We stayed close to home for crafty purposes today. The boys turned a cardboard insert from a box, into a window for a make-believe shop they named, “Frank”. This store provided t-shirts, food, and both airplane and bus tickets. One stop shopping, if you ask me.
Meanwhile, Dave and I worked on a couple of dining area projects. He found a 1960’s set on Craigs List which would accommodate all of us for dinner plus our two moms who will be with over the holidays. It’s in great shape but I didn’t jive on the chairs’ fabric (you know, because I don’t do subtle and understated very well) so I recovered them to match the space. I bought the fabric a couple of years ago off of eQuilter not knowing what I was going to do with it, and I ended up having just enough to cover all 6 chairs. Here’s a shot of the before (left) and after(right).
Here it is set up in our kitchen. And yes, we do have a sleeper sofa in same area that we eat in. Only the best for our guests! Only the best. 😉
I’ve also been working on felt x-mas stockings for the family but my %&@*! sewing machine isn’t working AGAIN, even though it just came back from the repairman. Arrgh!!
This is how I procrastinate when I’m supposed to be working. Ok, off to write and record this week’s CRL!
