Calling All Readers

I need your help.


Does anyone recognize the fabric on the pillow? Isn't it the best? I think it might be just what I need to get the ball rolling in Cricket's room.

I started it two years ago then got distracted. One of my New Year's resolutions is to get some projects finished around the house. Cricket's room is at the top of the list. Right now it has a little bit of everything. Left over quilts, blankets and the all important Teen Beat posters. Cricket has said no more pink. She only wants blue and yellow, maybe a little green. I'll keep the blue and white bed skirt. It's stapled to the bed with a piece of trim nailed on top of it. It's not going anywhere. I want to cover the back and sides of her bed with fabric covered panels. Probably in a yellow and white fabric.


A couple of pillows in the mystery fabric and I think we will be set. Then I can rid the room of Nick Jonas, Selena and somebody named Justin who needs a haircut. I just need to find out some info on that fabric and stay focused. Sometimes I get distracted. Does that ever happen to you? Any unfinished projects around your house?

  1. Don't know the fabric but it looks a little John Robshaw, and Oh, do I get distracted! You are not alone. Good luck!

  2. wait a minute- is that a quilt or a sheet on her bed? I think a quilt. I absolutely love that. Is she banishing that b/c it has pink in it?! Say it ain't so. I do love the inspiration pillow. I can't wait to see what you do.

  7. Distracted? In my last house I took off the kitchen cabinet doors to paint and they sat in my living room for 2 years. It was kinda nice when it was time to empty the dishwasher and just put em up there! I do love that bed-my girls would've loved it too!

  8. I wish I could help you out with that fabric, its so pretty, and I know that frustration of finding something you love and then not knowing how to get a hold of it. But, your daughter's bed is divine! Reminds me of a Steven Gambrel bedroom. So cozy.

  16. What a killer bed nook! Great idea to do the upholstered wall panels. But how dare you take down the homage to Teen Beat...I use to spend hours artfully arranging my collage. :) Can't wait to see her finished room!

  19. So glad I just stumbled across your blog. Is your daughter's name really Cricket? If so that is the GREATEST name I have heard in a long while. And her bed nook is daring. Unfortunately, I don't recognize that fabric, but it is lovely, isn't it? Good luck finishing up all your projects!
