Perhaps you wonder why you see so much furniture being painted and not so much sewing being done.  I would wonder if I were you.  You see, my first love is sewing and creating things with embroidery and fabric.  I have been doing just that for about 22 years.  I really love it and the joy it brings to me and those around me.  I feel free patterns are a way to give back to all of you who have been so supportive for so many years.  I have been so very blessed and now my lovely sister Grace Jewell has joined with me to create even more fun for you.

The truth is, like everywhere else, things are a bit hard and the patterns were producing as they should.  I now paint good quality furniture and offer it, so it can have a new life with someone wonderful.  It is helping and is still fufilling to my creative side.  I have found I quite enjoy the hunt for great pieces that are damaged and just need me to paint them. 

I hope to be able to go back to sewing really soon, in fact I am in the process of making five skirts for my grandchildren.  They are going to be so cute when done.  I will post a photo as soon as I have one.

In the meantime, this is the latest of the fun I am up too!

  1. All of your furniture pieces are pretty, but my favorite is the corner cupboard.
    I'm just the opposite of you. I've been sewing more and need to get back to painting. I can quickly think of three things just in my kitchen that are screaming for a makeover.
    So many things I want to do & not enough time to do them!
