Work Day

One of my friends and I have a kind of funny tradition, but one that we really enjoy.  It is called "Work Day."

We get together for three or so hours and work.  We alternate whose project gets top billing, and then just go to town together.

We have done glamorous things, like these pillows for her to-die-for living room...

I donated the plaid fabric, and she bought the rest.  I did most of the sewing, and she watched my kids for me.  It was so fun to work with such pretty materials--ball fringe and ric-rac are both weaknesses of mine.  

We also had fun putting together the gallery wall for my living room:


We've also done some not-so-glamorous projects, like cleaning out her son's bedroom.  It was nice to know, as I unearthed all sorts of crazy stuff, that I am not the only one with a semi-disgusting, baffling, yet ultimately love-able 14-year-old boy :).  

Either way, it's more fun to do work (and I am less likely to get Decorating ADHD) when I am doing it with a friend.  

We've both had a couple months of craziness, and I've missed the excuse for productivity and companionship.  

It's time for work day again.
