Crafty Mama

I haven't put a lot of detail on this blog about all the changes that are happening around keep the story short, we moved from Oregon about 10 weeks ago, and now we are moving again! I know, we are honestly crazy. I just hung my last set of curtains about 2 weeks ago, and now everything is getting packed back up. I thought it would be at least a couple years before we booked a rental truck again, but here we are, becoming great buddies with the guys at Uhaul. Anyway, with all the changes and craziness of our life right now, I have not been in a huge project mood. I have been cleaning out and organizing like crazy! But that's not super fun to read about. My cute mom, on the other hand, has been crafting away all summer long, so I thought I would show you a few glimpses of what she's been up to!

This darling chevron patterned quilt she has been making by piecing together fat quarters. Are you kidding? So cute!!

Next up, she completely refinished this little cabinet...but I don't have a before picture! Let's just say it was not pretty. It lives in her front room, a beautiful room with a big grand piano. It houses all of the piano music, so it is a necessary piece, but it was a dark, dated wood with dated hardware...just dated.
So she sanded it down, spray painted it cream, then antiqued it.

She also added these feet, making it a beautiful piece of furniture!

She is also a master sewer ( I'm not, I don't even know what it's called)
She made this skirt for my little gal

And with the extra, made a baby skirt and shoes. 

So there ya have it, folks! My super talented mama! Hopefully after this next move, things will die down a bit and I cane get down to business!
