I feel as if I haven’t been in the sewing room for days and not much is likely to happen today. Laundry is piling up, the kitchen needs cleaning and I’m going to have a fun day with Daughter #1 and 3 working on the apartment. Such is life. But I do have a couple projects in the design stage. This is what is on the design wall at the moment.
I didn’t get far on the wedding quilt for my nephew yesterday. I have gotten the backing loaded and the batting cut and I do hope to start the quilting today. But there is another design project on the horizon.
I picked this chair up while thrifting with my sister when I was in Wisconsin. I want to reupholster it in patchwork. I have no idea what I’m doing here. My sister is the upholstering queen and she gave me some tips. She assures me I can do this……
My dad not only saved the two sewing machines for me from the estate of my great aunt, but he grabbed a few boxes of fabric as well. In one, were these fabric samples.
They might find their way into this project….. This is a job I’m going to have to really think about. The chair will live in my sewing room and I want it to be wild and funky. And I want to do some free motion quilting on it. I have redone a couple small rockers and this seems fairly simple, but it is still a bit (a lot) out of my comfort zone.
Have a wonderful day!
