Stitching, Painting, & of course Thrifting

Projects....Ahhhhhh.... Im getting a few things done when i can pull myself aways from the beautiful outdoors, or my favorite show.Surely I can hear "Grey's anatomy" over the sewing machine, so sewing will have to wait until after Survivor too! I promised to show some current wips (and thats about all they are at this point).Getting ready to put together a fab redwork quilt, with handstitched center blocks, just waiting on the fabrics to arrive!
This might be interesting, working with wool felt always makes me happy! New goodies coming soon,
O.K. heres one reason i have been busy. Im painting the entire house room by room. The kitchens done,my rooms done, and my ensuite bath finally!! Wood panelling everywhere!!! YUCK! Cant wait to show those pics! I wish i took pictures before of my bedroom which was Dark hunter bright green!!!ACKKKKKKkkkkkkk! (sorry to offend anyone with those walls , but every morning waking up to that dungeon on every wall gave me a migrane!LOL!
These are my new(scary I know) as you know me I rarely buy new! But I had searched high & low for a china cabinet so my breakables would be up high & out of babies reach, and wouldn't you know,15 months later, nothing to be found. So we drove 8 hours and went to Ikea & iIdecided to buy these 2 white bookcases & push them together! There is an option for doors on the bottom as well.

And of course a little thifting....look at this ruffled vintage crispy sheet...ahhhhhhhhh, I can feel some new stuff coming!
And last but not least. Isn't this baby wall quilt amazing? I cant wait to make one for Layne! Its got a spot for the name, birth & all that too. This book has the most precious redwork transfers. It smade by Leisure Arts & is called "Redwork for Baby". Cant wait to show you my transformations, and the ultimate antique score in the daylight!

You did a great job on your room. Don't you just love IKEA? There's none around here, so when I go to Baltimore I love to go and shop there.
Have a great weekend.
Love,
Terri

Redwork is beautiful! As is all needlework in my opinion - as I don't know how nor have the patience for it. So instead I just drool over everyone elses and sometimes I'm lucky to find a piece or two at the thrift store also.
I love the ruffled sheet you found - the pattern on it is so precious!!!
Thank you for your visit to my world yesterday :) I'm udderly behind the curveball this week in my replies.

Ang--I had that very same redwork for baby book in my hand yesterday--I came thiiiis close to buying it, but talked myself out of it! Sure are some gorgeous things in there, and I can't wait to see your wall hanging when it's done! The pics of your home look wonderful--I am totally loving the blue walls (just like my beautiful new staircase!! yeah!) It looks so fresh and pretty--and I think the 2 ikea cabs look really great put together like that.
Smiles, Karen

I'm so envious of the painting you're doing! My walls are still all white since moving in a year ago. I am dying to paint my living room and rip up the carpet (pretty floors underneath!). I really love your turquoise color in the dining room.

Sometimes you just have to buy something that's new.
