late night, lots of progress.
My sister commented that my Monday blog was posted Tuesday. I usually blog late... oh well. Today I did a bunch of things! :) I love getting lots done.
I am working on refinishing these chairs and "watched" Walker while I sanded them with steel wool. They are coming along. I am still quite puzzled as to what color to cover the seats in. Any suggestions? I am thinking I am keeping the chrome and brown....
I need to get the green fabric for the top, but I am mostly finished with my PINEAPPLE! :) (Flying geese are those triangle type squares Kelly, and they made a pineapple (something fruity). This one is for mammaw. It's her late b-day present. I have enough triangles cut to make at least 2 more (one for me and one for mom). And enough of the pineapple bias tape to make 100. Oh well. The pattern was in a BHG quilt magazine and I love pineapples so I'd had my eye on it for awhile. I have been collecting the fabric since before we moved. My lines are not per
Amidst my super productive day (I stayed up REALLY late) I attended my SIL's band concert. She had a picalo solo and did awesome... Anyways I was wearing my new fall sweater and looked cute :) So here's a glance at that.
I finally finished a birthday present early!! :) Now if I can mail it on time.... I used this pattern... kinda. I love blog tutorials so much more than magazines etc. It didn't have a pattern for the pocket and I felt like it rushed or didn't describe some details, but I do think it turned out cute. I adore the fabric, so watch for the fabric again soon. If I did it again I would go more with my gut than following the pattern... which I am slowing learning is usually the way to go anyways... the bias tape was too thin and it would have been easy to hem a few lines on the back so it was less ragged. I did make ruffles on this one using a long stich- thats new for me. And that part looks awesome. I only had to take like 10 pictures with the timer at various heights to get one of just the apron :)
