Feminine Improvements

Emma over at Charming The Birds From The Trees is making some feminine improvements to her powder rooms. She has asked others to join in and I thought since I have recently done this I would share also. Here are before pictures of my guest powder room. It had a very nautical theme going...far from feminine, but since I was the only female, well you know.

The mirror was almost impossible to find and when I finally found it, the glass was accidentally broken and had to be replaced. It cost more to replace the broken mirror than the thing cost brand new! Anyway, I have since went feminine. I still need to paint the walls a soft lavender, almost white, and Sweet Hubby is putting in a white ceramic tile floor. I also need to change out the lighthouse switch plate!

My skills at photography are not getting any better I am afraid. You get the idea. A much more feminine powder room. Visit Emma's blog to check on how she is coming along with her feminine makeover. She is young enough to be my daughter, only 27, but she is very inspiring. Her blog always makes me feel more like a lady just visiting!

On the quilty front, I am working on my second embroidery block. Just practice mind you. I was a little unnerved when I saw Margaret's rooster. It was her second block also and her stitches are unbelievably good! I think I will need to practice a bit more. Her and Linda are trying to get me over my bagaphobia, so a new bag may be in my near future. In the meantime, I will share Rachel's third block in her Backyardigans series. Presenting Uniqua!!..I think she is a bug of some kind. Great job Rachel!!!

Don't be so hard on yourself, your stitchery looks great.

Nice makeover - looks very feminine!

If you can figure out how to get over your bagophobia let me know as I'd like to get over mine, too. I saw a pattern today that I thought might do it. I didn't buy it but it's still on my mind. LOL

I love the nautical mirror! Too bad about the glass though. Isn't that always the way of things. Oooh and I am about to embark on a bag project too!

I love the bathromm refurbishment - so pretty.
If you can make those gorgeous quilts you can make a simple bag!
Rachel has done another great job on her stitchery. Please pass on my compliments and tell her I'm Looking forward to seeing #4
