I love a bargain!

After!
Before...
I bought this chair about a year ago. I think the shape and tufting are just perfect. It was a whopping five bucks and I couldn't pass it up even though the fabric was shredding. It took me about a year to decide what fabric to cover it in and I ended up going with yardage I had so I didn't need to spend anymore cash. I found a fantastic woman on Craig's list who did such a great job covering it. I am in such love with this chair! All those covered buttons! I only wish there were a pair of them but I am happy with this one. The dog must know how much I love it because he stays off it. I love that dog.
Tomorrow is back to school night so I can't go to the Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting but I have a sewing date during the day with one of my sewing pals so all is not lost. Should be LOTS of fun. And lots of gabbing! Next up is new curtains and new pillows for the livingroom. And two quilts I have in the works.

I LOVE the chair! My daughter has a second hand chair that is a little similar. Hmmm. Maybe we should recover it.

We will REALLY miss you tomorrow night. I'll probably be late anyway, due to another commitment, but Mo2 promises to go out with me afterward.

Can you come over and help me decorate?! I love that chair. The lady you hired did an amazing job.
We will miss you for sure, but maybe we can get together soon!

Yeah, that's an awesome chair and an awesome dog (isn't that his little nubbin tail and cute short leg that I can see in the corner of the pic?) I can't go tomorrow either, maybe next Thurs at SMS...
