NEW! Sort of...

You'll be thrilled to know that I reupholstered this couch! Many of you know that I've been pining for a new couch, and a few of you also know that I have set my cap at re-upholstering one. Well, the opportunity just came, and I seized it. My friend Trine's brother (I think?) gave her this couch, which she then very generously passed on to me. It was comfy, and a nice style, but really really really...not white anymore. Well, anyhow--now it's green. What do you think???



P.S. Stay tuned for Josie's birthday pics and other family treasures!

Incredible!! I'm having visions of my Mother and I am suddenly wishing I was that talented!! How did you do that with a little 1 year old running around? I can't seem to accomplish anything with Jonas!! You are awesome.

Oh and P.S. is that 52 weekend projects book easy to follow and understand? I saw it on your blog and it's in my cart on amazon and now I'm wondering whether or not to just go for it! Let me know.

Actually, it's really NOT that easy to follow the instructions. Most of the projects are just fun to look at and get ideas for, but some of them that really do require instructions are pretty vague. It kinda assumes you have a working knowledge of what they're talking about. Like, when you're making curtains it says "sew piping on" which is fine if you do know what piping is, and how to sew it on. ETC. So, MOST of it is pretty clear, but there are a few projects you need to figure out a bit. And PS. Josie was the hardest part of the whole couch. She always wanted to sit on my fabric when I was cutting, or just bounce and play on the couch the entire time....
