It’s been a while since I’ve written about what I’ve really been up to, besides glass of course. About a month ago my friend Rebekah decided we were going to learn to sew. I am usually up for trying most things, so I said sure. Rebekah commandeered her grandmother’s sewing machine and we were off to Hobby Lobby. After annoying the crap out of everyone in the fabric section and spending a lot more than we should have, we were armed and ready to make our first pillows.
Here is mine:
And here is Rebekah’s…otherwise known as the one my dog tried to steal.
We had a blast making them (even if it did turn out to be the most expensive pillow on the planet). You see, this led to me wanting a sewing machine, which hubby got me for valentines day. He’s so romantic. No, seriously. I really wanted it. Which led to me needing a sewing table of some sort.
So we went to the used furniture store and found this:
Real pretty right? Yeah, that’s what I thought. So I decided to paint it and Greg (Mr. Crafty), suggested I cover the drawers with fabric. This led to another trip to Hobby Lobby. You don’t even want to know how much I have spent at this point. Then Greg says he’ll line the drawers with cedar incense slats. So far I have resisted ordering the cedar. I think I’ll actually make something with my new sewing machine before I go that far. Anyway, the desk is all dolled up and ready for for public viewing. Whad’ya think?
It needs a matching chair doesn’t it? Look out used furniture store, here I come.
