My little family is really excited to be moving in a few weeks. We are going to turn the basement at the new house into a family room and so I have been mentally designing and arranging all kinds of things. We will need to buy a new sofa set once we get moved in, but it may take a little time to find what we want and we want the space to be comfortable. I have an easy chair and my rocking chair that will go down there for now. I wanted a big floor pillow too. I couldn't find anything that I remotely liked anywhere so I decided to make my own. I bought a huge pillow form. 45"x35". I also bought some really pretty batik fabric. I woke early this morning and cut the fabric and made the pillow cover.
Just one more thing to show before we go down into town to have some fun. I made this plastic bag holder for work. We go through an unbelievable amount of plastic bags. We use them to send dirty clothes home. I take care of babies in a nursery.
It is hanging from my kitchen cabinet at the moment. Turned out well. If anyone wants to make one let me know and I will post a tutorial. It only took about an hour and a half to make. You can't see what a mess our kitchen is right now either. The whole house is. But instead of frustrating me, we are so excited to be moving out of this tiny place that having boxes everywhere is a small thing to deal with.
Now we are off. We are going to buy my husband some new shoes then we are going downtown to the big library and the pedestrian mall. There is always something fun to do there and it is going to be in the 90's again today. Have a fabulous Sunday! Talk to everyone soon.
P.S. I forgot to take photos of the things I made for Sue in the Jubilee swap. Duh. She was lovely and posted pics. Hope over to see her blog. She is amazing with needle and thread. Really amazing.
