In progress..

As I type this, my husband and 2 out of my 3 children are playing 'Just Dance' for the Wii. The very first song we did was Cotton Eyed Joe.. just me and the hubby. I was dying laughing. Apparently my dear hubs is not the greatest dancer. Then again, I haven't seen myself do it.

The other day I saw this blog post by This & That and decided that I HAD to cover Keaghan's ugly Dora chair.

I mean really. My 6 year old chickie is so not into Dora anymore. Hasn't been for about 3 years! But I didn't want to just throw it away. I was *so* excited when I got the idea to cover it. I had a couple of ideas based on the fabric that I had acquired..

I decided to do the second one, only because I didn't have enough of that gorgeous brown fabric to cover the entire thing. Since I have an embroidery machine I had to personalize the chair with a cute little K..

So this is where I'm at now.. I'm having trouble lining it up where I want.. so I'm going to have to wait until a Crafty time with friends so I can get some help. Otherwise I'll never finish it. I'm quite impressed with how far I got, since this is the first time doing anything even close to this!

There it is, my latest project. It's really nice doing something that I'm *not* getting paid for and can just do at my leisure. Wait.. is THIS a hobby?! Well.. will ya look at that. ;)
