This is one of a pair of side chairs I purchased off craigslist over the summer. You can read about it here. This is the before pic:
I figured they looked easy enough to recover myself, so I finally found some fun fabric and finished the one of the two. The fabric is from the amazing Australian fabric designers, Umbrella Prints. It was a total splurge for me when I ordered it a few months ago, so it’s nice that at least one of the chairs is finished and I can see it daily. I love the print, it’s fun and versatile at the same time. Someday I’ll make some spiffy patchwork pillows to add to the fun.
[yep, this is me in my chair, I’m that cool]
Things are still pretty bumpy here, I’m starting back full-time at my job this week. It should be interesting. I wish I didn’t have to, but that’s the way life goes I guess. I’ve definitely learned a lot in the last couple weeks, more than I ever could have imagined. Anyway, hope you have a great Monday…
I know Thanksgiving was yesterday, but I still wanted to write up a list of things I’m thankful for
family, friends, my job, neighbors, my home, my dog, blogging, sewing, my sister-in-laws, and most of all my girls:
[they’re posing with some goodies from my friend Jeni, thank you Jeni!]
I hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday surrounded by your favorite people. Thank you for reading! And I also want to add a huge thank you to everyone who purchased my patterns during my sale, it brought this little mama tears of joy, thank you.
Thank you all so much for your sincere and kind emails and comments about my last post. I really feel uplifted by your thoughts and prayers and knowing I’m not alone in life’s struggles. I do want you to know that we’re all physically okay and I am so thankful for that. I have become really aware of how many people really do care about me and my family, it really is amazing. But for now I’m taking things one day at a time…
I’m sure you’re all planning your Thanksgiving day festivities and maybe even plotting the route to your favorite shops on Friday, but I wanted to have a little pre-holiday sale. I’ve never done one before, but having some money to pay a few bills would be a relief. So please stop by and enjoy $2 off any pattern of your choice!

All done, thanks so much for your support!!
