Despite all the sighing and revelry, a little progress was made, too. Thanks to Greg, I was finally able to get my childhood kitchen chairs recovered. It was a hard decision, but the Sweet Potato Vine upholstery fabric was the finalist, as our decor leans toward primary colors. I also think this design enhances the Scandinavian Modern look, which I love.
Some of my Prairie Gothic scraps inspired me to stitch up a couple new reversible pillows, too. I think they are in keeping with the "green" theme, especially with the happy ball fringe.
The reverse sides are simply single squares of fabric, but the quilting spices them up nicely. In fact, they look so cool and comfortable in the garden, that now I'm thinking of covering the porch furniture in a similar fashion.
As I have written this entry the green outside seems to have intensified and the sky is darkening! Ah!! A perfect day to be buried among books and fabric... heavenly! And perhaps the ideal evening to watch The Wizard of OZ. "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!"
