I like sewing baby clothes

I like sewing matching covers for my small appliances that I leave on the counters or shelves. I think it brings my kitchen together.

Love making my kitchen comfortable in every way possible. It is the heart of my tiny apartment so every inch needs to serve multiple uses. The table is my desk and also the place where anyone who visits lingers while I cook...Installed a corner booth around my round table. It needed seat cushions and back pillows. Those colors were the starting point for the rest of the kitchen. Am working on a tea cozy and table cloth next. Was not able to download a picture but can provide one if needed.
