DIY is Now Complete!


It is official! 3 months of off-and-on, start-and-stop, stop-and-go work is finished. Here is the chair with the bottom cushion sewn.

When I say completed, I mean, seams pressed, threads clipped, basting stitches removed, the whole kit-and-caboodle! And of course, as it always is with me, I am not quite sure how I feel about it. When I work on a project and own it for such a long time, the relief that follows the completion of the project is bliss, but somehow, I am always underwhelmed with my work. Maybe I am just spoiled because I can realize my own vision. Who's to say.

What do you think?

Isn't it great the way the pearlized metallic in the Rock Candy fabric just pops in the light of the camera flash?
And oh yes, mental note -- gotta get a cain of Scotch guard! Don't want this getting all stained and dirty. I have several months of company coming and much wear-and-tear ahead!


  1. Ooo... beautiful! Can't wait to park my heiny on it!

  2. I love it .... Danette
