Another great benefit to going home and visiting my family was presenting my mother with a valance that I made using the same animal print fabric that she used to cover her vanity chair seat in their bathroom.
I would dare to say that my mom's not really an animal print kinda girl...but I think this print works in the room and I was pleased to be able to harnass some skills that I picked up back in my TS days in order to make a valance on the cheap.
I'm thinking about creating a tutorial for this project. It's so easy and only took me about 2 hours to make. Anyone interested?
In other crafty news:
I've been thinking about making a quilt for our master bedroom. Perhaps it's due to all the inspiration out there...I don't know, it just seems like something that I would like to tackle.
I am always inspired by the gorgeous quilts that fill my parents house. I believe they were sewn by hand by my great-grandmother. Unreal.
Look at those little squares! can you imagine?!
