More details will be added over the next week or so so stay tuned.

I am having great fun crocheting along with Alexandra.  This is how my cushion is looking after the first 10 rounds.
I also took a picture of it on top of some black fabric because I think that is what I will use to make the cushion that it will cover.
I am trying to soften up my creative space a bit.  It is mostly hard surfaces except for an old vintage cushy chair. My plan is to put this cushion on this vintage chair I painted pink a couple of years ago. Hubs put a new seat on it for me to cover.
I have not been able to decide on fabric for for the seat so I think this will be a fun fix.  And while I am talking about making fabric decisions.  I have an old floor lamp that I also painted for this area. I have an old lampshade frame that I plan to cover for it.  I  also have not found just the fabric I want to cover it with, so this week while I was pressing an apron that once belonged to my mother I got this idea to tie it around the lampshade frame.

I think it looks cute!  But the thing is, it has wonderful big pockets to collect eggs with and I really wanted to use it for that purpose when the weather finally gets warm enough to wear it outside.  So this fix is temporary and I am still looking for just the right fabric to cover this frame with.  The search goes on!

I am so happy the weekend is here.  I am spending tomorrow hanging with my best friend in the city.  I have a list of supplies to look for that I need to continue on with some projects.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!  Blessings from our home in the woods.
