Why should you be flipping out? Because it's Friday- official day to goof off at work. I love Fridays! The only thing that is sinking my Friday down a bit is that I have my class tomorrow morning. It takes a big chunk out of my weekend- but on the positive side- at least I was able to take a class this semester and I could work it into my work schedule.
Since it is a Friday, and those of you at work are officially not doing much work since all your co-workers and even your boss have taken the day off or left early, I thought I would share some of my bloggy friends with you. Head over to see doe-c-doe to help her vote on what color to paint her owl collection. I love that she takes these little statues and figures and paints them. It seems so simple, yet I never would have thought of that. She is a vintage goddess by the way- tons of cool craft books, embroidery transfers, and finds are shared on her pages.
I recently found this great blog don't call me becky. I just love the name of her blog and it turns out that she is really interested in fun modern looking quilts.
I also am loving the fun rectangle/ crazy stripe quilt that Tallgrass Prarie Studio has created from $1 thrifted squares. It is so wonderfully original. I could go on for days about all the wonderful blogs I have been reading. I will try to post some more next week.
I have been very busy sewing things that I can't quite show you yet. So instead I will show you things that I have created sometime last year. Rag quilting was one of my first favorites. I loved that you didn't have to be exact with your seams or stitching.
These suckers last forever too.
Here is a wonderful cupboard that I scored for $20. I found it at a perfect time too because we had been living in a house that had no kitchen storage. It is on my list to be refinished. I think it would be great in a gray shade with turquoise inside.
The inside houses all my crazy kitchenware. I have been collecting lusterware for a while now, in fact it was one of my very first collections.
