Home Decor

We're finally remodeling some rooms in our house. So, I decided to get started on the sewing part of it. I made curtains and placemats for my breakfast nook (and curtains for my kitchen, but no pic of those). Now we've got to paint and purchase some new chairs for the table and a few other small things. I absolutely love these green/brown color combos. All fabric is Robert Kaufman.

Four placemats. I decided to do some patchwork to practice for a quilt I plan on making for Lindsey's bed. Judging by the time it took me to make these placemats, a quilt is going to take forever!! Right now I'm thinking large squares for the quilt...

I need some fresh fruit for my dish.

Curtains! Stripes in greens, browns and white with a green with brown dot valance. I also made a matching valance for my kitchen window.
Now I need to get a picture to go on the empty wall. I'm looking for a picture with a green pear...any suggestions?

And, while I was in the mood for patchwork, I decided to make a checker board to match the decor. I've still got to get some checkers for it...I'm thinking wooden and painted brown and white.
Next on my list is to sew some coasters and patchwork pillows for the adjoining room. Luckily I bought a bolt of each fabric, so I've got plenty to play with!!

Take care!

  1. That looks lovely! I'm really wanting to try a patchwork project but I'm not sure if I have the patience for anything that doesn't work up fast lol. Great job it looks wonderful!

  2. Wonderful job on the dining room decor! Love the checker board and placemats...lots of work, but they turned out lovely. I followed the link from Craftster. Your little one's a cutie!
