Just for ME

I've had a stressful week.  People needing me "yesterday", when I only have today to give.  I've been fighting a cold, but being a mother , wife ( and semi-professional seamstress) never stops.  This chair was my great grandfathers and a few days ago I just decided to make it mine!! It was a wonderful experience to do something just for me.  I have to admit, my favorite part of this picture is my little boy patiently waiting for me to open his graham crackers and watch him ride his bike.  So this is a tribute to all the ladies out there who have more to do than time allows.  Stop and do a little for yourself and then get back to work!!  I find that no matter what you do, the day still ends and the list just gets longer.  Enjoy a bit of it for yourself and keep smiling.

Changing it up!!

A chair doesn't have to be a dumpster find to benefit from a slipcover.  This client just wanted different decor in her home. 

BEFORE
Tufted leather parson chair-very masculine and formal



My client found some lovely  fabrics and came up with a style of her own.  I added some batting to the slipcover to hide the tufting.

AFTER
Elegant and soft.




HAPPY FRIDAY PEOPLE!!
