September So Far!

I am a little later in writing this blog then I thought I would be, time seems to fly, and I am getting busier.

So we decided to have a last Hurrah for the summer and head to the lake with my sister and her family.  We had a great time!

The Lake


Hannah was a favorite with my great niece and nephew!  They are all ready to go for a boat ride.  It was a little rainy, but once we were all ready the rain had stopped and we headed out to do some tubing.

Ian took the first ride and We tried our best to lose him, but he held on pretty good.

Next Raden wanted to give it a try, so Hannah went with him and they had a blast!  They were a great team.

In the mean time, this little cutie pie, hammed it up in the boat.

What a Cutie!

She really knows how to play to the Camera!


After the day at the Lake we went and visited my Grandma, who is a great-great grandma and was celebrating her 91st birthday!


Now back to the workroom!

I made some more pillows!

Framed Pillows


These are Framed pillows with a mitered border, micro-cording, and twisted cording on the outer edge.

The next weekend we installed a couple of cute little valances.

Carolina Valance

This is the one I had shown before hanging off the side of my workroom table.  Doesn’t it look much cuter in the window.  The customer loved it.  It is a Carolina valance, that has been altered.

I also got pictures of the cushions I had made to match, on the chairs.

Kitchen Chair Cushions

This is why you would want custom cushions for your chairs, there are 2 types of chairs, so 2 different cushions to fit each chair.  A template is made, so each cushion custom fits the different chairs.

We also installed this darling swag valance in this lovely half bath.

Swag Valance

Simple valances that can just add that extra touch to finish off the room.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to be back sooner.

If you would like a cute valance or pillow to complete a room, drop me an email and I would be glad to help!

    Looks like you had a great time at the lake!

    Your swag valance looks great! They are so hard to dress at installation, but yours is done very well.
