A little sick and a little trick.......

I've been a little "under the weather" (who made that up, anyway?) of late. But, I suppose about two thirds of you that are reading this have been, also. What a year for sicknesses!


Before the full brunt of it hit me, I was able to do this little project over the weekend.

I slicovered this little wing back chair. I've had this fabric and was waiting for a speical way to use it and I just love it on here. I shared this photo with my PRH friends today and expained my problem with finding a place to put it. They are fighting over who will take it from me and put it in their living rooms to sit in and relax, I imagine. It does look comfy and I can picture myself curled up reading a book in it.

While lying around in bed feeling crappy, my mind conjured up all kinds of things that I should be doing instead...laundry, sweeping out the car from last summer, cleaning the garage so we can park the cars in it and not have to shovel 6 to 8 inches of snow off them every morning, washing those two windows that didn't get it in the "fall" cleaning, making the four jackets I cut out in August, organizing my craft stuff, sorting through all of my fabric, put away the Thanksgiving decorations (I never even got out the Christmas ones), write my will, read 72 magazines and file my nails.

Instead, I drifted in and out of sleep and ached like I'd been beaten with a lead pipe. Every awakening finds me taking inventory of my body parts as I am sure someone has come in and ripped them off of me while I was sleeping.

I'm feeling much better now and have decided to get back to work. So, I've made quite a few velvet and satin roses, dyed some lace, listed some new crafting goodies and started a few gifts for friends that need to be done soon. I also have four custom orders that need supplies, so I'll have to go out in this snow covered world and get those tomorrow.

Oh, and my PRH friends that want to take that little chair off my hands will just have to find something else for those bare spots in their living rooms. I have found a use for it......


It's holding my coffee cup!

No, that's not a GIANT coffee cup, it's a mini chair and is available for purchase in Aunt May's Cottage.
It really doesn't take up much room as you can tell.
