Time to Recover

What is it about Fall that kicks me into full craft mode? This year in particular I am loving my domestic upgrades. I have been itching to recover our dining room chair seats for the past 2 years. I finally found a fabric with a print that I like and a pattern that will camouflage my kid's food spills. First weekend - 4 down, 2 to go! Costume season is right around the corner so I've got to switch gears after the final 2.

Calling all cocktails

I recently took a class at Modern Domestic to learn how to do paper-piece quilting. The process was very technical, but the results were astonishing. This tablerunner took a good week of evening craft-time. Now I can kick up my feet and rest my cocktail without leaving rings on my table.

I used this leaf pattern Charley Harper print for the backing which will mask stains from my sloppier guests and small children.
