Just a few updates

I did it I did it I finally did it!! 
I have finished my pillows,...whew, thought I was gonna procrastinate for another year.
I figured it was time to put on my "big girl panties" and "just do it" and any other get off your butt quote can be added
Nothing amazing, or major talent, just plain ol straight stitch and stuff it.
I did do reversible to save me from making more pillows. 
Tadaaaaaa  :) 
Then after a healthy chat about my blunders I revamped the one wall a bit. 
Still kinda working on it but I do know the furniture placement is solid.
I think I just need to adjust the art placement.   
Also thinking of putting mats around the letters to beef it up a bit.
I also took the white thing off the stove, it looks better.
And I took the throw off the chair and folded it on the chest.
It's just gonna take some tweaking before I get it right.  I know something isn't right but can't see it.
 Ok enough of that.  I am excited that my daughter is allowing me to re-do her room.
We were going through her clothes before school and I suggested I could help her by re-designing her room for better storage and use.  She said yes (I've tried for years) and then I asked her what style she likes or wanted.  After many questions she's decided on "Geek Chic" with a touch of hipster.  This project I know will get done as I'm the one who's going to be doing it. 
I immediately jumped on the laptop and started gathering my ideas for the design and inspiration
I already started gathering, found a dresser to revamp and some action figures to turn into knobs.
I am very excited and I did kinda scare her with how fast it came about but I am just a bunch of ideas waiting to explode.


  1. Fantastic fabric choices! That was easy. lol
    I put things off for a long time and when I finally get the courage to start, it's NEVER as difficult as I made it out to be in my head :)

    The chairs next to the hearth, rather than on it was a great choice too.

  2. Oh, forgot to mention that I'm doing my daughters room too. Almost done, just need to decide on a window treatment and a rug for the floor.

    Your daughter is lucky to have you do her room.
