No Sew Pinch-Pleat Curtains

I’ve shared a couple tutorials over the years for how to make your own curtain panels {recently here }. Those were simple to make but can take a few hours to complete. I recently discovered how to use hem tape to make your own curtains and I don’t think I’ll ever sew them again. I had […]

This post is sort of a two-for-one…Happy Monday:)  I’m sharing the quilt I finally finished {and love!} and a sneak peak of the nursery!  Mike assembled the crib last week and it is absolutely beautiful.  We also have the top half of the walls painted and bought our supplies for the wainscoting yesterday so we […]

Sorry for my lack of posts this week, friends.  I’ve been battling bronchitis with a fever that I just can’t quite kick and my booty has been plastered to the couch pretty much since last Saturday.  Hopefully I’ll get over this soon and be back in action this weekend to wrap up some big projects […]

After taking in consideration from your thoughts on the two different cushions that will go on our new bench, I decided to go with the piping edge.  It has a more casual look {which we are going for} and, after reading a comment about crumbs possibly being an issue in the tufted look {thanks, Corrie!}, […]
