I have sooo many projects to do and I’m sooo stuck in neutral. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been physically able to craft, I forgot I have this tendency. Except for sedentary things like knitting; that I’m doing. I saw a cowl pattern I liked, changed it up a little to make it 2 colors not one and that’s under way. It’s my waiting room project. I get all excited over an idea, get all the materials I’ll need to do it–and get stuck. Once I get myself over the hurdle of getting started, I’ve been fine, it’s the getting started. Now it’s been so long since I’ve done a big sewing job like covering my couch cushions, I measured again for the zipper placement and found I bought zippers the exact width of the cushions. The originals have zippers that wrap around the sides about 2″ per side. I’m sewing with upholstery weight velvet, so it’s heavy fabric. Should I go ahead or should I return the zippers for bigger ones? I’m inclined to do the second but is that just putting it off?
Do I put a shorter zipper on that just goes corner to corner?
See why I need to protect the upholstery? This is just 2 of 3 dogs.
My living room still isn’t close to getting painted because every time (3 now) we’re sure what color we want, we see something that changes our minds. Thank you Pinterest! I’d much rather change my mind by looking at a picture than by looking at the color on the walls and hating it. And hubs has agreed wholeheartedly with each change of heart. I haven’t painted in 10-15 years and it’s going to be hard. Hubs is in the same boat so we really want to get it right the first time. So much for having it done by Thanksgiving. I’ll be doing well to get the clutter under control again! Dust allergy + clutter do not get along. My daughter has committed to come here and to cook (yay!), my mother-in-law has committed to come, as has my sister. They’ll just have to ignore my multi-colored living/dining room wall. This is predicted by my mother-in-law’s oncologist to be her last Thanksgiving (she’s 95 and otherwise healthy) and hubs is an only child so it’s good she’ll have the meal here with her only child, hence only grandchildren.
