Trying out something new

 This week we’ve had a couple of days of very heavy rain so confined indoors I determined to cross some items off my list.  First up was re-upholstering my dining room chairs.   The previous fabric had been on for 32 years so had worn well:). Removing it was hard and I have the blisters to prove it but eventually all staples were out and I had my pattern.   One YouTube lesson and off I went and am so pleased with the finished product.   Blistered hands mean the remaining two chairs will have to wait, perhaps until the next rainy day?   Meanwhile I’m enjoying my Sanderson ‘Madagascar’ dining chairs.

Tomorrow is forecast to be fine so it will be laundry, lawn and garden (and a trip to the library to pick up the books I've requested).

  1. They look great, but can understand the need to give your hands a break. I remember my Mother doing that when I was a kid. She could do anything connected to sewing. I didn't inherit her skill. I can basics, maybe that's why I gravitated to the knitting and crocheting.

  3. Out blog walking so stopped into say hi. I tend to blog walk after writing a new post and sometimes you can't rely on what's showing up in the blog as current ...so I dropped in, just in case you had new post.
