Last week I finally made a start on my dining room table, actually the chairs...
This is going to be a bigger job than I anticipated. The table itself has sort of split and lifted slightly in the middle so hubby needs to attach some wood underneath so he can hammer it down and he also needs to cut out some seat for the chairs. It did originally have springed seats but they were all out of wack (which was not mentioned when I bought them from ebay) so all that needs to be done.
I have been painting them by hand and it takes me about an hour to give a chair 1 coat. It is so fiddley and it was just last Friday I was saying to hubby I need to buy an electric spray gun so I can just spray them. I would ask hubby to spray them but he has so much on his plate right now I thought I'd just do them myself.
Anyhow you wouldn't believe what I found at a garage sale I went to on Saturday...
Now is that freaky or what..! and only 5 bucks.. bargain!
I haven't tried it out yet as this week I decided I really need to get some sewing out of the way..
These fabric squares will be a ballerina quilt soon.. I am making it as a gift for my neice's little girl.
She is just adorable and reminds me soo much of Lisa when she was a baby! She melts my heart! The squares in the background are for a quilt for a customer. All floral, it's going to be so pretty.
I'll show pics when it's done. Ok better go as I have lots more cutting to do.. hope you have all been well..
take care, Maryann
