The Project House – For Sale / Virtual Tour

February 22nd, 2013

After 2 great years of working on this great house, we’ve decided to put her up for sale and move on to the next project house. I will definitely miss living here and I’ll especially miss my lovely kitchen and laundry room.  In 2 years we were able to renovate the house in its entirety, renovate the shed, and get a little landscaping done too. Onto the house tour!

ETA – here is the listing: House Listing


4 Bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, large bonus room – 2380 Sq Ft and a pool. All of this on more than 1/3rd of an acre in lovely El Dorado Hills, California.  (I’ll link the listing soon)

(Pass this along if you know anyone who’s buying!)

So Sophie, how many projects?

April 12th, 2012

 So Sophie, how many projects can we make from a 10×10 stack?

Project # 1 Baby Bib

This simple patchwork baby bib used only a few 2.5 squares. I cut one strip of 2.5×10 of each of the prints and then sub cut those strips into 2.5×2.5 inch squares. I then sewed those squares together in a simple patchwork pattern, added some linen and lace. I backed the bib in absorbent terry cloth and used my favorite baby bib pattern from the book One Yard Wonders.

 You can see that there are still many pieces and scraps to play with. Next week I will share more projects made with the 10×10 left overs.
