They are both getting married in the next four months and they are sisters!! Family fun had by all.
I am sure you remember seeing an apron like the one on the right in a previous post but the one on the left is a new creation. I am sure there will be more to come in the future. I hope to make some that are out of bright fabrics...we will see.

I had these two dressers that were brown with brass knobs that just needed some freshening up in preparation for going in the orange room that was just painted. I think white will look so much better in there than brown, don't you agree! :)
Here is the two drawer dresser before the paint job.
Here is the dresser in process in the garage, good thing we had such great weather so I could sand and paint in the garage without sweating too much.
Here is the finished product in the room. The knobs don't look that different but they are brushed chrome. I hope to one day put colorful ceramic ones on but I am still trying to find what I like.
Here is the six drawered dresser before being transformed. Here you can see the shine of those dated pulls, circa 1070's.
In process sanding to be sure the paint sticks, good thing my handyman husband has a hand sander.
Finally here is the finished product. I just love this! It looks better in person and will look great in the orange room. It won't be living there until we rearrange some other things but it looks great in the guest room as well.

Here is a recap of that unproductive craft weekend.
I have a few more stationary items I want to make. still more to come. I got a nice paper cutter to help the process.
I have a tee-shirt quilt that I think I started 3 years ago, time to finish that. nope.
A pair of pants to hem. check.
Some pillows. fabric is cut...now time to sew.
There is always some organization that needs to go on. and on and on and on.

I have finally went out a few weekends ago and purchased the YUDU that I have been wanting. It was on sale (plus $50 Michaels card) so I went for it!
I have yet to take it out of the box but I am so excited to start using it. Here come tee-shirts, bags, onsies, etc. Now just to have some free time and some ideas of what to put on these tee-shirts, bags etc.
