Well, Spring is here. Equinox or no, I have swapped out all my peppermint smelling goodies (soaps, oils, etc.) for citrus scents throughout the house. For me, that is all I need ot make it official. I am still working on my raindrops throw pillow for my couch. However, since my living room is done in cool, mostly neutral colors, it is just not as appealing to me as something with a little more BAM!COLOR! Since all of my downstairs is decorated in the light blue / brown/ off white color scheme, I decided that the kitchen could be the place that would add some color and pep. The kitchen needs updated, but it is just not possible right now. So instead, I'll give it a facelift. I've picked out some fabric to make some new kitchen curtains, and some yarn to make various items throughout the room. The first thing I'm going to make is a new rug to put in front of the sink. I'm very excited about this, more than I probably ought to be. These two items will set the stage for my kitchen's facelift. Here is the fabric I picked for the valence, panels, and the yarn for the rug. I can't wait to get started on (and finish) this project!
Another project I have just started is for my daughter's upcoming seventh birthday. Here's a sneak peek at a piece of it.
