I won! I never win. But...I won!
I won a really cute bag pattern from Stacy at Stacy Sews. Stacy's blog was the first blog that I ever followed so I think it is especially apropos that hers was my first blog giveaway win. Stacy has some very creative ideas and does a great linky Thursday post each week. Hop over there and check it out!
Thanks Stacy for the adorable pattern!
But before any sewing or cooking can happen at Casa Feasts and Fabrics, we have to finish up the painting in my new "roommate's" (AKA my daughter's) room. We are taking out the teen look and moving to a more sophisticated - we hope!- young adult room that can morph into a guest room when she saves enough for her own place.
Here is a sneak peek at the before pics:
The cutesie border has to go...
Painting over the chalkboard...Not so easy.
We are doing most of the painting after work, after working out, after dinner, so between 8pm and 11pm. We've finished the chalkboard half of the room and are working to get as much done of part 2 before the weekend flies by.
Don't let the smiles fool you. Weeknight painting...not my favorite.
