I have been working hard to get some projects completed. I love it when something can be crossed off my to do list. There are many times that I get carried away and start too many projects and can't complete them all.
This is the chair we purchased for our daughter's room. It is the final piece of furniture she needs. Now she just wants some little extras~some candles and artwork for the empty space over her bed. This lovely chair is from one of my favorite places~Ikea. I crocheted a cover for the cushion that came with the chair. She chose the yarn and color.
The blanket I crocheted so she can snuggle with it on her bed. It almost feels like terry cloth. It is so soft and heavy.
There was a wonderful pumpkin craft at One Pretty Thing and I fell in love with it when I saw it. I have wanted to try it since I laid eyes on it but this month has been so busy that it took me forever to get out and purchase the supplies. I finally made it to the craft store and picked up all the goodies.
This is the before pumpkin. I could not find a plain white pumpkin that wasn't too big. They were all sold out by the time I got there.
Here is the after pumpkin. It's a little different from the tutorial I saw but I love it. It looks so good sitting on top of my old books on my bookshelf.
The kids and I went on a nature walk last week and collected leaves for this great project I saw on Sara's blog. It is fall batik. It is made a little differently that traditional batik but was such a fun project with the kids.
This one is my dd's~who does not want her picture posted so she hides her face~She chose these colors to match her room. We will be looking for a frame to put it in and then hang it over her bed.
My ds is not camera shy and loves to have his picture on my blog. Isn't he a cutie? Love those dimples.
His batik is as bright and cheery as he is. Love that giant oak leaf we found. Isn't it great?
Thanks Sara for sharing that great project. We had so much fun working on this Friday.
Finally, the last project. I completed new curtains for our bathroom. The fabric was free so they were a real bargain. I am happy with how they came out. I just cut and sewed~no pattern. I was a little nervous about how they would turn out but they came out great.Crossing these projects off my to do list make me feel better. Not so many things crying out to be finished. Now the holidays are just around the corner and I need to get busy working like Santa's elves. I have an adorable top that I would like to crochet for my dd. It will be such a surprise for her if I get if finished. I can't wait to show you~it's absolutely adorable. I think I may need to add one to my to do list after Christmas.
