I had such a great time redoing this front porch on this fine old house that is now called Random Arts.
From the colorful new chair cushions, to the hanging mobiles made from embroidery hoops to the flowering plant life and painted chairs.... it makes me happy and it makes me feel all fresh and new just like spring.
For years I kept collecting beautiful fabrics at the quilt shows that I would go to as a vendor
and I knew that some day, I would figure out  what to do with those fabrics. This week I set
out to make pillow covers for all the chairs on the front porch thinking that I needed to go to
the fabric store. Low and behold, just a few steps away in my own space I found all the fabrics
that one could ever ask for and the process began.

One after another I started  to cover all those pillows that have been looking so tired and dingey.
They needed some life brought back to them and this was the perfect way to do that.
Now the porch is transformed. It's light and airy as well as welcoming to all those that
walk up the step to Random Arts.
Ahhh, what a good feeling.
