I had an old pink chair that I loved, but it was sagging badly and it's too costly to restore it. Isn't it sad that it is cheaper to buy a new chair, probably made in a third world country rather than restoring an old chair from the 20's? I thought there might be another solution. I searched on Marktplaats (a kind of eBay) and I found this chair for 6 euros (about 10 USD)! It looks almost exactly like the chair I had, and it's in a good condition. It only needed a new cover and I can do that myself. This is the result!
I also painted my red bookcase the same off white as the woodwork. I tidied away a lot of books and papers that don't have a special meaning. That created a lot of room! I also like the fact that my toy sewing collection shows up a lot better with the white walls and bookcase.
Do you remember my brown quiltrack. My Dh made it white and aged it. I LOVE the result :-)
My new fresh white room needs a new wall hanging. A quilt Kathie started inspired me. You can find it in The Ultimate Quilting by McCormick Gordon. As pink is my favourite colour I came up with the idea of making a mini quilt with the same feel about it. I can't wait to quilt it (and yes I know some of you are thinking: "How is Pim's quilt coming along?").
Lastly let me show you a bag I made using Bonnies Maverick stars. It is a sample for the quilt shop . I will be teaching a class to make the bag.
