Hello there...

Hello there lonely little blog.  Did you miss me?  I missed you!  I have been busy though, with life in general.  I'll just say that Baseball season is over in this household and we are looking forward to the slower pace of summer.  I have been working on a few projects though that I wanted to share.


A couple of chairs and some pillows.  The two chairs both started out in a lovely 80's wood.  Painted one a nice glossy white and the other a Spa blue.  Recovered the white chair in a lovely blue striped vintage fabric from my mother.  She's had it in her stash for so long, probably from when my brothers were little, it has to be at least 45 years old, if not more.  (Sorry all are getting old...damn, that does include me as well!)  I was pretty pleased with my first ever match-the-striping-piping attempt.  Even had to go over and check out my p's professionally upholstered stripe chair, and realized they cheesed out and used a solid piping.  Even more proud of myself!  hahaha! 
After finishing the white chair, I wasn't so put off by the other little rocker chair.  Oh yea, it's a spring rocker, the little blue chair.  It had a piped cushion that I was a little afraid of, but after tackling the white chair, I grew some courage up.  So, whipped out the blue flower fabric, the cream vintage poly, added my piping and away I went! 
The little pillows were sort of an after thought.  I've had this really cool stencil book that I've been wanting to use.  I finally did, and now I'm addicted.  I've got two more pillows in the making, and one dreamed up.  Can't wait to get started on them! 
In other news, my little boy is just about to graduate from 5th Grade!  I can't believe it.  We just found out yesterday that he made Honor Roll for the year!  We were so proud of him we had to go celebrate with my parents and take him to his restaurant of choice.  I can't wait to see what next year brings.
