A weekend project

What did everyone do this Memorial Day weekend? 

I thought I’d share a bit of mine with you.  Eric and the kids went to visit my in-laws; I am on a deadline for work and needed access to my internet and graphics tablet, so I stayed behind.  In the spirit of biting off more than I can chew – a trait I undoubtedly inherited from my mother – I decided to redo our daughter’s room as a surprise.  Between running upstairs to cover both the room and myself in paint (I am a sloppy painter) and running downstairs to do design work, it has been a crazy weekend.

It is still incomplete.  I didn’t have time to sew bedding, so I purchased Amy Butler bedding from Bed, Bath, and Beyond.  I am going to eventually supplement that with accessories in my Veranda line using the pink, green, and aqua prints, but Caitrin and I will work on that together.  I want to cover the white lampshade I bought with the green and aqua fabrics in the line.  I think Town Square will look perfect at the end of the bed when I get it back from Robert Kaufman.

They are coming home in a few hours.  I can’t wait. 

Back to work – thanks for letting me share!

Happy sewing!
