A Simple Stitchery & More Makeover Fun

Hello....Almost at the end of the week! I have an exciting Saturday planned. A little "ME" time is in order. I am going with a couple of friends to the Log Cabin Prim store and another little antique store.....last time we tried to go to the antique store it was closed! :( We are hoping they are open this weekend! We will have some lunch out! Looking forward to it! And then Saturday evening out with another friend that I used to work with.....haven't seen each other in a while! Sooooo now you can see why I am so excited!

Just thought I would share a couple of projects that I worked on this week. I drew this little stitchery ALL BY MY LITTLE SELF! I know I know .... it's such a simple and easy pattern but hey.....I did it~

And I worked on another makeover. I got this little 7 drawer chest at the antique mall for $19.00 (not a steal of a deal) BUT I have shopped around and the little spice drawer cubbies that I have been looking at are SO expensive! I am pretty sure this used to be a jewlery box. But I thought why couldn't it be a little spice cubby? Here is the before picture~

And here is the after picture~
Not sure where it will go yet. But I am sure I will find a spot somewhere. Well, I guess that's about it for me. Today was a beautiful day! It was 74 degrees, the little boys got to play in the backyard and run off some energy! I had the windows and doors open...felt so good! I hope you all have a great weekend! Until next time. Take care. ~Sarah~

  13. Good Morning Sarah ~~
    Love the stitchery...good job on the design, an
    the stitching. And your little chest looks great, I have a few of them around the right near my kitchen hanging on the wall, I do put my jewelery in it. I always seem to leave the kitchen last when Im going out, so that's where I put my jewelery on..and where I remove it when I return home. I don't think any one would think to look in there. lol
    Have a wonderful "girlie" day and night. EnJoy !!
    Hugs ~ Connie xox

  14. I hope you had a great time today in Roca! :) And please share with us your goodies. I'm sure there was a great selection to oooh and aaah over.

    Your stitchery turned out great! And gotta love those "trash to treasure" projects. Your little chest looks great!

  15. looking for a petty quilt with some stichery and applique that would be nice for a wedding quilt. that is not the wedding rings.
