Of course the image is sideways!
We looked for a few weekends and found an apartment that she likes and we feel good about. More $ than we had hoped but it is in a great location for her and has some amenities that will save money in the long run.
Now we are working on furniture for her. We've made numerous trips to furniture stores and IKEA. She finally decided on the sofa she wants from IKEA and that can be delivered to her apartment when she gets moved. I found 2 of these chairs for a great bargain this week.
I loved the lines and that the frame is solid wood. Knowing the look and color scheme she wants, I have a vision for them. Found labels under the chairs that say they were made at the Paoli Chair Company in Paoli, Indiana in 1975!
Hope to finish these up in a couple of days.
Then we have some kitchen table chairs and an end table to paint. Good thing this school year just ended for Emma!
My biggest sewing project to get finished a few weeks ago was this.
This is my favorite picture as I love how it looks out on the green grass! This is just the top before quilting/binding.
Here it is all done. Feet not included.
This is the quilt, "Bricks in a Barnyard" by Bonnie Hunter, from her book, Scraps and Shirttails II. I took this class with her in January.
I gave this quilt to my great niece, Carly. She and her husband and my GREAT-GREAT nephew will welcome to their family a little boy from Africa sometime in the next year. They are having a fundraiser soon and I gave this to her to use at it.
I am making 2 pillows for Emma's apartment also. I have had vein surgery on both legs in the last 3 weeks so there have been days when I couldn't sit or stand at a machine so I got all the yo-yo's done and just need to get them finished. The blue tape is there so I would know how large I want the finished pillow tops to be.
See you soon!
