Sitting Pretty

     A few years back I was given this wonderful glider. It's been well-used and enjoyed and the cushion covers showed that fact! Nevertheless, it sat in the corner of my living room so needing a new cover. This last Thanksgiving as I was busily preparing my home for a crowd of about 30 for Turkey Day, I kept thinking, What am I going to cover those glider cushions with? They need something! I had enthusiastic fantasies of recovering both cushions with the material I used for my curtain valances in my back room. I wanted to "blend" my rooms together using the beautiful fabric I purchased years ago. I kept putting the project off because I had never tried anything so ambitious before.
     And then the irrestistable urge hit. Crazily, on Wednesay I set out to work recovring the chair cushions thinking, Why not?! Sure enough, as God was so gracious and helpful to me, I did get the chair recovered in time. The chair turned out passable for Thanksgiving, but it's taken till way past Valentines Day to redo and finish the rest of it. It still isn't perfect, but it was my first attempt, I've learned a couple of things, and I'm satisfied overall. Besides, I have many more sewing projects to start!
Needs some loving....

This top part was harder than the bottom!

I was pleased with how this bottom cushion turned out

All done!
