Randomness, The Patchwork Princess & Cold Eats


Here from the C&T blog? Check this post out for the links to the Quilt Remix preview.

Man, it’s really, really (really)’ windy outside.

Seattle freaks out about impending snow just as much as Raleigh and (the other Washington) DC.

Quilt Remix is now in stock at Amazon. Woohoo!

How in the world did I run out of both sizes of envelopes on the same day?

The Patchwork Princess

Maeve really wanted a say in how her new room was decorated. Understandable. But she wanted bubblegum pink walls. So we compromised. A dozen mini quilts line the walls plus some new patch-y pillows and window valance. The Little Lady is quite pleased.




And I still have a bazillion or so yards of the fabric left.

Cold Eats

The dining room felt cold, uninviting and was a horrible color so I painted it a much more pleasing color a couple weeks ago. I love the color but it still feels uninviting. Sean doesn’t want anything to block the view (understandably). I’m at a loss as to what to do.


The upside? At least it’s clean! The dining room at least. Maeve’s room? It’s since been destroyed by a 6-year-old who likes to play with everything at once.

  1. I think some stationary panels would look great… the Southern Living decorator patterns are phenominal, I would check those for some inspiration!

    I love Maeve’s room! Such a sweet place for your sweet girl! She’ll thank you later for putting a dent in her bubblegum pink plans. As for the dining room…giant sunburst-y mirror?|B000TGYXNA&CPNG=home%20decor&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=B000TGYXNA&ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001 Warm looking table runner? Good luck!!

    I agree. My mom always makes the rods extra long so the drapes cover mostly the wall and only 1 inch of the window – it makes you window look bigger too. Or maybe just a super tall plant in the corner or on a plant stand would warm things up. You have a beautiful home.

    I am living in Iowa now but grew up in Gig Harbor (across the Narrow Bridge from Tacoma). I get all homesick reading your blog now. 🙂 I love WA. And we do freak out about snow – two hour delays for the smallest sprinkle of snow. Loved it as a kid. 🙂
