So I haven’t blogged much lately as I have been up to my eyeballs in sewing Christmas stockings for money-money. (Cue the Abba song, “I work all night, I work all day, I pay the bills I have to pay…Money, Money, Money”) Don’t they look awesome stacked all together? This photo was taken right before heading to the post office. Yee haw!
But I did have to stop the madness for just a few minutes to make some new pillows for my couch. I absolutely love the Annie Selke green/white fabric in the back and well….kind of like the bright pillow in front. It’s a bit loud, but I like it for now. Can you believe I got that Annie Selke fabric at Joann? Sha, I know. I usually hate their home decor fabrics but online the selection ain’t so bad. I also bought the same print in taupe to make a pillow for my bed. Stay tuned for that.
Oh and I also got me some new chairs for the family room. Hot diggity dog, ain’t they gorgeous? They are the Cara chair from Mitchell Gold ordered through Alice Lane here in Provo. (New couch will be another month)
I think I will repaint the walls later this winter as my family room is now one giant blob of green/yellow. Maybe soft white or light gray?
I know, I know, I need to make new pillows now that exude more ‘calmness’ for the chartreuse chairs (the W pillow is fine)…and a new throw to cover the arms. That $5 orange Ikea blanket has fulfilled its blanket destiny and it’s time to get a nice one. But for now, it protects the chair arm from grimy children leaning over to get even closer to the TV. And time to move the power strip. My old ikea chairs were big and bulky and hid that outlet perfectly. Nuts.
Now back to sewing. I figure if I make 10 stockings a day I can stay on track.
