Nancy, I love your scooter. You look very sophisticated with it one! I bet that was a fun project.

Heather, your quilt looks so nice. Good luck with all your other projects.

I still need to finish my kids hats. I didn't get a chance to work on them over the weekend. Im hoping to print out a badge shape so I can use it as a stencil.

All your projects are wonderful. Always nice to see what someone else creates.
Heather, your quilt turned out great. Don't worry about anything. We all have little things here and there that get wonky! LoL!

Thanks everyone!


Now I'm trying to figure out what buttons to use to add a little something to my fingerless mittens and headband. I think too many options is a problem LOL!!

I got an itch to rearrange the Seattle Slew room. The bed was rotated and the chair and ottoman moved in. The 2nd sewing cabinet joined the first one for a bigger crafting surface.

Heather, I like the Paris looking button. That would be my vote.

Vanessa, you have been busy!

I'm still working on my kids hats lol. I am moving so SLOW. I don't know what my deal is this week. But I did get the felt cut and some of it sewn together. Hoping to finish at least one hat tonight. I want them done before we go sledding this weekend.

Vanessa,

I love that you added more work space. Rearranging things must be in the air. After my husband and I went to an estate sale last week, I redesigned/rearranged the top of the kitchen cabinets as well as the cornice shelf in the living room. It makes such a difference. I keep looking at it and am very happy with the freshened-up look. The only thing we purchased at the estate sale was a pair of nicely sized carved wooden chickens. My husband had wanted a barn quilt inside exactly like the one on the chicken house. We really should live in a barn!










Keep shining!

Everyone has been so creative .... lovely to see/read what you have been up too.

Well, that sweater I posted a while back is at the stage of mostly done. I need to stitch the collar and pockets ... block .... and it will be a done deal!



I need to put it a side for now because I'm not sure about it. It is a fitted sweater and I like loose sweaters. It fits nicely, I just would have liked it to be a bit looser. So before I even think about doing the drastic unravelling, I will set it aside ... I may change my mind ... or lose 20 pounds! lol

Carole,

Your sweater is elegant and classic. To unravel it would be sad.

Keep shining!

Natalie, I like the decorations you have on top of your cupboards. It has a nice farmhouse style to it.

Carole, your sweater looks great! I would hate to see you unravel all your hard work. Maybe you can use this sweater for special occasions.

I finished my daughters hat last night and she wore it sledding today. I got a couple compliments so that always makes me feel good. I'm going to finish my other 2 kids hats today. My oldest is so excited. I will finish his first.
Here is my little girl with her hat on!

Thanks! I finished the other 2 hats, but some how one of the badges is crooked! Lol so now I need to remove it and sew it back on straight. But now I'm finishing my swap partners heart before I move onto any other projects. I am hoping to finish some UFOs this year and hopefully finally be all caught up!

Pretty hats -- very colorful. Kids don't hold still long so no one will notice if the badge is a trifle crooked.

All of these creative and fun projects inspired me to work on an idea that I have had for a long time. My kitchen was redone in 1990 and not much has changed as far as the basics go. When I added my old gas stove from the 1930s that I found about 10 years ago, I headed down the path towards a more primitive and old timey look. My kitchen is small compared to most today so there is not much room to make drastic changes. To set the stage for why I did my latest project, here are some older photos of the key pieces of my new endeavors.

First the old gas stove. This photo was taken one Thanksgiving when I staged it to look like I had made my pumpkin scones in it. It gives you a sense of the little corner decor and that sort of old Farmhouse look I was after with a little wall quilt and a few other accessories.



Two years ago, I created my own little Buttery area with about 26 inches of space. In older homes, the Buttery was a storage place for equipment, canned goods, and dried goods for future use. Here is what I created to go along with the stove and the old timey look.



You kinda now get my direction so here is the latest effort. For many years, I have loved the look of old homes that preserved some of the old brick for various rooms. My favorite has been when that brick was in the kitchen. My kitchen has this weird configuration of the stove top which left this dead space behind it. Today, I would never do this sort of arrangement because it loses so much vital counter space which I could use. The corner behind the stove top is also dark and when I have tried to put interesting things behind it, they really don't show up well. Recently in a magazine, I saw where a woman found faux brick peel and stick contact paper and added it to her kitchen wall to fit better with her antiques and primitive style. WOW, I thought!! It never occurred to me that contact paper could give me the brick look I wanted. After searching on the internet, I found just what I wanted at Home Depot online with delivery to my local store. With about 5 hours and squeezing myself on the counter on top of the stove top, I finally got it all put up. Here is the result.



This paper also extends across the sink and counter area to the fridge. In reality, it is an outside wall that I am actually covering inside so the brick paper could, in effect, be a reality in an old house that was built with bricks. Well, if you use your imagination!! LOL!!

I love how this all turned out for $38 dollars and some hours of matching bricks on wallpaper and time working to get it all up properly. The other good thing is that if I dislike it later, I just peel it off and do something else. Originally, this area was painted a pale yellow to give it light, but as I said, that really never worked. The wall paper and a little jug lamp I had works so much better.

Here is an old Thanksgiving photo of a kitchen from the 1930s on an old Farm. I love this old photo and in some way, I am trying to recreate that feeling here in 2020.

Krista,
Those hats are so cute! I didn't notice the badge being crooked, still very cute anyway. Know what you mean about finishing some UFO's this year. The Valentine's heart for the swap was so much fun to make it inspired me to keep making heart stuff!

Keep shining!

Winnie,

LOVE everything ~ the stove, quilt, pottery, enamelware, jars, cookbooks...………...and that amazing "brick" wall paper! To look at it, it does look like rustic brick, the real stuff. You have accomplished the 1930's farmhouse look. The lady in the photo looks so contently blessed!

Keep shining!

Oh that's good that you guys can't tell it's crooked, but I think I'm still going to fix it. That's the OCD in me coming out.

Winnie, I love the look of your kitchen and the new brick. It really adds a nice touch to your kitchen. You have been a very busy bee!

Natalie, have you already sent your heart? I'm getting close to being done. I would love to send my package before the needed ship date.

Winnie, your kitchen looks like something out of a magazine. Your are really clever. I love older things about too, they have had a life and wouldn't it be fun to know where they have been. I like the picture you added too of the lady cooking, reminds me of a lot of the farm women that were in my small town when I was growing up. My Grandma always wore an apron. I never saw her in anything but a dress.
