Projects past and future for Madison

Here are a couple things that I have done for Madison! 
This first table I got from the back alley!  It was placed there to go to the dumb.  The top needed to be replaced as it had sat out in the rain for a few days.  My uncle helped with replacing that.  I painted it white and then replaced the handles with a wooden knobs and painted them with green sparkle paint.  My aunt found the chair at a antique store.  It was blue and red, so I painted it white and replaced the seat cover with the green cloth.

I bought the little table and chair at Ikea, it was not stained or painted.  I painted it the white and green trim to match her room.  I made the reversable table cloth and chair covers.

Here are some picture of Madison's Play House and the material I purchased to make some curtains for the windows and doorways.  My dad got the swing/playhouse from his boss, we added the slide and gave it a coat of paint and you would have thought we just purchased it from the store.

Well I have finally started my first real quilt. I am in the process of creating this with my sister in law, Peggy. She is a pro at quilting so she is going to help me if i have any questions, which i am sure I will have so many of them :).

The quilt we are doing is a (BOM) Block of the month by Debbie Mumm. It is a Christmas theme. We started late, so we have to do 2 this month to catch up.

Here is a few pictures of the material I chose, and what the finished product will look like.
