Living room is complete!

A couple of weeks ago, I had some friends come over.  At that time I realized I had only completed 1 of the 4 valences needed to complete my living room windows.  It kinda looked….awkward!  So in a fit of rage and time constraints I got up super early to try and finish the valences…only time had gotten away from me and I ended up only completing 3 of the 4 valences.  Then a couple days later finished the 4th.  Upon arrival of my friends they didn’t even notice that one was missing…HA!!  So it really wouldn’t have mattered, but wanted to present a completed living room to show them.



First quilt of sorts…

With all of the finishing touches of the living remodel almost to a completed status and a working like a maniac (somehow picked up a fourth job as adjunct math teacher for Minot State) I have had little time to myself for doing anything fun.  I started working on my first quilting project.  I started off with a small pattern.  I decided that charm packs are quite adorable with all the fabric choices and wanted to create a project which utilized them.  I found a charm pack at the local quilting store, Quilted Ceiling, and they had all kinds of pastels, browns, and teals.  This is the theme I kind of want to go for in my bedroom.  I decided to make a table runner, except I would be using it as a piece to go on top of my dresser.


Matching Table Runners

Although the napkins took quite a bit of time to create, I thought that just giving napkins to my bridesmaids might not be the greatest gift ever; therefor, I create a table runner from the Fav Crafts website.  I chose colors with which matched my original pattern of reusable napkins so that it would be a set.
