Thanks for all the nice comments.
The office chair wasn't really hard to do. Making the patchwork fabric from remnants took me time, especially the pieces that are diagonally sewn because I had never done that before. Even so, it took me a day but I thought I would be done in a couple hours. The difficult part was stapling the bottom fabric as the stapler wasn't very strong and many staples did not go through the wood. For the next chair, I will try to make an cover like the one for the top( more like a pillow cover or with straps underneath and no stapling) so I can wash it easily.

Kbrison, the baby sweater is very cute. The colors remind me of what I knitted for my first daughter, about the same time you started. I can't believe you kept an unfinished project for so many years!
The blankets for the shelter are a very generous idea.
The sherpa vest are adorable. They make me think of a shepherd. maybe you could make the rest of the outfit and the shepherd's dog too!
The pink barbie dress is beautiful, may I have one in my size please?

Thanks again!
Inviting and summery is just what I aimed for. You're welcomed to visit and enjoy it but a plane ride is likely needed. And breezy is good, especially on the humid days.

Alwaysinmyroom, since you don't live in a warm place, maybe your cats don't shred as much as mine. It's really incredible the amount of cat's hair produced in a few days! Sometimes, crafting for cats works and other times, they just ignore what I made.

Beautiful.
I like how you "cut" the silhouette in small spaces to embroider with different colors. Your design is just right.

Thank you! Smiley

Alwaysinmyroom, the top is removable but not the bottom. I got overly active with the stapler! So, I made a pad for the bottom.

I also made one for the top to put when I'm not around in hope of preventing the cat to scratch my chair.

Then I sew a cover for the keyboard as she likes to sit on it.

I have been busy giving a fresh coat to the living room.

First, I removed all my craft supplies from there. It still wasn't looking very good. There was too much of a mix of furniture collected other the years but with nothing tying them together. I didn't want to spend much money so buying new furniture and accessories was out. I decided I should use what I already had. Since I had light and dark wood, I opted for a mahogany color and since I already had made covers for some sitting a couple years ago I want with turquoise.

I darkened the pine shelves with mahogany stain. While I was at it, I also put a new coat and the dark furniture so it would hide all the tiny dings and dents they acquired other the years. They look new now. I painted the sofa, the day bed and the armchairs turquoise and made new covers for the pillows. I also painted the low table and the lamps' shafts.
 

I used an old kid table with peeling off yellow paint to make a new TV stand as the old TV stopped working and we bought a way too big new one(It didn't seem that big in the store!). So I sanded it, painted it, cut and added a shelf for the DVD player and game consoles.


I lightly sanded the rattan chairs and gave them a mahogany stain too. Then, I made new covers for the chair cushions.


While I was sewing the cushion covers, I saw my ordinary old black office chair. I imagined it repainted and with bright patchwork fabric. It took me longer than I thought but here it is.

Fluffypants, I would not have picked up the cabinet if it had been for free as it was too dark and oldish and plasticky but I would have been wrong. The cabinet after your makeover is bright and modern. I also noticed it has thin elegant legs. Your living room looks just perfect now.

Pinokeeo, the baby spoon is lovely but the boxes are amazing.

Bunny, your ATC looks like an illustration from a book. Is this Medusa?

Hello Bluejanuary. I looked at your lists. There are lots of fun stuff in there, especially the Potter ones and the artistic creations. I'd love to see the rooms finished.
