Friday night / day Sew In

Good Morning!

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Yesterday was Friday night sew in -- and since I will be starting back to work on Monday -- I crafted most of the day yesterday. I have collected 3 chairs that I wanted to make into Chair Planters - I had gotten 2 of them as roadside treasures (you know other peoples trash is my treasure) and 1 I had paid $2 for. The paint is what we have in the garage, so this project cost very little and I think they turned out great.

This is the first one -- It is made of a very hard wood, Dear Hubby had a heck of a time cutting the hole - and of course this is the first one we did, so he was not too thrilled at this point.

This is chair 2 -- I paid $2 for this one -- I should have taken before pictures it was just your normal brown wood chair, with a much softer wood seat, so Dear Hubby was now on board with this project :) You can enlarge this photo and see I painted little green and yellow dots on the back wooden bars.

The 3rd chair is not completed, I have painted it yellow and this morning I plan to finish it. I will post a photo tomorrow.

Then we we came inside I needed to finish up this block for the Jan Patek BOM I am doing, so I finished appliqueing this block.

All in all it was a productive day!

How was your Friday Night Sew In?

Happy Stitches!
