Sew-a-thon

A friend I work with "hired" me to re-cover her patio cushions. I needed some dollars bills to help pay for my completely out of budget wedding invitations, and she needed some new patio cushions. The arrangement worked out great. This has been by far my biggest sewing project, so big that I had to call in help to get it done in time. Clare and I spent a many of hours staring at each other across this table....



We piped, hemmed, measured, cut, drank lots of coffee and wine till the wee hours of the night. I am really happy to publish this post because it means the long hours in front of my sewing machine and the tons of brown thread all over the house are over. But it also means that someone gets to enjoy her beautiful patio furniture again!!






Now if I could just get my patio to look like this!!!
