all in a days work

i decided yesterday that i was loosing valuable hours while the kids were playing outside in the backyard. i loaded up the sewing machine and took it out on the screened in porch, plugged the thing in, and got to work. it was relatively pleasant other than the few fires that had
to be put out in the sandbox. here is what the afternoon yeilded. remember that
$5 or $10 chair that i bought at an estate sale.
well here is what it looks like now

would you like to come and sit on the screened in porch with me?

total chair cost: $17

~type to you soon~

Looks great!! I did a practice run on covering my ottoman yesterday (Becky's MIL gave me some extra fabric she had). Turned out pretty good. I will send before and after pictures when it is done.

Sally - i used about 3 inch wide strips of leather woven together and tacked down with upholstering tacks.

Sarah - yes...send pictures. i love to see others handiwork!
