Haven't looked at backsplashes but I would Love to have slate. I had a slate floor in our previous home and loved it so much.

In Between

I was inspired to make patchwork curtains for the Living room. I made 3 but need a tension rod for the bay.
Patchwork is so pretty. But I may be a bit biased.
I'm making them for our bedroom also. I think they will be perfect to go with all my quilts I switch out on the bed.
Homey, cozy.
