12DaysOfHGTV and Further Work on "My" Craft Room Across the Street!

As I've told a few people, I just can't take the chaos of my house sometimes plus I thought I should spend more time with my mom. So for not really unselfish reasons I asked my mom for a room of her house. She freaked when I moved out most of the furnishings but she's coming around. So I decided to start small and cover the throw pillows on the couch. I also covered a bulletin board with burlap. Although it's just temporarily tacked on at moment I think I'm going to dress it up a bit...

But here's my progress so far. And I saw that HGTV was encouraging people to go to Joann's and buy some fabric to do some quick decorating around the holidays and it was called 12DaysOfHGTV or 12DaysofHome? Let me check again....

Actually it's both #12DaysofHGTVHOME oki doki. So keeping that in mind I bought these 4 peices of fabric at Joann's last week up in Chicago.





Aren't these beautiful? But they were kind of expensive. So I found these other fabrics that were more in line with the colors I wanted that were reduced from $9.99 to $5.99 a yard and now I can't honestly say if they're HGTV or not? So ADHD of me I got distracted by them and lost sight of the goal. But I'm happy with so there! So I made this pin for Pinterest and for their contest and for Ame who asked me to collaborate on a Sewing Projects board with her. Ame is just starting to sew.


So this is how I spent an hour or so to stay awake between 10:30 and New Years. Happy New Years everybody!

Maybe tomorrow I'll paint room and finish the bulletin board.
