Blue Windows Bunnies

I made my boss a bunny as a part of her birthday gift and she asked if I wanted to sell some in the store.  She thought they would sell so I made 7 in 3 days!  The first four sold within 6 days of being in the store.  It was so much fun to make a little extra money and be able to contribute to her business. :)

Easter Bunnies

This is my latest project...Easter Bunnies.  I originally just made one for Micah's Easter basket.  But then I decided to make one for my friend's baby shower, one for my boss/friend, and one for Micah's cousin for Easter.  I embroidered the recipient's first initial on the back of them...just above their right leg (not shown).  Welcome Spring! So happy you are here...

The Chair of Hope

I was feeling a little discouraged a couple of weeks ago because there is so much I would LOVE to do around our place, but we just don't have the finances to do it.  BUT maybe we can after all!!!!  A few Sunday mornings ago Micah was sick so we didn't go to church.  I had to work that day, but before I went in we decided to take Micah on a walk outside.  As we were leaving we walked by a few dumpsters and sitting outside was this sweet little old chair.  I was SO excited I ran and grabbed it right then and put it inside of our door until we got back from our walk...after all, I didn't want someone else to take it!! It seriously made my whole week.  It was better then buying a chair because I got to creative and make it my own.  Thank You Lord!!!!!  I know it was from Him. :)  Here my the process of renewing the chair:

This is how it looked when I picked it up

Took off the upholstery and bought the materials I needed for the project: Sandpaper, Spray Paint, Material, Quilt Batting

Sanded the chair down

Primer (Had to relocate to my parents backyard)

Taadaaaa! All finished (with some help from my amazing parents!)

It now sits in our bedroom. Loved. <3

Baseball Sign

After spending some serious time on this project, the burlap baseball sign for Micah's room is finished! I had just enough embroidery floss...so glad because I really don't enjoy bringing Micah to the fabric store unless I REALLY want to go. :)
