Deanna gets crafty...

It’s been a while since I’ve written about what I’ve really been up to, besides glass of course.  About a month ago my friend Rebekah decided we were going to learn to sew.  I am usually up for trying most things, so I said sure.   Rebekah commandeered her grandmother’s sewing machine and we were off to Hobby Lobby.  After annoying the crap out of everyone in the fabric section and spending a lot more than we should have, we were armed and ready to make our first pillows.

Here is mine:



And here is Rebekah’s…otherwise known as the one my dog tried to steal.


We had a blast making them (even if it did turn out to be the most expensive pillow on the planet).  You see, this led to me wanting a sewing machine, which hubby got me for valentines day.  He’s so romantic.  No, seriously.  I really wanted it.  Which led to me needing a sewing table of some sort.

So we went to the used furniture store and found this:


Real pretty right?  Yeah, that’s what I thought.  So I decided to paint it and Greg (Mr. Crafty), suggested I cover the drawers with fabric.  This led to another trip to Hobby Lobby.  You don’t even want to know how much I have spent at this point.  Then Greg says he’ll line the drawers with cedar incense slats.  So far I have resisted ordering the cedar.  I think I’ll actually make something with my new sewing machine before I go that far.  Anyway, the desk is all dolled up and ready for for public viewing.  Whad’ya think?



It needs a matching chair doesn’t it?  Look out used furniture store, here I come.  :)
