Who would have thunk it? The patchwork covers... work! After a huge day on the sewing machine, I managed to finish the most complicated sewing project I've ever taken on. Whilst the top cushion cover is completely finished, the bottom cover is still just pinned on to the chair. I want to sand the chair first and don't want to get any mess on my new covers. This way, I will be able to take it off and fix it on properly once the wood has been sorted. I will also be able to use the bottom section as a template for the other chairs. Hopefully I will have enough fabric samples for another one or two chairs... will just have to wait and see!
It's been so satisfying having a creative project on the go. As I mentioned a few days ago, the writing is really feeling like hard work! So I needed a creative break from my creative 'work'... is there some irony in this?!
