So DD wanted a felted handbag for prom. She says "hey mom, I really need a cute bag and only you can make what I want...PLEASEEEEE!" I of course can't say no so here is the bag that I made for her. Once it was felted I hand sewed all the clear glass beads with silver sleeves on the edge of the flap, handle, and across the front. She loves it. Oh what we do for our babies!!!!

The chair with Tootsie in it will be recovered in the chenille bedspread that she is laying on, and the rocker is my $5.00 garage sale find that I will be painting and recovering as well. I found the perfect fabric at JoAnn's and will go get some later this month. The shelves are being painted as I type and the TV will be going up in the corner on a stand kinda like in the hospital. I am looking for the right rug, and lamp. I have the valance all picked out just have to make it.
The little table in between the chairs is one hubby bought me a last weekend to go in "The Girlie Room". He just laughs when he looks in there shakes his head and says"as long as you are happy with it, and I like that it makes you smile." Aren't I lucky!?!?!?!?
I can't wait to get the shelves done and my yarn stash in there. I still have a lot left to do and will keep sharing as I go.So let me know what you think.
Oh sorry I forgot to set the camera date when I changed the batteries.

The room has my cat Tootsie's seal of approval. She probably spends more time in there than I do right now ...LOL. Tootsie's favorite color just happens to be bright pink, so I guess she thinks that this is her room.
I hope everyone has a great Mother's Day!!!

Below are pictures after I Spackle this morning. I am waiting for the Spackle to dry so then I can texturize the 2 walls to match the others. When we moved in to this house about 13 years ago we knew that the house had some issues, but boy we never expected the walls to have holes under the paneling. I really am enjoying this project, I have the colors all picked out and ready to paint as soon as the prep work is done. My goal is to have the room presentable by June 10th when we have Daughters Grad party here.
