I hope everyone is having a good summer, I have been busy with the kids and also living at the beach, I find that I don't get much done during the summer, I managed to get some of the unfinished projects done around my office. Above is a project I started a year ago, I was going to send it to somerset and of course the deadline passed, oh well, maybe next year? It's just a black canvas bag that I purchased from Michaels and embellished it with a vintage photo that I bought from ebay, some fabric, and layered some buttons on the side. a small pin with a stamped witch and charm was added on the handle of the bag. Sorry the picture is so big when you click on it, I forgot to reduce the size!

Another unfinished project that I just finished making. I have reupholstered the chair above. I should've taken a before and after shot, but I forgot. It used to be an orange chair, and I recovered it with a chocolate microfiber fabric. didn't it turn out cute? I did not do the cushions though, I did not want to sew the piping (too much work).
I have family coming for the next several weeks and I will be going to Texas to visit my little sister for a week(I'm excited to see her and her family) So thanks for looking, and hope you all have a safe summer.
