Fabric IS art!

I finished the mini quilt for Penelope's room and along with it I painted a frame and added in a fun print by Alexander Henry. Fabric can make such great art don't you think?

Making these things for Penelope's room made me change some things around and realize I need a rug for her room but I haven't found the right one.

The curtains my Mom and I made have really completed the room and I love that print from Denyse Schmidt's DS collection.

Now I am just on the search for the perfect rug (and really dying for some new carpet for the whole house but that has to wait) and then I think her room will be complete. Well complete until she gets out of her crib and into a bed then the whole room will have to be rearranged. I have no idea where I will put her bed when that happens.

It felt good to make a little mini quilt. Now my next big project is to get back to sewing blocks for the quilt I am making for my bed. Remember them? I know it has been awhile since I started it but I am determined to get it done! I really want it on my bed.

Penelope loves her room which makes me happy. Now I am off to concentrate on my bed quilt!

What a cute room! I think a yellow rug would look great in there. Maybe something like this?

I agree with Jenny--you should do yellow or even orange!

Your daughter is sweet!
