So this is my progress thus far on Britt's bench. The original pattern called for aprons on the sides. I didn't want those, since I was covering the top. I've been searching for the right foam for the seat cushion, but alas I didn't realize how expensive foam is! So now wanting to be as thrifty as possible, I'm on the hunt for either some old outdoor cushions or even a boat cushion. I found one small piece at Joanne's over the weekend, but it was not the right density, and I didn't think it would hold up with repeated sittings. I also haven't decided on whether or not I want to distress the paint. I think it looks kinda cute just like it is. I'll let Britt decide since it will be in her house. She chose the fabric. She did a good job didn't' she?
I am also almost finished with the embroidery on Angie's tote bag. Those little woven picots are taking longer than expected. I just finished the last one yesterday, and all that's left is filling in the middle of the flowers. I'll have pics hopefully tomorrow. Or I may just wait until Thursday when I should have the whole thing finished.
And yesterday, I took Robbie with me to Joanne's. I knew better, I knew better, I knew better. I couldn't leave without buying his UGA fabric for his new UGA themed quilt. Then I had to sit down at home later and sketch out the rendering based on his instructions. And let me just say, they were terribly explicit!!!!! I did offer some advice. Some he took, some - not so much. I hope it turns out the way he has envisioned.
So although I haven't posted in a few days, I have been busy with projects. I'm beginning to think that Jeannie Baumeister is on to something with her "do one thing at a time" motto.
