Life Is A Chair Of Bowlies

Ahhh, whether we are ready or not tomorrow arrives and when life gives you lemons Robin makes lemonade.  Just about the time her mother passed away Robin had ordered craft room furniture from the Martha Steward collection.  Sitting in boxes it waited for her return.  Now put together it is such a great set and the color "rhododendron leaf" is so soothing.  She ordered the same paint color from Martha's paint colors and painted some of her existing pieces in the same color. 

Her best friend Brim has got a cozy spot to hang out when she is crafting away...that's the thing...Robin is one of those people who is crafty at heart.

See this fruit bowl...Robin made it!

...and look at this ceramic bird house!  love the color!

I love this piece with the embossed leaf patterns

A lot of quilters enjoy other crafts...I'm interested in what crafts you're involved in???


  1. Lets see, I knit, crochet, paint, and almost anything else that happens to catch my interest. I quess I just like trying things.

  2. Hmmm...I've tackled lots of things over the years...ceramics (no kiln or tools any more)....weaving....painting wood...embroidery...cross stitching...making clothing...rug hooking...beading...just whatever has caught my fancy at the time. I got good fabric paints & PFD Kona cotton, as well as some polymer clay and tools, for Christmas so I want to learn to make beads and buttons and such with the latter items as well as to delve more into painting on fabric. I would love to learn how to crochet and knit too. I can do rudimentary crochet stitches but can't read a pattern, so at some point maybe....because I have batik kits to crochet and to knit purses (I think they're purses) that I want to make.

  3. I have tried just about everything, lol.
    I have never made a basket though;)


  4. I have tried them all, tole painting was my passion for about 5 years, then I learned to quilt, now it's all I do.

  5. Still love making cards, but don't have the time.

  6. I like most anything crafty, but I'm not good with painting. I love that furniture, but can't seem to find it on the web. Can you give me a clue? Thanks

  7. Pretty furniture Robin! I love to scrapbook and make cards. Scrapbooking is a lot like quilting......picking out all the beautiful papers and I even do a little sewing on my pages! Let's see "what shall I do today?......Quilt or Scrapbook!
