Pinteresting Projects





My husband accuses me of being addicted to Pinterest.  Anyone else have the same issue?  It is a great resource for anything from sewing, which I utilize the most, recipes, home decor, education, gardening....and the list goes on and on.  It is really easy to sit at the computer instead of getting projects completed.

Recently I used pins from my sewing board to reproduce AND complete two projects.  Since my daughter just moved into a new place, she pinned curtains and asked me to make them for her.  So, I deviated from my normal niche of smocking and dove into home decor.

Here's the link to the tutorial provided for Anthropologie style curtains.

I found my project to be very easy and inexpensive--great for rental property!

My niece also pins on Pinterest and recently showed me an ipad cover she had found.  After she sent me this link, I set to work on her project.

This is how it turned out!

So, yes, I guess you could say I'm addicted to Pinterest.  I do spend a lot of time on the computer "researching".  Just remember to put those pins to use in a project!
