Undercover – A futon covering tutorial

Posted by on Oct 31, 2009 in Uncategorized | One Comment

I posted about finishing this “little” project here, and I promised a tutorial. It’s really a very simple process, but it took a bit of time around here. We have, well, interruptions, you see. Here’s another peek at the finished product. We’ll pick up with photos again in a bit, but first you need to […]

A while back, maybe even last fall, I saw this activity that I knew would be perfect for our preschooler. Sometimes things work out even better than you think they will! Sometimes a boy just has to take a break and take pictures of his dad working so he can be, well, just like his […]

Yay! The day sofa covered

Who in their right mind buys an off white couch when they are 7 months pregnant. Ummm, yeah, me. My excuse, it was the perfect piece of furnitute to fill the gapping hole in our living room (we’d moved in to this house only a week prior…) and it only came in one color. I […]

His Favorite Chilly Weather Lunch

While Monday really wasn’t all that chilly here, there wasn’t a lot around for lunch, and I felt that we should eat at home. The preschooler was at Parent’s Day Out, which, as an aside, has the completely wrong name; I am usually home that day while he is out. The three of us left […]

Enjoying the Season

Hubby is finished with wedding season for this year; so we’ve enjoyed some much needed time together as a family for the last few days. Fall is settling in around here. The fall color has peaked, the last of the leaves will be off the trees soon, and we have a wonderful, fun, new carpet […]

Knitting right along

The October block for the SSS is finished. I chose to do something super simple this time both because I needed an easy project this month and because I felt that more simple would help balance out the final product. With all the transistions we’ve had around here lately, it was rather refreshing to work […]

Fall Flavored

Hubby put in his calendar, which I have access to for family coordination purposes, that I was to make Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Butter last Sunday for breakfast. This, by the way, was all new to me, and sounded like a fabulous idea! I didn’t manage to get it done in time for breakfast last […]

Vintage Blessings

I was blessed to participate in the Vintage Swap hosted by Heather; I have really enjoyed this one! I’ve loved visiting the blogs written by the other participants, and I’ve learned a lot from them. My partner was the wonderful Rachel. She sent me an extremely generous box full of vintage goodness, milk glass, two […]

So I did some sewing

We’ve been going through some transitions around here of late, and, as such, I have not had much time for anything other than parenting. We are finally starting to settle in to our next new normal. I am very thankful that I finished the boys’ costumes last week right before all of this started; it […]

We are at the peak of fall color here right now. Even a short drive to the park is colorful! The park is littered with fallen beauty. And while I marveled at it, the boys played, oblivious, to the fact that mama was snapping photos of the trees. I can’t help but photograph some of […]
