(air your laundry friday) textile party and a TIME CHANGE

I hope you had a lovely Thursday.

I’ve spent much of the week {happily} sewing.
It seems I’ll go weeks without touching my machine and then there are weeks when I don’t leave it!

Aside from a technical glitch last night, I’ve been finishing up a cute holiday tote order.
I can’t wait to show the bags to you.
Kristen at The Urban Farmhouse Market is SO creative and has a great fashion sense,
so what I’ll be sharing is all HER.
I’m just executing her pretty vision!

One little order of party business:
Hosting the party on Thursdays at 10 p.m. has proven a little tough.
It seems that by the time my children are tucked in, it’s going on 9:00, leaving me an hour before party time.
I always intend to visit links and schedule the post, etc. in the morning, but it never happens that way.
Well, maybe once.

I’ll am moving the party time back to THURSDAYS at 11:00.

The extra hour will be so helpful, so I hope it’s okay with you!
Also, I am hosting the Thanksgiving Traditions party this week,
so if any of your laundry projects (or laundry-free projects) are Thanksgiving related,
click the image below to link them up there too!
At least hop over for inspiration.
Last I checked, there were 104 projects!
Here are a few features from last week’s party.
Thank you to everyone who linked up!

I’ve been on the fence about painting a chair that’s been sitting in my basement for far too long.
I’ve seen it done the spray paint way, the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint way,
and now Samm at Little House in the Big D shared a great Painting Fabric Tutorial for the latex & fabric medium way.
You have to see the before of this baby x 2.

Terri at The Thrifty Needle shared her Yarn Bombing post as part of her city’s
Dancing with Wool public art project.
This has to be one of the most creative ways to pretty up a town that I’ve ever seen!
(Her post features several different poles decked out in colorful wool threads.)
Catherine at Freddy and Petunia always amazes me with her work.
This darling little bench is a repurposed Craig’s list dresser.
I love the vintage lace skirt and the pillow sham that she used to cover the top. 
Thank you!

Two simple party rules:
1. This is a textile {fabric} project party only.
2. Please take a minute and link back to the party in your post.
Can’t wait to see the beautiful things that you all loved or created this week.

Don’t forget that the party will start at 11 p.m. from now on!

    Your blog is really informative and worthy, the designs are really amazing, for a make over, hanging hand towels are really amazing.
    Just love your blog

    You were right lady. The painted chairs were awesome. And the blog is so amusing. Might have to pop in there from time to time. But I think the wool wrapped light pole takes the day for me. Nothing like toasty parking meters to make you smile.

thank you for taking a minute to write...
