From Obsession to Fruition

Remember this, my obsession?  

Well, it's come to fruition.

My sweet friend Carrie Beth cut the letters for me, and I bought a handful of embroidery hoops.  I got a bundle of fabric squares at Joann's for $11.99 and used a 50% off coupon.  I also had a 40% off an order over $25, so my total for seven embroidery hoops and a bundle of fabric was just over $15.00.  I also used a few scraps of fabric I already had.  I do want to add more hoops, so I think I'll wait until I have another coupon and buy about 5 more.  I'm only going to use fabric I already have with those, because I don't want 12947209 patterns of fabric on the wall.

I LOVE how it looks.
And I know I will love it more when it's got more hoops filled in.

This child better come home soon.  
I'm afraid I'll redecorate her room 4 times before she gets home!


  1. LOL I LOVE it! :) I'm gonna have to have you come decorate my room! Of course, I won't let you come until you can bring Katie with you, and I of course, will be your built in babysitter! :D

  2. oooooooooo I love the hoops- I may have to steal that idea!! Beautiful!

  3. You beautiful princess is going to love her new room.

  4. Awww it's so pretty Kim!! Great job!

  5. OH I LOVE THIS KIM!!!!! SOOOOOOOO CUTE!!! :) Seriously can I move in!? ha ha

  6. Very pretty..you should wait on the other hoops and use fabric from her favorite outfits when she out grows them...kinda like a quilt thing...keeping you guys in my prayers...

  7. Kim it's gorgeous!! I wish I had a turnaround time as fast as yours!! :D I'm sure Katie will love it!
