Roman blinds

My first attempt at Roman blinds!
I thought I would start with an easy one.. the bathroom!

Here is the quilt I made for my husband for a house warming gift.
We found this kit in our local quilt shop and we both fell in love with it.
So in typical fashion, with more than I can manage on my plate... I took on the daunting task of "whipping" together a queen size quilt while packing and staging a house!

Much to my surprise, my husband had no clue I had taken on the challenge until he opened his package at our "house warming" party :)

I think for a little while I will stick with my little one blankets and gifts! And leave the big ones to the professionals!

Seat rescuing

This was our first order of business when we moved in! It was so musty and made us cough. So the day we moved in I made a trip into our "local" fabricland!

Here is our kitchen bench seat before and after.
It is my first ever attempt at re-upholstering. I used a fake leather in a nice neutral color.
It took a little over and hour. It was close to wrapping a gift really... except using a staple gun instead of tape.
