Sneak Peek…….(plus,this family’s off to the water park!)

I’ve been working on a little something that I hinted at sharing weeks ago.  And it has to do with fabric.  And tufting.  And foam.  Any ideas?


It looks a little like this:



I was planning on sharing this project today…….but good golly, I forgot how many pictures I took of the process.  And you know me, I take a trillion photos.  Just in case that one little extra picture will help explain the process just that much better.



But instead of finishing up, we’re headed out the door to an amusement/water park……with a whole gaggle of cousins and aunts/uncles that came into town.  So happy everyone flew into town at the very end of the summer, so Oliver and I could go too.  (Though, we’ll be scoping out all of the shaded areas mostly!)


As for that sneaky little project……I’ll be back to share tomorrow!


Enjoy your Monday!



P.S.  If you follow along on Instagram, this will look familiar —

But this is what’s making me very happy these days:
