our house is really starting to come together and feel like a home. i love having a dining area again. i like being able to sit at the table and have dinner. reminds me of when i was younger, especially since it's the same table i sat at growing up. we're almost done painting the bedroom, still need to pick up a bit more paint, we also have some trim work that needs finished up, but we'll do that like weekend warriors! yesterday i used the extra fabric from the pillows i made to update the tv cabinet, an ottoman and a picture frame.
This week I'm hoping to launch an online store for my creations. News to come of course! :) Not sure if I'm going to do Artfire or Etsy, still weighing my options of per item vs flat rate...it's hard when you're not sure if it's gonna take off, be kinda steady or just be plain slow....I think anything would be better than nothing, so I'm just going to go for it.
The Big Stitch is coming up a week from Saturday. I asked Deb if I could help out so I'm making some hats at home to donate. My goal is to make 20 and I've got 3 made so far....
