Beautiful, especially the draping on the skirt.  I love the fabric as well - don't think it would have been as striking in a solid...

I'm trying to find leather handles, but am having very little luck.  I think I'm going to go to a thrift store and get an old belt!

I loved this pattern from Berroco  http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/damask/damask.html

And I grew up in New Orleans, so I love Fleur De Lis, hence...

It just needs some handles!

Here it is before felting

Made with Knit Picks Bare and WoTA in soot ( I think...)  It was a stash buster!

I've finally finished something!!! Grin

This is the Lacy High Me Tight from Tracey Ullman's book

I used Knit Picks Gloss Sock Yarn.  It's a lot warmer that I thought it would be, so I won't be wearing it anytime soon!!

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / New Cushions for Old Chairs! on: July 09, 2008 06:21:09 PM
First of all, I have to say that after many failed attempts at home dec projects, I finally have a winner.  So, I'm proud of these babies - SUPER PROUD!

Now the story...
When my husband's grandfather died in 1999, my sister-in-law had just moved into her house.  We were still in a tiny apartment, so any furniture that would be passed on would have obviously gone to her, because she had the room.  She got a pair of beautiful Adirondack chairs that we're pretty sure Rob's grandfather made himself.  They were the perfect addition to Melinda's (SIL) dining room. 

Fast forward to last summer.  Melinda is remodeling and doesn't have room for the chairs anymore.  Since these were made by Rob and Melinda's grandfather, she wanted to keep them in the family, rather than give them or sell them to someone else. So we took them.  I think Rob and I were both secretly hoping she would want to get rid of them eventually, so we were happy to take them. 

The cushions were upholstered in a plaid that co-ordinated with the floral curtains in Melinda's dining room.  Really cute in there, but it didn't go with our black walls and Picasso prints. 

Here's one before:

Rob picked out the fabric - we got that on sale with a 40% coupon to JoAnn's.  We bought the foam on sale on July 4th - 50% then an extra 10% off at the register.  I bought the batting today for 40% off.  I made the piping so that cost about 40 cents/yd. 

Here's what I made:

I made a couple of pillows with the leftover black from the piping, and made piping from the leftover print:

And here's the pair of them - disregard the crap in between them!!


Thanks for looking and reading all of that!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Bracelet on: June 22, 2008 09:20:57 AM
I was bored yesterday and didn't feel like cabling on my other project, so I got out the wires that had been exploding out of my thread drawer and some beads I bought and VIOLA!!!

I actually had this when I was done, but I thought it was too wide and sparse to look good

So I just folded it in half!
Here it is off...

Thanks for looking!
