I had a really busy week again. Originally I had hoped to sew a couple nights. It’s the week in the month that Hubby had fire and first responder meetings so on those night I always sew. It didn’t work that way though. I really didn’t touch a machine until Saturday and then it wasn’t quilting that had my attention. It was this….
I am reupholstering the cushions for our wicker couch.
If you’re a long time reader you might remember that this was once brown when we had it at the farm house.
Several months ago I repainted it. I had plans to do the cushions immediately but that didn’t happen. Then once I got to it I didn’t like the color of the fabric. I ended up a JoAnn’s finally and got new fabric. I put it off the reupholstering and put it off. I hate doing it.
I thought about having it done professionally and then thought again…I am a frugal resourceful girl. What am I thinking about hiring someone to do a job I can do-just don’t want to do…besides I have reupholstered these before and it didn’t kill me.
So I got them sewn and then couldn’t find the staple gun. I asked Hubby. He couldn’t find it. He hadn’t seen it since we moved. Sunday he went and bought one. Sunday night I tried to finish the cushions. No luck. The stapler is a piece of junk and doesn’t work….so the cushions are back in the garage waiting for a stapler. UGH. I am closer to finished though and I do have the hardest part done.
While I sewed the cushions I did manage to get seven quilt blocks done sewing them leader and ender style.
I’m off to Amazon. I am buying a stapler. I can have it delivered to my door quicker than I can find the time to get to town and buy a new one and now that I have the hard part done, I want the project completely finished.
