I miss writing on here, don't ask me why I haven't been, I guess I just needed a break. And I keep thinking of great things to write about and then forgetting so my head may have sprung a leak, but don't worry I'll put a sandbag on it. Or start writing things down, like how I bought one of my favorite pieces from The Portland Collection at a labor day sale this weekend and I love it so much! Too bad our NW weather decided to turn around for the weekend, making wool a less than ideal choice...
And remember how I was having a hard time picking out fabric for my chair here? Well I finally picked out some beige linen and finished the cushions this weekend!
I stole the throw pillow from the living room, but I'm planning on going out and finding a new one to put there permanently. I'm pretty happy with the fabric, although it seemed to keep moving as I sewed it. Cushions are deceptively hard, you think they are just big fabric rectangles but they require a lot of precision for everything to match up and there are definitely some things I will probably go back and tweak on this chair.
I was also really excited when I was reading Jack's blog post, and when I clicked on one of the links I discovered this under more ideas...the only difference is that mine is not a rocking chair and did not cost $300!
