So right now, we do not have a kitchen table. Well, we do... but, it is covered. Covered in fabric, felt, sewing machine, notions, etc. All necessesities for escape/control.
It all started because I wanted to find out exactly what materials I have in this house. An accounting, if you will. What I've wanted to be able to do is use the things I have in my house BEFORE I go out and buy new things. So, I started a project. A patchwork project.
I gathered together some patterned fabric squares, a bunch of old jeans, a cache of crochet thread, and some brushed twill remnants (that were supposed to be slipcovers). All of these materials were in my house, just not being used!
I've felt for awhile now that I need to use the materials I have. Not just store them. I NEED TO USE THEM. I need to turn them into new creations. Creations that my family can use and enjoy.
And I'm really looking forward to seeing what is hiding in this house, just waiting to be discovered!
