Hey there! I realized how busy I was this week when I looked over last week’s post! So I had just finished up the bamboo ottoman. I then grabbed two vinyl ottomans from my storage and was off running! By Friday I was at my upholsterer getting him to make me a few buttons. I have logged many hours on my sewing machine this week. Here is a picture story of my creations.
This beauty is listed and ready for a home! Next I decided to glam up the round ottoman with that awesome pink velvet I used on the x benches!
This one is also listed and ready to go! ☝️
Next up I am working on perfecting my sewing skills so I can crank out custom pillow covers. I used the ikat for my prototypes. Adding zipper access is important to me so I am working on my skills.
The reason I was hot for pillows is I want to start making some for my Adrian Pearsall couch which I plan on picking up in the coming weeks. It needs a full restoration which I will be coordinating and I figure if I get the pillows made it will excite me even more!
I posted a video this week where I was working on getting basement musty odor out of some 1971 Knoll yardage my aunt gave me. I used a vinegar steam and in 2 treatments, it is pretty much eradicated! Stop by my Facebook page and have a watch. The fabric is Dynamic, which was reissued a few years back and currently available at $165 a yard!!!!! So before I cut it I wanted to clean it, now I am practicing pillows! Ha.
THIS WEEKEND: I will be camping in the Catskills.....pretty much off the grid. I may randomly get alerts or emails but I know for a fact there is no service in the campground. I will respond to inquiries as soon as possible but after we arrive Friday through Sunday when we leave, do not expect a response. All orders purchased after Thursday night will ship the following Monday. I am pretty much shipping same or next day at this time so I would not say this is much of a delay, but just know it’s only because I am out of town. I am having an eBay buyer picking up some blow molds at our campsite to save him from driving all the way to PA from northeast of Binghamton! I love working work into my trips and glad to save him from a crazy road trip. Plus Jesus, Mary and Joseph will be our copilots on the trip! 😂👌 Thanks for all your support! I have been shipping out at least 2 orders a day recently! Lots of textiles on the move. I just restocked Kantha Quilt placemats and have 7 more sets available. There are some at my mall space locally as well.
Have a great week!
