A little something for myself, Grandma’s chair revamp

This is something I’ve been meaning to get to for some time… you know, life tends to get in the way lol. I used to keep this nice old chair which belonged to my Grandmother in my bedroom but after the move there just wasn’t room. So I thought it would be nice to have in the dining room/living room area. However the fabric on it had definitely seen better days. Since it was probably the very first thing a visitor would see when entering the front door it was time for a make over. 

Once I managed to remove the cat from the chair, … several times… (it’s one of her favorite spots) the chair is now sporting a new removable and washable slip cover. The colours are the from the fabric I used to make my dining chair cushions from and also a small runner. 

I loved the bows on the chairs so put a nice big on on the back of the chair to help hold the cover in place. A button on each side hold the cover around the front legs. I loosely based the design on one I found on the Internet.

Anyway here are a couple pictures of the finished chair.

All settled in to the new place

I’m so happy to finally be settled into our new place. Well, almost settled… We still have a few areas to do yet but I am excited that the sewing room is done! I can’t wait to get back to making things. 

Here is are a couple pics of what the new sewing room looks like…



I just want to add that the experience we had with our movers were just wonderful… much better than our last move which was a much shorter distance! This was a long distance move and everything when very well, with minimal damage. They were professional at all times, courteous, and efficient. They primarily work in the Fraser Valley but they do long distance as well. They are called Go 42 Easy Moving and their number is 604 616 0926. I recommend them highly and don’t mind giving them a plug.
