The Tortoise and the Hare

Have you ever felt like that in your design projects?

I have been working on a project for a client who is now such a sweet friend for months. I posted here in February with just fabric samples and what was going where. Since then, the painters and upholsterer's have been there, new furniture pieces purchased and a bathroom remodel is currently going on plus a powder-room re-do.

Pillows have been made...the fringe on the paisley is so yummy! My drapery seamstress, Erica, Miss Sew It All, is fabulous. She added such nice detail to the monogrammed pillow with triple tassels at each corner and a covered button.

Living room drapes with triple pinch pleat and covered buttons for an added detail...

Dining room drapes with goblet pleats and fringe on leading edge...

In a few weeks I will be going to DC to put it all together. I cannot wait, and I know my client is anxious as well. I will certainly post the finished product!
