been a while...

So it's been a while, I've been fighting with this desktop. Still don't know what's wrong with it but it'll just randomly crash, so hopefully it'll let me post this before taking a nose dive again.



This weekend Trey and I are going to a wedding, so while in town we are going to see our friends who are having a baby boy! I made them this quilt. I guess I should also mention they LOVE john deere stuff.

The Ric Rac-ish Office Chair


I entered this in the Craftster.org "Hot Seat" Challenge. I'm very excited! It was my first ever challenge!

The Back Story: It just so happened that I was planning on redoing an office chair when the challenge popped up. My mom called me and said they had bought my dad a new office chair. His blue one, although extremely comfortable was dusty (he sandblasts rocks) and grimey. I told her I'd take it! I happened to be going to Ft. Worth to visit my aunt. While out antiquing I happened across an entire bolt (about 4 yards) of this fabric for 10 bucks! Heck yea! It goes PERFECT in my sewing room!So, Voila, The Ric Rac-ish chair:
