About Me

South Louisiana
I have been married for 20 years to a great husband and we have 8 children ranging in age from 1 to 18 years. I am a homeschooling mom, which can be very challenging. I love sewing, knitting, reading, gardening and have recently started oil painting. I love to create. I really want to have a blog to show off some of the stuff I create, but I also want to share about my life and family. email me at ctrich8@bellsouth.net

A little home decorating

We have this wood padded covering for the hearth of our fireplace. The fireplace is huge and since we have had small children all our married life, dh made this so that no little heads will get cracked open. Those bricks are HARD! Anyway, we have to recover it every couple of years because the kids sit on it, stand on it, color on it, etc. It was in desperate need of a recover, I should have taken a before picture, it was nasty! My four year old spilled something brown and yucky on it, that wouldn't come off. Gotta love 4 year old little boys! LOL I think this print will help cover any spills. I love this Amy Butler fabric. I have left over to make some floor pillows. Hopefully will get to that this week.
