We finally finished painting my son's bedroom, a project started two years ago, then he had second thoughts...I finally talked him into letting us finish it and see how he liked it when it was all done, with a promise that we'd repaint if he didn't like it in the end. He does like it now that it's done - phew! Now we can move on to the next painting project - the living room/kitchen area. I've painted about 6 different squares on the wall, but can't quite find a shade I like. We have a cookie booth at Lowe's tomorrow, so I think I will look there and see if something else catches my eye.

On the sewing front, I had 4 1/2 hours in the sewing room. I worked on transferring Girl Scout patches from Junior sashes to Cadette sashes, helped my friend Pam load and quilt a top, pulled some fabric to work on a UFO, and finished up my pillows that I started in January - I just need to pick up pillow forms for them. I used a great tutorial on Moda Bake Shop for concealing the zipper and I think they turned out pretty well. The tutorial is in this post, which also has a really cute pillow!

Although March is going to be a busy month, I hope to make some more time for crafting so that I have a little to show you in a few weeks!
