I love "fall back". That extra hour really comes in handy. It is also more in tune with my natural body clock. Much easier to get up in the morning.
We started out this weekend picking up our furniture from prison. One of the correction centers in Maine does furniture upholstering. Our living room couch and chairs are almost 20 years old. I have been trying to find new ones for a few years, but couldn't find anything I liked as well as what I have that we could afford.
Most people throw away instead of refurbish so there aren't a lot of upholstery shops left. My mom had mentioned that she thought the inmates in Windham did it so I looked it up online
and they did. It took me quite a while to find fabric, but I dropped them off 4 weeks ago. The results are just what we were hoping for. I had them do the chair with the reverse of the fabric for a little variation.
I was so happy with my new furniture it made me want to make the curtains I bought fabric for last year. One pair finished, three more to go.
I had a good stashbusting week. I backed my friend's quilt. All that's left is the buttonholes and buttons. I'm also counting my curtains as stashbusting. It's not quilting, but that fabric has been in my stash for a year.
Fabric in - not a thing
Fabric out - 5 1/2 yards
Last thing. I don't know about you guys, but November 4th can not get here soon enough for me. I am so tired of the "approved by" adds. The poll calls and the "vote for" signs everywhere. I'm going to do my part and vote, but I'm tempted not to because at this point they are all just annoying me.
