Sunday Evening Portrait

It really doesn’t get much better than this. After a long weekend working on our big house (which is 99% ready to rent!), it was so nice to return to our tiny house in the mountains. Our stress levels immediately went down after a few minutes in the lounge.

Oh and notice the curtains! Summer has come early here and tiny house was really heating up during the day. We are hoping that blocking some of that sunlight during the heat of the day will help keep our house cool. We only had time to hang one set (that still need to be hemmed), but the majority of sunlight comes through those back windows so I’ve already noticed a big difference.

Have a great week!

Tiny House Pillow

Since we’ve been living in tiny house, we’ve started doing more art. We are both artistic people, but there always seems to be something more pressing in our lives. But there are less distractions here and we’ve also made it a priority to spend more time creating. We found this amazing art guild about 15 minutes from our house that has an open studio on Monday nights. B spends his time at the pottery studio and I’ve been hitting up the fiber arts studio.

Having this extra time for me has resulted in discovering an interest in quilting. When reading through a quilting book, I saw a house block on a quilt and immediately thought TINY HOUSE! I’ve had a small pillow insert just waiting to be covered and I thought it would be perfect to create a mini version of our house for it.

Here it is in the lounge!

I’m still a newbie in terms of sewing, and had a lot of issues with this creation. Despite the frustrations with it, I had so much fun putting it together. I thought I’d show a couple pictures of the process in case anyone is interested.

I have a few more sewing projects to continue decorating the tiny house with (2 more pillows, curtains, and perhaps a quilt for our bed). I’ll continue to post them as I complete them.
