Journey Home

Tuesday, April 5, 2011


I am loving this spring weather!! When I packed my winter coat and sweaters away in mid-March I vowed they would not be coming back out. It is the principal. I really think spring may be here ! Positive thoughts. I am ready to bring out the flip flops....but, the thought that I just might be wearing them in the snow is a little too much. I only wish that spring lasted a little longer. I really think that it is my favorite time of year. But, then Rich will remind me that I say that at the beginning of each season. Guess that is why we live in the midwest. This little girl is growing! I have been watching her 3 days a week for the past 3 weeks. She is such a happy little baby! She wakes up smiling. She has the sweetest temperment. She makes me laugh. She is such a little ham. I think she looks so much like her Daddy's baby pictures......and then she smiles.........she is SOOOO her beautiful momma! Almost 5 months already! Does not seem possible that it was a year ago April 1 that we were told that she was coming!! She is at that age where she is changing weekly. I am just so thankful that I get to spend so much time with her! I have been putting my sewing machine to work. I made this little skirt last week. I tried it on her....perfect!
So, tomorrow when I go....I am taking this one that I sewed up last night.
I have also been making flower pins for the up-coming sale

and another Bible third in 3 weeks. Once I again on a roll......I love teaming up the different fabrics I have.
A couple of before and afters. This is an ottoman in our den. Love the print but it really did not go in my apple green den.
Voila! Slip-cover to the rescue. Love polka dots.
This is a piece that is ready for pick up. The client was going back and forth between cream and vintage green.
So, she is getting both! After priming I painted it a vintage green followed by cream. Then distressed it so that some of the green is showing through. Finished it off with a set of vintage green glass knobs and a little "doo-dad" distressed green on the bottom. A very sweet piece! I hope that she likes it.
