Yet Another...


Yes, another project. This one IS FINISHED. However, I can not show it to you yet :( I know. It seems like a bunch of empty promises lately. I have been sharing my camera, so right now I do not have it to take the finished photo.

But this is a cushion that was on our little love seat in the living room. The deck cushions have been patched once with some lovely creamy white Laura Ashley velvet fabric. (we used to have a beautiful Laura Ashely Shop nearby). this is one of the back cushions~ I have reworked the shape to fit a cute little wicker chair that I have had since Caitlin was a baby. In fact it was in her nursery and then in Douglas'. Well, I have now put it in the master bedroom, brightening a corner by our window. :)

I think I will have the camera later today~ in which case I will update this post with the after photo :)

*The dresser is just in need of placing the hinges back on (there is a debate on brass (the original hinges) or silver hinges. and selecting the final hardware. Definitely later in the week I will be able to show you this. i LOVE it :)

so check back in ~ I will place the after photo at the bottom of this post.
*** UPDATE~ I did not get my camera back so I will show the finished chair in a future post.... Oh Merci for your patience :)

Hi Mary,

Looking forward to seeing the finished projects.
I love Laura Ahsley too and have bought some lovely things at the shop.
I was so sad when I went to look last year and it had just gone. Must be the sign of the times, I suppose.
