Are you a quick sew-er or a slow sew-er?? I am a slooooowwwwww sew-er. No matter how I try to speed things up, it seems to take me forever to make a few blocks. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that my chair is uncomfortable so I'm always finding some excuse to get up and stretch..... and I like to press my blocks more than I like sewing them.... is that weird??? I just like the satisfaction of getting a seam nice and flat. I confess: I am a very aggressive presser!! And I'm addicted to my steam setting!! So anyway, I made these adorable little blocks the other day.
I love the beautiful photography that you see in magazines (hence, my addiction.) As if the magazines weren't enough, now I can just go the the Better Homes and Gardens website and see more.... It's a dangerous thing....
I want to do this to the spare bedroom:
And I think this would look great at the beach house (living room is the next room to get done):
And I am a sucker for repainted scruffy old cabinets AND pears, so, yeah:
Daughter and hubby decided that my blog needed an updated look, so recently they have been busy working on a blog makeover. Yesterday, daughter showed me what she came up with, and it looks so great.... she spent a really long time on it, and she is so, so talented. It amazes me what she can do at the age of 16- and she is completely self taught. I am gushing, but really, my kids just knock me over with their creativity sometimes.... I think the "new and improved" blog will make its appearance at the end of this month.
