even though we have a service warranty on the sofas, i’ve been LAZY in getting the request to have a repair done. the top seam on the loveseat separated many many months ago and i have failed in getting the request to have it repaired in a timely fashion.
lazy lazy lazy.
so-o today i decided to take matters into my own tiny little hands and make it work.
i learned the art of whip stitching. it’s like a blind stitch. and i think it’s going to be my stitch of choice for anything sewn by hand. maybe it’s just the cute little curved needles that makes me think i look “cool” when i’m sewing. ha ha- NOT! ! but i will say that the seam is repaired and looks pretty much like the OTHER repaired seam we had done by the “professional” last year on the other sofa!!
josh says only time will tell…
we shall see.
but with my new beloved curved needles i also finally made new throw pillows for the sofa. i’ve had the material for a little over a month and was just procrastinating on getting them done.
i will say that the new pillows are really pretty. i found a material that has a cream background and a leaf pattern (lizzy loves leaves- everywhere we go she collects a leaf and has a box at the house that her leaves are stored) in multi colors of blues greens and gold. perfect pallete to accompany my starry night picture that hangs over the fire place. it’s my most favorite painting.
so yeah- whipping those stitches out, getting stuff done.
better late than never, right? 😉
