As I mentioned I am now 35! turning 35 has been a bit traumatic for me. It started out great, last week Grandma came to town, we had a wonderful time, shopping around, thrifting, talking and just being together.
We found a great bolt of twill fabric for only $1.49/yard and I finally got Grandma to agree to make me a slipcover for my sofa and chair. We’ve had the same sofa/chair set for 7 years. I love the size and style but not the fabric. It’s a dark hunter green but faded in some spots and I’m just plain sick of it. It’s overstuffed and the arms flair out which makes it impossible to buy a premade slipcover.
I’ve tried so many different brands it’s unbelievable. None of the slipcovers fit the arms. It’s taken her 3 days so far, stolen moments here and there with countless pins and trips to the sewing machine. Hopefully it will be done soon and we can get on with her visit!
The kids threw me a party, daddy got us a HUGE sushi platter, a wonderful cake, and I got gobs of wonderful presents.
Here’s what I got:
*Roots on DVD
*I Love Lucy volume 4 on DVD
*A lovely Jim Shore Statuette
*An Oster Blender
*A beautiful frame that boy2001 read to me… the frame is engraved, thank-you mother…
It was really nice with all the people I love the most in one room!!
