New Projects

I have already completed some projects that haven't been posted on here and started some new ones. I've started to tackle sewing again!

Here's what's been done since the last post:
  • I hung up two drawings that my Grandpa did while he was in SE Asia. They go really well in the dining area. See above.
  • I sewed a new cute dog bed for Daphne, and she loves it. No more stinky, ugly plaid, hello soft, fleecey pawprints and green!
  • Brentan made a doghouse for Daphne. (She is super spoiled) It is made with redwood, which makes it almost better than the regular house! It needs to be painted (prob. Wipeout blue!)
  • Reorganized the office. The big white Ikea bookshelf is now housed there, leaving the living room way more open and airy. And the office feels finished and is a productive space.

Here's what is in the works or soon to be started:
  • Framing some pretty pictures of Spring flowers from around our old apartment in Boston to hang above the bed.
  • Making a headboard for the bed. I got some cute fabric from the store and some molding to stain, so hopefully it will look really classy.
  • Reupholstering a mid-century chair from the Alameda flea market. I get some great green trellis fabric and am ready to start my first sewed furniture project. OK, maybe not. Maybe I need to mentally prepare myself more. It's really just making two new covers for cushions, but I'm scared they will look sloppy. Any tips?
