I can’t believe that it’s already Thursday evening. This week has gone by soooo fast. It’s been filled with sewing and picking up T-Man after school every day since his Mommy is still down from her surgery. Heather’s simple hernia surgery turned into a 6 hour major major surgery. She came very close to ending up in ICU and was in the hospital for three days. When the surgeon informed us of the extent of what he had to do, I handled the stress in my usual fashion and broke out in hives. :) Thank goodness everything went well. She is still in a whole whole lot of pain and has a longer than expected recovery ahead. She better hurry though, we have a wedding to plan!!!!
I’ve had plenty to do this week. SEWING!!
I finished this white slipcover for the chair in my tiny studio room. White denim and I found a yummy gauzy linen blend for the ruffles.
Here’s the top back.
I love it! I added extra fabric to the skirt to make it really full and fluffy!
So……if I’m not careful, I may ruffle the world. I really do love the way that they look. I just hope I’m still saying that next year at this time after all of the work I’m doing.
I started on the dining room chairs today. It was either slipcover or paint. The black chairs just didn’t look right with everything else that I have been doing.
I haven’t pressed this one yet. I wanted to get a couple of pics. in with this post. Which accounts for the lousy quality!
I probably shouldn’t have done the same ruffle on the top as the other chair, but I think it looks pretty cute in the chocolate brown. Which, by the way, came from a linen dust ruffle that I was no longer using. The fabric for these chairs was $5.99 a yard. So it’s costing under $10.00 a chair for the dining room. Pretty thrifty! I’ll show a complete room before and after when I’m done. Just don’t hold your breath. It may be awhile!
Have a nice rest of the week!
