I moved into my current neighborhood almost 3 years ago from a remote area outside of Charlottesville mostly for my daughter. I had no idea how much my own life would be enhanced by this move! As touched as I was the first time a neighborhood child rang our doorbell to see if Eliza could come out and play, I am equally blessed with the amazing people around me every day.
U-Fab and I had difficulty finding a vendor who was willing to donate any (that stuff gets expensive!!). So, I came across this idea of using cut fabric to make the trim. Problem was, the trim required cutting many many circles to create. Enter my fabulous friends to the rescue! In a relatively short time, Anita Gupta, Mercer Reeves, Amy Wielar, Lisa Woolfork, Mindy Goodall, Melissa Henriksen, Camilla Tolton, Farnaz Gazoni and Saskia Santen-Arts had a large ice bucket full of circles!! It was so great to be able to chat and cut together and it made the project so much fun!
A little sneak peek at the finished product:
So cute!I also have to give a big thank you to Rachel Thielman, who sewed the adorable pouf ottomans in my room. Rachel, your willingness to donate your time and talent to this project is inspirational to me. I am so grateful for your efforts and hope we can work together again soon! Rachel is so generous - she offered to sew pillows with the leftover fabric -- how amazing!!
