Sorry--rushing again--I have to drive 2 hours to son's JV football game. Here is the finished chair--the cording around the back needs some work still, I will probably redo it. I made a quick little faux fur pillow to keep it from being so traditional. I restained the wood, with a dark gel stain. The pleats in the back part of the chair just happened, like they were in the original. I ripped the seams apart on the seat cushion and used the pieces for the pattern. I reused the zipper.
I am back from football. I couldn't get the pictures to load before I went. We won in the last few seconds of the game 23 to 21, with a 38 yard field goal. My son blocked a punt and recovered the ball, which then set up one of our touchdowns. What a fun game! Here is a picture from tonight's game and a picture of his little sister cheering him on.
I had an amazing time at Beth Moore. She is an incredible Christian speaker (this is my third time seeing her). Her testimony is real and she is so humble. Her message really spoke to me. These are my girlfriends and I before the Beth Moore event. (No I am not pregnant--it is the jacket! But my dear friend in purple is, after three years of infertility--and baby was conceived the old-fashioned way!)
