new look...

I'm not sure why I've got the fall 'nesting' syndrome going on so early... it's still hot here in the San Francisco bay area... but I've got it bad! I want to completely re-do my house. Like NOW.
For years (I'm talking something like 10!) I've had on my 'to do' list the project of slipcovering our dining room chairs. When we bought them they came with their own set of slipcovers but they never fit quite right and I never really liked the fabric-although it was a million times better than the actual upholstery on the chairs. (The "old" is the check on the right)
So I made a pattern out of muslin. And then actually sewed it together 2 different times to make adjustments so that I could get it to fit just right...
Success! It fit like a glove.
I absolutely love the new look. The colors coordinate so nicely with my living room furniture. Shoulda done this years ago!
I've got 4 completed now... only 4 more to go...
