we are slowly getting healthy around here. i'm so tired of being sick, and just plain ready for spring. i can't wait to get outside and play in the dirt!!
troy went bird hunting last weekend, so we had a relaxed, slumber party in the living room kind of weekend. my mom and nana came over (with chinese food!), we watched a ton of movies, played some wii, and i finished piecing my solids quilt top.
and i know the picture is terrible - late night photography is never a good idea! i need to get some batting and get it finished, i'm giving it to our cousins who just had a baby boy, welcome will!
i began working on reupholstering this chair our neighbor gave us. the kids like it a lot, but i couldn't take the plaid anymore.
i am using a green gingham i found at wallyworld for 1.99 a yard! i bought it without a project in mind, and it turns out i had just enough. there's not even enough left for a pillow. i also decided i need to paint that wood. maybe white?
helpful upholstery advice - make sure you have staples for your staple gun before you tear into your chair. i am at a standstill until i can get to the store for staples. sigh. and since we have a winter blast headed our way, it may be a few days. they just cancelled afternoon preschool. maybe i'll work on my postage stamp quilt top today!
i'll leave you with a pic troy took yesterday - pretty good looking kids if i say so myself!
