Hello from Northern California. Where the oak trees dot the golden hills. This blog is a portal for me to share with you what is going on in my little part of the world. I love to garden, craft and use my imagination in every way possible. Please visit me often and stay tuned for tutorials of different crafts you can do at home. I hope to inspire creativity in others.

I just loved the image of these two girls, hair tousled by the gentle wind. I hope I captured them in a way that portrays love and contentment to you.

I've been so very busy with my upholstery I haven't had time for fun artistic creations.
Below are some seats that gave me a hell of a time the past week. They were ugly as sin when they arrived here. Someone ( my client) had tried to spray paint the fabric back to red, then changed their mind and decided to spray it black. Needless to say, shortcuts don't usually work.
I recovered them in a black vinyl and black velveteen automotive fabric. My biggest problem was I did not even think of the stretch of the original fabric when I chose the new fabric and I was sweating bullets trying to get the cover over the frame without ripping it open.
In the end they were beautiful and the client was so very happy. Yeah!!!
Now we are refreshing an entire restaurant, and I have about 60 booths and backs to do. The restaurant is not closing down to remodel so it all happens in the off hours. meaning night, morning and everything must be complete by the opening each day. Sigh... it can be stressful.
I am working on a beautiful felt picture, it is coming along wonderfully, hopefully I can do more with it this weekend.
