Why hello Virginia Beach..

Here are some pictures from our weekend in Virginia Beach. Had a good time but wished we could've stayed longer....
It was absolutely freezing so we didn't hang out here very long.

I guess everyone was staying cozy inside.

Project #1: Make new cushion covers for the glider.. not so easy to do when you can't use the existing covers to make your pattern. 

Tessa picked out a gorgeous upholstery fabric. Was a little tricky to work with because it was reversible and therefore super thick!

Project number 2: Curtains. We made two sets- one in this preppy print and another set in extra fabric from the cushions. Tessa is pictured above as she trims the selvages. See more pics on her blog here.

After a long day of sewing we treated ourselves to Skinny Dip.. which turns out to not be so skinny after all...

On our way out of town we met up with Jess from I Rock So What. Jess and I went to high school together and she's been super supportive of Barely Measured since the beginning! I stole this picture from her post of our afternoon rendezvous, here.


  1. Looks like you had a great time! The new room is so CUTE! It's also awesome, of course that you and Jess got to hang out.

  2. It was awesome, I haven't seen Jess in years! It was so nice to catch up and talk shop :)
