Thank you all.  I didn't realize how popular Holly Hobby was.  When she was born we were all in love with the Little House on the Prairie on tv...she was supposed to be a boy and surprised us all when she came out a girl so of course I went all out.lol.  My Mom sent me yards of Holly Hobby fabric and I made her curtains, bed spread, sheets...oh it was fun. (poor kid)  My best friend even sent her HH outfits.  Thanks for sharing you guys!!
Of course, I still need to learn to take better photos.

Thank you everyone.  I appreciate it.
vintageburlesque, I used to do crafts anywhere but I'd have to put everything back up the second I left them.  What a pain. If I left anything in my sittingroom\livingroom\family room then the whole place was a wreck things being so small and the family just didn't like Mom doing crafting all over the place.lol So I feel really blessed to have my own space now.  It's only 9 sq meters but feels like an auditorium.lol
craftydeb.  I know what you mean.  I don't know if I could have had the courage to do it if it had sentimental value.....this had been in a dusty ole office for years.  It wasn't hard at all in the end.  Just have a good staple gun and have a go at it. (That was great fun.lol) 

I am tickled pink that I've finally figured out how to start a post I had wanted to share so bad.
Oh course the after picture isn't true to color.  Lots of baby blues and yellows in there.  Next thing to learn.lol
Thanks again!!

I have just recently been "awarded" a craft space of my own. So I've been fixing it up, straightening up, repairing, trying to find a place for everything.  One of those things I've been working on is this chair DH brought me from somewhere.  It was full of dust, torn, just weird.
I took some fabric and...took off.  I have to say though that I was inspired to do so by the people here.
The "gift".

There must have been a million staples in this thing.  Literally rows of them.  I used a screwdriver and small pliers.

Then to be on the safe side I used the old fabric to cut out new pieces.

In the end, came up with this. 

Thank you for looking.

2085  COOKING / Dessert / Holly Hobby Birthday Cake on: April 28, 2008 01:24:18 AM
This month my DD celebrated her birthday.  She asked me very politely if she could have two cakes this year.  A cheese cake and a....Holly Hobby cake just like I made her when she was 3.  Well, that gave me about 6 hrs to bake, cool, decorate find my well hidden tools and find something big enough to hold it.  Here is the result.  I didn't find anything big enough to hold it so I put foil on my kitchen wagon...Well it worked.

Oh, BTW, did I mention that my little baby celebrated her 25th?
It's been about 20 yrs. since I've done this cake but it was fun.

Incredibly great and simple idea!!! I love the way it can be made larger or smaller as your ribbon supply changes. Love this!!!  Wish I'd seen this earlier. Shocked

Don't know why I didn't see your update til just now.
Definitely has the "wow" factor.  The new floor looks great and those shelves do look very very nice.  Love the way you painted behind them.  Great job.
