Fabric Friday {Fabrics for Under $10 Yard) + WIP

 Before saying goodbye for the weekend I thought I would share with you what's in progress.

FOR THE HOME:

  • My custom window treatments for my kitchen are completed!  This was a good month long process getting the right design.  They should arrive at my door the first or second week of June.  SO excited.   If anyone asks what the heck these are, I'm not gonna dish until I install them.  :)  sorry!
 
  • My rug for the kitchen is on backorder, and it should arrive the first week of June.  I haven't made any mention of ordering it, but here is a snapshot of the rug.

  • Still debating what to do with the back of my kitchen island.   I have to wait until that baby above enters the room.  
  • I painted my living room.  I LOVE it!  It is so bright and airy now.  I use to get depressed in my living room.  My living room is the next room to tackle once the kitchen and Owen's room is done.
  • Speaking of Owen's room, I purchased fabric to slipcover his rocking chair.  I think I have been talking about his chair for a good 8 months now.    All I have left to do for his room is slipcover the rocker, sew a pillow, hang pictures, and do a few little odd end things.  And then my friends, I will be ready for the final reveal.  :)
  • I reupholstered his ottoman.  I will share that with you at a later date.  I'm calling it the "ghettoman" because, quite frankly, it's ghetto.  It was my first reupholstering job.  You'd think the ottoman would be the easiest thing to reupholster.  It wasn't too bad, but I'll wait to get into the details later.  In final words let's just say it looks waaay better than it did before, which you can see here.


SEWING:

  • Oh my word.  I am starting my second quilt, and I plan on listing it for sale.  It will be very BRIGHT and girly, hence why I am selling it.  I just loved the fabric too much, and I just HAD to have it!  This quilt will be much easier than my last one!  I'm doing hardly any cutting on this one, but I will be doing lots of top stitching.  After that, I want to make blocks.  They look like so much fun!
  • I am working on a few gifts for my nieces, but I can't really share pictures of that with you until they are done.
  • I've completed my giveaway, which will start on Monday, but I am working on some new giveaways for later dates.  How much fun is that?!
  • I'm making zippered pouches to help my friend out, and if you can sew, you should take the opportunity to serve.  :)  You can read more about that here.


 So I think it's safe to say that I have been one busy chica, but I haven't touched my craft room yet and Matt comes home tomorrow night.  Boy, he will be severely disappointed.  If only I could squeeze in a few more hours in a day.   I should clarify.  Kid-free hours.

Not particularly a fan of this print as a whole below, but I think if the patterns were cut out, it could have potential.
