The Sewing Project
We have been in our new home for a while now, but I am still decorating.
One of our guest rooms....The Blue Room (as we refer to it), was in need of another bedside table. I don't know about you, but I am not a fan of rooms where there is only a table on one side of the bed. Anyway, I found this small black console table that could also double as a small desk, large enough for someone that might bring along their laptop. Hmm now I am in need of a chair.
Well, wouldn't you know it. I am already in possession of the perfect chair....Which I will paint (the wood ),black. I know, you purist are gasping...and the seat gets a bit hard.... so it will also need a cushion.
So, I made a pattern from tissue paper, found a coordinating fabric...
and off to my sewing/laundry room ...where I did my best making a chair pad. The only sewing instructions I have had is half a year in homemaking class, in the eighth grade...The other half of the year was cooking, which may explain my culinary talents :)
and viola! I still need to stuff it with fiber fill....and Tom hasn't painted the chair yet. For some reason he doesn't trust me with paint.
My next project may be a bulletin board to hang above the little desk...or possibly to go out and take pictures for this blog!
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
