work table : patchwork crazy

I've been stealing bits of creative time all summer since my daughter isn't in school. I'm spending more time out of my studio in my house noticing all the little improvements I can make. Here are some I finished last week.


Of course it takes a little deadline like family coming to stay to get one in gear to actually finish all those projects around the house. I swapped out my oh so dull beige carpet tiles with these funky ones I had been using in my office. Zoe LOVES playing hopscotch down the hall now.


I have loved Henry Road fabrics for quite awhile and found a great use for their little remnant bags you can order online. I ordered one pack for each of my four Heywood Wakefield chairs that were also covered in oh so dull beige. You really get your money's worth with these packs. I have SO much fabric left over.


And now that summer is here, it means VACATION! We're off to Sonoma for two weeks and this is my pile of sewing I plan to take with me for my remote studio. I just have to remember to bring the thread!

Hey, great uses of leftovers! How on earth did you stitch the carpet tiles??? The chairs look gorgeous. Have a great vacation!

I wish I could stitch those together ... my arms aren't strong enough. The FLOR tiles have lovely little stickers on the bottom that attach to each other, a fantastic invention!
@Karen, thanks!

it's amazing how seemingly small changes like a new rug on chair covers can make such a difference - both in how your home feels and in your own state of mind. they both look great. have a wonderful vacation.

Thanks everyone on the vacation well wishes. It is SO nice being away from soppy wet fog for a few weeks! I hope the projects inspire some re-dos in your homes!

fantastic floor patchwork! i love flor tiles. your hallway looks like it gets wonderful light.
the chairs are a really creative solution and can never be boring. isn't it wonderful when your space reflects your self; especially when you create so much that fills it?
