I am finally posting the love seat slip cover I finished last week. This is the first time I have attempted a slip cover and although it isn't perfect, I am pretty happy with it. I am especially happy that the project is over!
I will say, getting it done entailed a great deal of pacing, stress eating, procrastination and anxiety. Just because I attempt these big projects does not mean I am filled with confidence. I have learned to do things scared. But it isn't easy! I took small bites, and it helped that the door behind the love seat holds my sewing / craft room so it was close to the machine. The next thing I need to find is a more colorful oriental rug. I bought this beige one after putting in the wood floors. I thought it would be a good neutral. After this project I am at my neutral limit. I also pretty much hate this rug now, so the search is on.
The sign was made by my youngest daughter for me for Christmas a few years ago, I love it! And the Boston fern came in from the porch when it got cold outside. It is a very messy plant, but I am so glad I have this lush green fern inside for the winter! This time of year I need real, live, green things.
The curtains are tablecloths I ordered online and used clips to hang them. They are actually the perfect length for curtains right out of the package and add a nice shot of intense color. And since I didn't spend a fortune on them (about $12!) I won't feel bad if I change them out later for something else. I did tell you I am fickle when it comes to decorating right?
I hope you are all having a great Valentines week. Do you know this February marks my 11th year blogging? I can't believe I have lasted that long! A big thank you to all of you who have visited an commented, many of you have been friends for the entire 11 years and I treasure those friendships and the encouragement I have found here so much! Thank you for hanging with me and giving me love, encouragement and support all these years. It means so much. 💖💖💖
Happy Valentines Day to you all!
