This has been a whirlwind of a weekend!! Cameron had a double header Friday night and another doubleheader Saturday! And to complicate matters further, they were all away games! That plus trying to get my projects done, have kept me in constant motion! It's good for me though! lol I had several projects lined up for this weekend, so let's get started!
This is the best before photo I could find of my dining room. Kind of blah! (Chloe is ever present on the scene.) I have my eye out for a new table and chairs, but this old cheapie is what I have right now. I covered the seats and I liked this fabric at the time, but it competes with the rug. What was I thinking?
I have mentioned that the sewing machine and I are not that good of friends and that, sadly is still true. And, I have also mentioned I can't measure! Even with all of those obstacles, I think things turned out fairly well. It was not smooth sailing though, not but a long shot. My girlfriend, Janice, gave me the sewing machine and told me that would neet a "foot". I said, do I have to have one? She said YES! So off to the sewing machine place I go (this is on Friday afternoon). I tell the woman I need a foot. She says, long shank or short shank. I have no idea! Give me one of each! Brought them home, it was a short shank. Put the foot on and then start to try to figure out how to thread the thing. So many little thingys to run it through. I think I have it figured out and the thread just wads up in a tangled mess! I obviously do not have it right. Had to leave to go to doulble header number one. Saturday morning, 7:00 a.m. I am up and back at the sewing machine. Rethread and rethread and rethread and I finally get it right! Thank goodness!
There are my dishes. I found them at TJ Maxx and loved them.
AND AFTER AGAIN....
