|So close... and yet so far away|
Said out loud: "For May, I'm just going to sandwich and quilt some of these many tops I've got going. I could have 5 wallhangings (or whatnot) done by the end of this month!"
Immediately, that goal got sidetracked into a series of home decor items. I mean, after all, we are living in a new home; and it needs to get to feeling homey before those UFO's need to be completed.
Here's the list: shouldn't be a problem to actually get these done in May, right?
1. New cover for Ikea Poang chair.
|Basic black = basically boring|
There are numerous sewists on Etsy (like this one) who would happily stitch me up a cover--I just didn't really like their fabric selection. So, with this actual project in mind, I will be buying more fabric. (Dang, going backward in the Fabric Destash yet again.)
2. New topper for buffet. Must be blue.
Old topper, even though it was two-sided, was not gonna work, color-wise. Fortunately, I am pretty sure I can make this from my stash.
3. Topper for new sofa table. Bling encouraged.
I was really pining after a mirror-topped sofa table, but the compromise involved buying an inexpensive (Ikea!) sofa table and then me sewing something with some shiny in it--using leftover fabric from our wedding last summer. Again, sewing from stash: win!
What do you think? A worthy adjustment of the goal for May?
If I manage to get all 3 projects pumped out (given the fact that I am traveling out of state two different times this month), I will feel pretty successful indeed.
