Master Bedroom Renovation

I renovated our master bedroom during the summer!  We have lived in this nearly fifty-year-old house for fifteen years, and this is the first chance we’ve had to do work like this.  The carpeting was I-don’t-know-how-many-years old (dusty pink and gross), some of the wall corners had mold from before we had the roof replaced,… Continue reading Master Bedroom Renovation

Colourful Clothing Refashion Projects

Another thing I like to do is refashion clothing.  If you’ve followed me for awhile, you will know that I shop in thrift stores for clothing.  I can’t remember the last time I used retail for my clothing needs (except socks and underwear, though I am very slowly trying to change that.  Oh, and shoes. … Continue reading Colourful Clothing Refashion Projects

Fun Decor and Fabrics

I keep scrolling on the internet, reading stories about how one of my favourite bloggers/writers touched people’s lives.  She had a far bigger impact than I realized.  I sure will miss her blogs, books, and snarky comments online when challenged by power-hungry leaders who probably felt threatened by her bravery and intellect.  All that reading today makes me think,… Continue reading Fun Decor and Fabrics

First up… Continue reading Personal Sewing and Knitting Projects Again!

Embroidery, Sequin, and Bead Boho Bag Creations!

Remember this post where I showed you my embroidery-on-floral-sheet project?  Five months later, I am finished making this boho tote bag!  I had used that project to have some more fun with doing latticework embroidery, where you laid threads in a criss-cross pattern and then stitch x‘s over each crossing.  I aimed to cover many… Continue reading Embroidery, Sequin, and Bead Boho Bag Creations!
