Winter Nesting

Remember when this used to be a somewhat crafty blog? I don't know what has happened to me since Christmas but I just can' t muster ideas for the old blog like I was. I am still working on things, course none of them are really finished, maybe that is the problem. Anyone remember the family sampler I started in the summer? I think I will call it my mental health sampler because it has never had a real destination. I just keep working on it, and it makes me happy. It may end up in the kids bathroom, I think it is almost done. It is full of little scenes that describe our family, a girl reading, cars, planes, fishing, our house and grass. And just plan cuteness, guess that is for me.
I have been trying to finish pulling the family room together now that the entertainment center had been repaired after all of its moves. My mom helped me get it and those pictures in the right place.
Our Bedroom. The latest project. This is what we have now, and have had for quite awhile now. That quilt has been through a lot of moves in the last few years. We are sort of tired of it.

One of the new options. I like this quilt I found, it is a dark chocolate. I want green to go with it.

Another option, I think I like the first one better though.
Funny how winter makes me want to nest. Clean house, change it. I guess it helps with the cabin fever. Are you nesting too? What projects are you working on?

I like the new bedspreads. It's late...I can't tell the difference between them. But green and brown is in, I've noticed!

I did cleaning and rearranging last weekend and nothing sense. I can't get motivated to create of anything so feeling like a slug in that regard. I need to get some things together for a friend's birthday tomorrow and have started nothing nor planned anything. Wow! Your family sampler is so detailed and fun. The change of bedding sure makes a difference in the way the bedroom looks. Nice change with the darker bedspread and pillows. Have a great day! Tammy
