We are all interconnected. What you do today, right now, matters the most. You are creating and influencing the world around you at every moment so take a deep breath, smile and shine light into your sphere of influence. It's how we can all make the world a better place. ~Zeke of Bodhicitta
...we have this slightly old and tired (and grumpy looking) chair, free from Paul's grandmother. It has only a wee hole in the top and is functioning rather well in the living room. I can't see dropping hundreds of bucks for new furniture when this furniture still works (many hundreds if I get a matching set of chairs and the loveseat (gasp), oh Ektorp how I pine for you). I'm just not going to do it! Plus, we've had an eclectic mix of cast-offs and hand-me-downs for so long, I'm just not sure I could handle the newness and the matchy-matchy-ness of new and unused furniture. While I really, really like the look in other people's homes, in mine, I'd probably miss the stories and the personality of all this funky junk!
SO...I took the lessons learned from my first slip cover, another large drop cloth, and 6 hours on Monday while Annie was home recuperating from a cold to sew up another cover. (The pressure of imminent Thanksgiving guests kept me stitching away, no time for whining!) The arms came out much better this time although something really funky happened along the sides, but I'm not getting into those details with y'all! Overall, I'm very pleased with this one.
