Two more projects checked off my list!

I got busy today and did a LOT of cleaning and organizing in the spare bedroom/booth storage & staging room. I still don't have the bed uncovered, and that could be problematic since my mom is coming down to stay with us on the 8th for a few days to take a glass fusing class. I still have 8 days to work on it right?

I'll work on it tomorrow for a couple of hours, and hopefully I will be done. I just hope my dad doesn't come too, because then I'd have to clean off the other bed too ( I have 2 twins in the room)! LOL! Just kidding! I hope he does come-I don't get to see either of them nearly enough. I'm sure he won't though-he hates to be separated from his upper peninsula.

In addition to making massive head-way in the room, I finished a couple of easy projects. My second gossip bench is done as well as a cute little footstool. I realize I didn't use vintage fabric, and that may limit the buyers who might be interested in it, but I was thinking it might appeal to someone who likes both old and new. We'll see! The other one has been in the booth almost a month now, and so far it's still there.


  1. Love the combination of new and old. Great selection of color and print. And good luck with the projects!

    1. Thanks Christina! I hope some else likes the combination enough to buy it-hopefully quickly!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Is that a new banner/header on your blog?! Love it!!!
    I think the phone bench is perfect! Love the colors and fabric.

    1. Hi Deb!
      YES! It is! I pulled out some of my tablecloths and took some pictures. It's time to thin the stash down again-I keep looking for some in your colors and sizes, but so far, I haven't been very successful!

      Were you able to make the one I sent you work?

  3. I like the combo on the gossip bench! I don't think old or new fabric makes a difference if someone really loves it.
