I have worked practically full time all summer, so it's a wonder that I've accomplished anything on my to-do list. I always have high hopes of completing some major projects around the house in the summer, but I have decided to take pleasure in the little accomplishments this year.

finished curtains made from tablecloths
kitchen curtain

did some rearranging of accessories
got those wall words hung - thank you Kelly
went fabric shopping with Kelly--in a factory
kelly fabric

fun fabric
and in a barn behind the factory
it was fun and different
check out Kelly's finds
barn fabric
my purchases at $4 a yard
got to dream about my next sewing projects
the tapestry may cover the dining room chairs
the bird fabric may be Roman shades or shower curtain
the fringe fabric may be curtains or pillows
$4 a yard! unbelievable
No pictures but I also had fun going to Hobby Lobby (three times), T.J. Maxx , Office Max, Home Depot, and the tile store. I didn't have fun frosting Tessa's French door, but at least all the windows in her room are done--well almost. I have a few embellishments to add.

What a lot of fun you have had so far! That fabric shop looks so fun! I love all of the fabric you found. And what a great idea to make drapes out of tablecloths. So clever!

Love the verse (I can do all things...) and that curtain underneath it! GORGEOUS!

And that yellow plate with the bird? SO cute! Did you get it at Pier one?
