{Air Your Laundry Friday} #21

I’ve been in a bit of a sewing frenzy around here
(If you follow me on Facebook, you got to see a sneak peak of my sofa slipcover progress).
Happy to see that you are too
 because there were some great textile projects linked up last week.

I stepped away from my sewing machine today
but I hope you didn’t…
I can’t wait to see what you share this week.

There will be no link party next Friday, April 8
as I’m scheduled to parade my home 
for the 2011 Parade of Homes at Poppies at Play.
I’ll feature my favorites from this party the following Friday!
Here are my freckled loves this week…
created a great video tutorial
on how to make this style of rosette.
 A simple ‘twist’ creates a very different look
and I actually prefer the look of these rosettes to my rolled rosettes
…and she doesn’t sound like a 12-yr.-old boy in her video like I do.
(It was my first video…don’t judge me. Ha!)

I am IN LOVE with these wire baskets
I’m so happy she added a little textile to them with the handles so that I could share them.
I see several of these being made for my office makeover.
This is an easy & chic DIY camera case solution
Adding this one to the list…

crocheted a precious star garland.

this beautiful ottoman from a Christmas tree stand.

 As always,
Thank You for linking up or looking around.
I always love so much more than I feature.
Can’t wait to see what you share this week.

5. I’d love it if you followed me too, but it’s optional.   

Happy Friday, sweets.

  1. Julias basket is just adorable!

  2. I’m so glad I found your party. I love the focus on textiles! It’s hard to see any evidence of textiles from the thumbnail, but my banner uses canvas and burlap. Thank you so much for hosting. I always enjoy visiting here! Jenn

  3. I must have missed that camera bag. That is great!

  4. Julia says:

    Thanks so much for featuring me…I am so flattered:).


  5. Hi sweet pea,

    I’ve linked up one of my favourite craft books that’s all about textiles but if it’s not right for your party then please feel free to delete it.

    Thanks for the feature! And I am glad the video isn’t too scary. I am checking out yours now and I am sure you don’t sound like a 12 year old boy! It is just so strange hearing ourselves and then putting it on the internet. Thanks again!

  15. Wow! I always wonder where they get these inspiring ideas. I’ve got to get some sewing done. I told my friend Andrea from Opulent Cottage about your weekly meme, as she’s quite the sewer!

  16. Jami, Congrats on being chosen for the Parade Of Homes. I look forward to seeing more of your lovely home.

thank you for taking a minute to write...
