These have all been on my list of things to do for a long time. It's great to have them checked off. I finished painting this guest bedroom a lovely shade of spring green. My boys are sure to tease me that it's another Easter egg colored room, but I like it. It's a perfect compliment to the creamsicle whirlygiggles quilt so I threw that on the bed. It needed something, so I made some pillows to match.
I did some straight line freehand loopy quilting on the pillows to match the quilting on the quilt.
Redid my sewing machine cover to fit the new machine. Gotta keep dust away from my baby.
Reupholstered my stool and chair that I use in my studio. I used Michael Miller's mirror ball dots in orange and green. Love that fabric. Many of you have emailed and asked for info on how to upholster. I'm clueless about upholstery except to cut a piece of fabric bigger than the seat, flip it over, pull it taut and staple the hell out of it. Upholstery 101...take that, Martha.
We're almost up to 200 folks in the 'Joy in the New Year' challenge. Can't you hear the sewing machines buzzing? Lots of finishes are happening....lots of happy people. It's a good thing!
