Coming back from a vacation always puts me in the mood to create something new and I’ve got all kinds of ideas. But I also wanted to clean up some old projects. I don’t have much storage–houses in Florida do not typically have basements and the attics are too hot to actually use. I have numerous baskets and trunks that I use for fabric storage tagged with the appropriate label. But those hiding places are overflowing and after doing a little inventory I decided that some of this stuff must be used before I buy anything new.
I had these matching fabrics which would really make a cute nautical tote bag for the beach. But I’m really not into making tote bags right now. And summer’s almost over.
I used this stuff years ago to make cushions and pillows for my sunroom which is outside of the main guest bedroom. (Sometimes it’s a bedroom, it’s more often Terry’s office and my workout room.)
I’ve had this rocking chair for 36 years! I bought it right before Jes was born. It was a dark pine with an awful orange upholstery which I thought was GREAT back in 1977. When I came to my senses a few decades later, I couldn’t strip the dark stain so just painted it white. My first piece of painted furniture that I did way back in the 90s!
