She runs AND she sews...

We have a new boomerang in residence here. Caitlin is in the process of buying a condo and as she waits (and waits) for the paperwork to be completed, she and Olive are here for a short stay.

And she is messing up my house big time...

But all for a good cause!

Recently,Caitlin and I made what was supposed to be a brief and focused trip to the fabric store. It was neither, and we came home with projects! And enthusiasm -- which, for the most part, has not left us though it has become a little..uh...intermittent.

Anyway, Caitlin has been messing up my house as she sews chair covers for her new-to-her dining room chairs.
Cait started with a pattern, but soon found it was way more complicated than it needed to be...
So she made up her own...She's good that way.
The finished product!
(Apologies for the bad exposure!)

And more bad camera action the colors don't show very well...but Cait chose a different fabric for each chair. What you can't see here is the mustard yellow color in the prints that will match her vintage formica & chrome table...It will be so cute!

And as for my projects? Well, yes, I had some...
But first Olive and I had to watch some TV.

It's football season, you know...

It looks like you are having a lot of fun having a girl around the house again. Enjoy!
The chairs are darling! I hope we get a condo tour via blog when she moves in and puts it all together.
