Favorites From 2011 . . .

2011 is winding down.  It seems like the older I get the faster the calendar changes.
Today I'm featuring some of my favorite projects from this year.

In February with the help of  my sister & brother-in-law we did away with the ugly wallpaper in the master bathroom.

We also transformed the guest bathroom.

My sisters visited in August & we restored some treasures.


my little rocker. . . 


an 8 drawer chest that used to be an ugly red . . . 

In September I got busy & warmed up my antique glue gun to make a paper wreath




I have plans to do more projects in 2012.
One thing I want to do is sew some ideas I've seen on Pinterest. 

Onesie Dress Tutorial...Love this!
clothes for Emma . . .

Flower Headbands - you could do this!
and some hair bling . . . 

Also appliqued shirts for both grandkids . . .

For thanksgiving

Girls can wear footballs too:)

With a cute little girl to sew for, who wouldn't want to get going?! Even boys provide ample opportunites for projects these days. I remember all those posts---you got a lot accomplished, Carol:)

You've got that "one more, one more" can do spirit. Looks like fun with your faithful Bernina is on the horizon. On your mark...get set...sew!

Great projects! Your bathrooms are amazing.

Glad you had a nice anniversary. Beans and cornbread would be just our style too. :)

Great projects completed, Carol, I have stripped wall paper and that is a very tedious job, everything looks wonderful. I am planning a few projects for next year too, some are carry overs from this year. Smile~
Wishing you and your family a very blessed, and Happy New Year.
Hugs,
Sue

Hi Carol! Love seeing your projects and what you want to do. I love those little hair thingys and i want to do some sewing for Carter too!
I get so inspired seeing everything and then my head starts spinning and then i don't seem to get anything done!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Wonderful share, Carol...loved seeing your beautiful re-do's. I especially liked seeing the previously "ugly red" set of small drawers....I just found one at a thrift store..it is black with gold decorative lines. I am hoping to alter it this winter so yours was interesting to see. I am now a follower of your blog and look forward to return visits. I invite you to join me as well at http://atastefultouch.blogspot.com
Hugs, Gayle.
