Look what I made!
Last night we had 3 other church couples over to our monthly game night. We had a blast and I stayed up way past my bedtime....10:30pm! Ha-ha. I am going to be tired today. But I only ate two small pieces of pizza without the crust and I am proud of that.
I had someone recently give me about 100 cookie cutters. I kept my favorites and I am donating the rest to our church yard sale next month.
Last night I made owls, squirrels and mushrooms. The owls are for my children's church class on Sunday (I always bring a snack & an ice cream float) and we had the squirrels and mushrooms last night.
I also made chocolate covered potato chips and strawberries. These went FAST!
I cannot remember if I posted a photo of the ottoman my husband & I re-covered a few weeks ago. We got it for free (and a matching chair and a half) while on vacation in Lancaster last year. We loved the large size. My husband put it on wheels and we recovered it in a gray upholstery fabric. Here is the original fabric (on the chair) and the upholstered ottoman.
Of course that fabric only lasted about a year since we eat at the ottoman almost every night.
This time I wanted something that would wipe off easily. My husband wanted something "rock and roll" and hip (if you know me, you will easily know that I am NOT hip in any way). Here is what I came up with:
This time I covered the entire ottoman with a vinyl cover I made. I'm not sure you can see it but here is the ottoman with the cover:
I had some left over fabric and I made these two pillows for the bed.
And something I am in love with right now (but of course I didn't make)...Dandelions! I know that people hate these but I love them. I love the yellow brightness and then when they turn into big puff balls. Our 2 acres are covered.
