My hands are on fire! Super sore, and my right hand has about 5 blisters! What have I been doing you say? Working on this beauty;
So sorry I didn't post much last week. I had one of those times when I felt like I wasn't giving my all to the kiddos and hubby. Things were spiraling around our house, the mess and the laundry...something had to give. Well I am proud to say my home is sparkling clean (well minus the bonus room and my daughters room). Honestly I felt most at peace the last couple of days then I have in awhile. Amazing what you can get done without junk in the way!
Now back to the chair-On Saturday night I brought this in the house to start removing the fabric. I got a flat head screwdriver, and some pliers. Carefully I started removing the pieces. I wanted to use the pieces as my template so I labeled them as they came off with a sharpie. Can anyone say 10, k-billion staples! For the love! I had no idea! Good thing the little muchkin was asleep. I ended up stopping, my hands were hurting. Then on Sunday I tried again. I was driven! I accomplished the task, but have blisters to show for it!
Later in the afternoon I went to Joanns to pick out some fabric. Why didn't anyone remind me that it was a Presidents Day Sale? Our Joanns is bad enough on a regular day, but a sale day-you may as well kiss the afternoon goodbye. It took me forever! I finally found a cute pattern, the problem was I couldn't tell if it was on sale. I loaded it in the cart, then I found a backup print. I figured whichever was the better deal I would go with that. So I waited, and waited, at the cutting counter-for e ver! Then when I got up there, I asked the price. My first pattern wasn't on sale-bummer, $14.99 per yard! Then on the backup; there wasn't enough fabric! Really. I gave her the look (I have been standing in line with and 11 month old who is missing his nap) didn't work! So back I went looking for more. I really had no luck! Everything that called to me, there just wasn't enough for the 6 yards that I needed. So I went with something way out there...You ready? Here is a little sneak peak.
