So, these are the before pictures.
Then, I ripped them apart, lol! ;)
At times, I felt like I was standing on my head in order to do so.
I managed to get them all apart.
This little piece was the dickens!
I think it was glued on using super insane crazy glue.
It was one of the arm pieces, I felt like I was tearing it off fiber by fiber.
But, I won that battle. Never underestimate sheer will!
Then, I made patterns.
Cut out the fabric, glued them all up nice together, glued them to the settee and found glue spots. :(
Oh, no! Not glue spots!! :(
Ripped it all apart and started all over again.
Now, they're done. :)
I was really pleased that I could recycle the little twist cord at the bottom of the seat cushion from the original upholstery. Not bad for a first, errr... second try. ;)
I got this in the mail the other day from A-M of Little Time Wasters.
Monet is one of my most favorite artists. Isn't this just wonderful? I love it! :)
This is going to look great in the living room above the couch or in the dining room. I can't decide.
Oh, and I signed up for my very first swap, I'm very excited about it. It's being hosted by Caterina of Le Minis di Cockerina. I've done a few trades in the past, but, I always knew what I was getting in the past. The theme of this swap is Easter.
Well, I had in my mind what I wanted to make and went to the store for supplies. Nothing caught my eye. Then, I saw something that did catch my eye and the wheels in my mind began to spin. I've made this kind of thing in real life many times but, never had attempted it in miniature before. I'm dying to show it to you, but you'll have to wait....
New followers to welcome! Paky and Minilisa. They are participating in the Easter swap as well, in fact, I'm getting my swap from one and sending to the other. :)
Oldest is enjoying being home for spring break. Well, she's not really home... see, she had to leave me a note. ;)
