Sew much to do, Sew little time

Groan, groan, I know. When I run out of bad puns about sewing, perhaps I'll stop posting about sewing. =) Looks like I haven't posted about sewing since February! It seems like I haven't done a lot of sewing in that time either.

It was hard when things were getting packed up, and then there were boxes everywhere in the new house and nowhere to put a sewing machine. But somehow, in the midst of all that, I have done a few things.

An acquaintance wanted this chair:


covered.


A friend wanted a new cover made for this glider and ottoman (this is the new one, the old one was red):


I've also been continuing mending and hemming and altering and etc. This is the craziest thing I've had to repair recently:


And the patch worked out pretty well:


In the beginning, for the sewing room, we had our bed and a thousand boxes. I moved out the boxes and moved in a table.


But then we got to planning and thinking (and I got to complaining about my honey-do list!) and Jeremy built me this!


Much better. Now if we can just get the upstairs finished so we can move the bed out of here...

Yep, Jeremy makes some great shelves. I can't wait til the whole room is my sewing room! Perhaps by the fall...
