The Beehive Cottage

a lovely sight!!

today I found this lovely site!  The Beehive cottage!  look it up at the link I'm putting is worth it!

decorationg a classroom!

In my church we work very closely with the young women's personal and spiritual improvement, one thing doesn't go without the other!  We have a program called Personal Progress.  The girls and their mother's are encouraged to set goals and work together in the things they choose to do! It can be related to all areas of personal knowledge and improvement, inlcuding their spiritual and emotional preparedness.  The girls meet once a week to work together and of course on Sunday they have their most spiritual time together.  The leaders decided to decorate the girl's room in a way that would make them feel welcome and in an environment that the girls enjoy!! So we decided to do patchwork and quilting items that would reflect their personality!

Here you can see the felt heart wall hanging - it meant all the girls part of the group
The gifts they received for keeping their goal - a fabric folder
to keep their journals, books and scriptures!
The table cloth - quilted top! and chair covers also quilted and
a bulletin board to keep their programs in check!  It all turned out
really well and they really enjoyed their gifts! I did most of the sewing and the ideas, my friends helped me with the cutting and pinning and turning!! We made 20 folders and chair covers in all!
It was a lot of sewing and lot of time consuming, but it was a wonderful time and experience!
 Here in you can see all the leaders and girls who were awarded in that first day!

Final setup!

wow!! it took awhile, but I think I finally got the look closer to what I want!!  I have seen some blogs I think are just beautiful with lots of white and ecru and beige and the vintage look I love so much... but I haven't found that look for a background...and then again my Hungarian nature flourishes and I fill it with vibrant colors!! what can say... would love to hear from what you think... is it pleasing to the eyes?

 Well now I hope I can concentrate on the things I have been working on and preparing to post them!!

I have seen some constant friends coming along to visit!! thank you!! would like, or rather, love to hear what you would like to see!!


ah! my home picture doesn't fit in the header anymore so here it goes to post!
