A Fresh New Look

A while back we bought these chairs second hand. As much as they were a much needed addition to our dining room, white was never going to work in a house with three kids. So I started hunting for some fabric and found this fun design at a local sewing fair.

I've had a go once before at adding new fabric to a chair and it's a pretty straightforward process (even with a baby pulling at your fabric from below!) A quick unscrewing of the seat, cutting out a fabric square, stapling it on, trimming the fabric, and screwing the seats back on was all it took. The corners are always a little bit fiddly and I guess this gets easier the more you do it.

I'm really pleased with the results! I've got a couple of other chairs that also need new fabric. Slightly different projects as one needs new cushion covers and the the other needs fabric on cushions and the actual chair base. Any excuse for a bit of fabric shopping!


How Are You?

Hello. How are we all? I'm not going to lie. It's been pretty easy to shut out the outside world from our little corner of the world. The kids and I haven't left the house since last Saturday, a week ago. Andrew has been out a couple of times for supplies but otherwise we've been here, pottering about, keeping the kids occupied and getting jobs done. I'm am more than aware that we are in a very fortunate position having the space that we do for the kids to run free. We can wander around our land without the fear of bumping into anyone. But still... these are worrying times.

If I amuse myself with the hear and now, our day to day living, I'm OK. If I watch too much news, or spend too much time on Facebook, or start thinking about the future, the worries start to spiral out of control. These worries are not just about our lives, but also for those of friends and family, of all the local businesses, the kids missing out on time with their friends...

There's a lot to think about over the next few weeks and months. There's no doubt that change is in the air and I'm optimistic that these changes will be for the greater good. I feel compelled to get back onto this space more regularly, posting stories about what we're getting up to to keep ourselves positive.

We truly hope that wherever you are in the world you are safe and well. Do get in touch and let us know how you're coping and what you're getting up to. We'd love to hear from you!
