Extra Seating...Finally!

Finally! I started this little project a l-o-n-g time ago. I remember hoping to get it finished before a friend stayed with us for college spring break...this past spring?? This is the hearth for our fireplace. When you have ten in your family and visitors often, you look for any extra seating you can get. This fabric is a thick, upholstery fabric. It was much more difficult to sew than I would have imagined, but it is finished.

I am the proud new owner of a new camera as well, so I hope to get back to blogging more frequently soon.

Drop me a line if you're still reading this!


PS: We do NOT have fires in the fireplace...it's just too warm here most of the time. If we do want a fire, the cushion can easily be removed, however. I love the rich yet warm red color. I looked at a lot of fabrics before I picked that one.

Looking good! I take it you never have a fire in the fireplace. :)

I am still reading the blog and enjoy it! I never have time for all the sewing I would love to do and must stop adding fabric until I do. I really like the bench cushion, it is lovely. We are too warm in So Cal for fires most of the times too.
