Laundry Today, or Naked Tomorrow





Well I know you have been waiting for the promised project. I know you have thought of nothing else for the last three days. I'm sorry about that...*shrug*

My laundry room is really not very pretty...honestly we live in a basement and the laundry room looks like...well...a basement. I've been seeing lots of people's laundry room re-do's and thinking I'd like to spruce mine up.

So off to the planning I went. I decided I wanted something colorful and fun with a cute saying. That's just how I roll. Found this one online and it made me laugh out loud, and figured that was the winner.


I originally thought of something like "welcome to the land of misfit socks...but hubby liked this one better. Well then I wanted to do some applique. I've done a little before and loved it so I braved it again this time and added these little beauties in the corners. (all hand drawn btw! GO ME!)

We're not going to focus on the stitching lines that seeped over into the blue. We're going to look at the cute pants applique, right?

Love the shirt. I don't know why...I just do

I'd wear this skirt!

Dedicated to the land of misfit socks. (again ignore the uneven stitching lines, and just focus on the pretty sock!)

Then when I finished with the whole project I ended up with this beauty! (the pic is blury...)


She's going to hang proudly above my washer...but right now hubby stole the tool box and I can't find it. So I get to wait for him to help me hang it. That...and I can't reach over the washer...

Hope everyone has a fabulous rest of the week! It's Friday tomorrow, let's celebrate!

UPDATE: I just found the tools, so I went and hung it up all by myself! Don't need no man to hang my quilted wall stuffs! :-)

That is really neat. Be thankful you have a laundry room. I only have a hall. And it has other things in it too...and it's right out in front of god and everyone! We do have a curtain up but still...

That is a funny saying! I laughed out loud! Love the way this works - fantastic!

WOW. I was expecting a plaque - not a quilt. You did an outstanding job on it. The saying certainly makes me laugh, something I rarely do in my laundry room.

That is one of my favorite laundry sayings! You did a great job!

Great job!!! As I was reading and looking, I thought 'where does the seam go into the blue' and had to look to find it. LOL. Don't point out unique-ness and people won't notice!!! LOL. TYFS.

That is adorable. Great job! My laundry room is a huge mess too. Not in the basement but it is the place where everything gets thrown when someone is coming over! :) I have a sign in mine that reads - Around here "NORMAL" is just a setting on the washing machine. ! :)
Blessings!
