Progress!

Aug 19, 2009

IMG_4131

So….even if nobody believed in me (and I didn’t fully believe in myself), I have actually made some progress on the re-upholstering project that I’ve taken upon myself.  The couch may look pretty silly right now with the multi-fabric look, but I think it’s already starting to shape up.  And it only took me one night to do the back!!

Now we only have to hope that JoAnns will keep my fabric in stock and our household doesn’t get any more injuries.  I’ve got two pretty decent stab wounds from a pin being dragged across my arm and hand…and Bennett stepped on a rogue pin that was on the floor.  I thought I was being careful!

The pin on the floor was probably the work of my mischievous little puppy, George Michael.  I found him on our bed, pulling the pins one-by-one from the pin cushion that he got his little paws on.  Little stinker!!

    Your Aunt Gayle stepped on a pin, broke it off in her foot, and had to have surgery to get it out! She wore a walking boot for several weeks. She can sympathize with Bennett.

    And what is it about the pin cushion that pet like? I had a cat who did the same thing…

    Mom actually had the same thing happen to her…those Brockway women. 🙂

    I don't know what the deal is with pin cushions and pets. I remember when we lived in Hersey, our big dogs used to steal Mom's pincushion and pull all of them out as well. It's a mystery to me!!

    I have never broke off a pin in my foot. Not all the Brockway women are clumsy, some of us are just unlucky now and again. (I got attacked by the neighbors cat this week, no stiches but plenty of antibiotics).

    P.S. I love what you are doing to the couch.
