A pop of color!

Even though it snowed here in Edmonton today I am being optimistic in thinking spring is around the corner. I made this fabric banner last year some time and didn’t have any idea of where I was going to put it in my home. I made it all neutrals so I could put it anywhere and have it work. It has been up over the old window in our kitchen for quite some time and I love it there, but everything was cream and neutrals. I went to fabric land and picked up some sheer turquoise fabric to add to it for a pop of color.

The banner is very easy to make. I got fabric in the colors I liked, cut it into strips with fabric scissors, and knot them over some twine.

I love the little change! The best part of it all is when I get tired of the bright color I can just take them off! Sometimes it is lots of work being someone who needs change in their life often!


Doilies make my heart happy

Some people gush over puppies and kittens. Not this girl, I have a love for doilies! I made a banner and hung it up on my wall as a piece of art work. I had a roll of twine on hand and some doilies, and I started sewing them on to the twine. It wasn’t until I was two doilies in and remembered how much I dislike sewing, so I used fabric glue instead!
