Oooooh, I love slipcovers for chairs. I made a couple of sets for my daughter. Since her cats like to lounge in the dining chairs and shed a lot, she keeps the spare set clean and ready to slip on if company comes. I'm sure yours will be gorgeous - white muslin looks so fresh and airy. Maybe you could put a band of blue bias tape or grosgrain ribbon around the skirt to pick up the blue in the room and your new tile.

Are you using a pattern? I could use a set of those my DW's cats are actively trying to destroy my dining room. I have been married less then a year, I am still allowed to call them "her cats". I can usually follow a pattern, perhaps I will break out the sewing machine.

yes i have a pattern McCall's 3217. it has pieces and instructions for six different chair styles. what little i have done is fairly simple. i just have to be in the mood to sew, so it has been slow going. sounds like a plan ie the cats, muslin is very inexpensive and even less if u can get it on sale.

that sounds cool. it is important to not over do the blue. curtains are a waverley fabric with blue flowers, the dining room is a blue tole that was here when i moved in.

yes the airy aspect of muslin, as well as cost was a big factor in fabric choice.

wish i know how to do the picture thing , so u could see how it looks. it is always a work in progress. lol

Lefse, I know what not getting sleep is like so I pray for lots of zzzzzz's for you tonight.

I can't do laundry because the border is sick and the machines are near his bedroom and make too much noise to sleep.

I can't bake because my knee has swollen double again and so I can't stand too long.

There is no point planning a big supper because everyone is sick.

So, my schedule is waiting on my patients and playing on the computer all day so I can keep my leg up!

Life is tough

Food shopping, we usually go on Wed. so hubby can use his 5% off senior card. Also go to the vet to pick up Gracie (cat) who had to stay overnight for an enema, have to wait for the phone call so she can be picked up. I hate leaving my furbabies at the vet for any reason, I miss them even for one night.
