE FREE FREE. If I make something with a tutorial, I will share the link!
Tomorrow I have a LOOONG date with my sewing machine. On the menu? Laptop case for my new 'puter (thanks to my handsome hubs) and pillows galore for the living room and bedroom. I will upload in the evening!
Until then, here are my recent projects: Re-purposed table cloths (read: table runner and decorative towels, tutorial from a FREE library book) and shower curtains (re-usable shopping totes).
