Revamp

Hello and how are you all? hope you are having a good week, I have managed to fix my computer problems.

 I  have found trying to fix the problem so frustrating. I thought I could fix it my self  then humbly had to ask my daughter to fix the problem for me.This generation of children know computers like the back of their hands dont they!



 

Last post i showed you a blanket i wanted to revamp. I found a really easy crochet edging from pintetest and so far so good. I have also been doing some sewing, making a cover for my two seater.
This green chair which I love used to reside in the spare room. AKA the busy room as I call it. Everyone uses  the spare room for their hobbies.

 We so desperately needed more seating In the living room unfortunately we did not want to then buy a second chair to match our black and gold decor in our living room. The obvious answer to our problem was to make a cover for the chair.

My fabric came from ikea, very reasonably priced too. Im no way a natural when it comes to sewing and so it was not plain sailing a lot of the time. I added some trim and some buttons hubbys bit of imput,  bless him for taking a interest. Glad it is all finished and the colour schemes all matching. Needs a good iron then im really done.
Hope you all had a lovely Valentine's weekend, hugs to you all x

  2. Your blanket looks really pretty with the green edging, Joy, and what a great job you've done with the cover for your two seater - it really is lovely and I like the buttons feature, that sets it off very nicely!
    Glad to see your computer seems to be working again and I guess the test will be whether or not this message comes through to you!!!
    Hugs, Joy xo

  9. You have been busy! Good for you. I think you did a wonderful job on the slipcover and the trim on your blanket is looking good too. It is nice that you have a built in computer tech, lol. It can sure save you a lot of grief. Might be a good bonding experience too if you get her to show you some things on the computer. Have a great weekend. xox
