Hurray for the plaid, white and blue.



Hurray for it being finished, that is. I thought the fabric was going to be a stripe, which would have been slightly easier. This slipcover was pretty tricky, with the way the fabric has to make way for the arms, and all. So much for work......

I am having way too much fun blogging..... here is a picture of my thimble collection. I keep them in a box in my living room because I LOVE to watch kids put them on their fingers. ( It gives them something to do too, since there are not too many "kid" items in our home right now.)



Here is another use for thimbles:



Tom, if you are reading this, I am going down to the "workroom" to get busy right now!

Thimbles are fun for kids. In my house we just used black olives from a can.

Love the slipcover, but I hate working with plaids. You did a great job!

Beautiful slipcover/upholstery -- nice job matching the plaid. To my mind the shortcoming of stripes in such a project is that they wAvE this way and that. Ack. I am enchanted with your impressive thimble collection.
