Recent fun stuff

 Recently, my friend hired me to recover the seat cushion that spans a whole wall in her sitting room. She has lived in that house for over 10 years and she had never recovered it the whole time she had lived there. It was starting to get holes and wear marks. I had never done anything like that, but i was willing to try! The hardest part was take the cover off. It even had a zipper on it. It was also kind of tricky trying to get it in my car to get it back to her house, but we made it!

It turned out so great, and it matches her blue piano!

Also this month I reached 400 sales in my Etsy shop! The thing that has been selling the most has been my wreaths. They were very popular for mothers day.

I have been venturing out into the hand quilting world. I recently discover a group that gets together once a month and makes hand quilted quilts to raise month for a local hospital. So I try to go for at least an hour each month. That ladies there are so nice and happy to show me how to do it. They are also really happy to tell me about their great-grand kids! I am probably as old as their grand kids.

What a great job covering the cushion!! It all flashed back at me....my days of being a seamstress I had a friend have me cover a large cushion she used on a lounge...the wrestling it out of the old cover...then wrestling it back in......and it wasn't as large as the one you covered!!
