The tree is down...what next?

The tree is down, making The season officially over in our house because the tree is down. The kittens are approaching a year old now but they are still pretty mischievous. Every where we turned, Emma was underfoot taking a last bat at her favorites before they were gone for good. Ginger Joe sat in the background observing....until the vacuum came out. He couldn't get outside soon enough.Now that I have the vacuuming done I have a fresh outlook on our decorating. New furniture is not on my agenda but new pillows would definitely give the living room a new look with little more than the cost of my time. I have a vast stash with numerous options! Remnants purchased with pillows in mind. Often when I am searching for just the right piece of fabric I can't find it. Nowadays I scour remnant bins for large pieces that are marked down at least 50%.  My inspiration is also sparked by trips downtown to Macy's or the Pottery Barn. This week while I clean up the sewing room I will take a look at what I have and get busy planning. I also have an abundance of trim, cording and other notions to have a lot of fun with this.

Does anyone else feel inspired to perk up the house when the decorations are down?

  1. My tree is down and my thoughts are turning toward a little stitching too. I haven't decided just what to make yet although I did buy some fabric for throw pillows way back in November!
