Thought you all might like to see what I did on my day "off" yesterday. Ta-da!
I bought this fabric last fall, repainted our kitchen/greatroom to match (tan and aqua walls.) I then got way too busy around the holidays (didn't see that coming?)and now eight months laterI finally got down to sewing! Better late than never I guess.
I'm pretty happy with it, I think. It's supposed to have some "ties" at the arms, but I'm not sure I would like them. To me this looks sort of "shabby-chic" which is something I like. Casual country living is what we do, so anything that looks "formal" is quite out of place here.
I still have enough fabric (hopefully) to do the couch, although probably not until July. Then I need to do some simple tab-top curtains....with any luck I may just have it all finished by Thanksgiving this year! :)
