I made THE pleated purse

Do you remember my post HERE where I stated that I want to make this purse? Well I finally did it. I made the Pleated Purse. It took a month (I was busy selling my house and moving) but it's done.

Have a look see!!!

I learned some new things with this sewing project:

1. How to use piping
2. How to install (lack of a better word) magnetic closure snaps.
3. What fusible fleece is and and how to use it.

I think it turned out lovely!

Farm House Table

Once we get into the new house, our current table will not fit the new digs. So instead of spending mega bucks on a new table, we want to make our own. Enter Anna at Knock-Off Wood. She has the perfect plans for a farm house table HERE. I'm also thinking of making some BENCHES for the sides and chairs for the ends. We'll see how creative we get...

Ivory Homes really knows how to wow people. The layout of this house was great and the decorating was fabulous. The decorators used color well and the accessories were awesome. The small details are what makes a house great.

#2 Bellevue Colonial

This house is a craftsman style home. I loved the outside. One feature in the house that I loved was the jack and jill bathroom in between the two bedrooms.

Sorry if the pictures are blurry. I was using my cellphone as a camera.
