A Good Book Anyone?

When Craig and I drove to town to pick up my sewing machine, he wanted to stop by a furniture store where I had spotted a chair I really liked thinking it would be perfect for an empty corner in our living room. It was discontinued and thus being offered at a great price. He decided to pick it up for me. I felt more than a little spoiled (and guilty!) since we had just shelled out a small fortune to have my machine refurbished. But I do LOVE it. It matches a lamp we already had perfectly. It's a very tempting little spot to read. I hope this summer to paint the hutch next to it black and then give it a bit of a stain glaze to age it.

How wonderful - your chair is beautiful!

As if my stash was not enough, my friend is going through her grandmother's two houses (one used for storage) - and she was a seamstress... plus, she saved everything, including greeting cards from the 40s. I came home with a bagful last night.

Thanks for the comments! The Hoss coincidence made me smile.

Hey! Glad you're doing the coat thing too.

I'm excited about it, Lindsay, but really intimidated as well. I've never made a coat. And what I want to make is kind of over-the-top... :(
