Old couch, new couch

I guess you have seen on the news all the rain the Houston area has had. Fortunately here in out little corner we have only had 4 inches but there is still rain in the forecast, though it shouldn't be anything like the past few days. We had a little ponding along the fence line but that's it (thankfully!)

 Old couch - should have plumped the cushions - a certain little doxie likes to climb up on the back and hang out.

 Okay - it's really not a new couch - just a new slipcover  (once again, I should have plumped the cushions - I think humans have been sitting here).
Took oldest kidlet to Ikea a couple of weeks ago (he wanted to buy a desk and it wouldn't fit in his car) and decided I would lighten up my living room for spring/summer with a new slipcover. The dark pillows didn't work so I have them stashed away to use when I swap covers again. And yes, I cropped the photos to not show the parts of the living room that has stacks of stuff to put away.. 

I went on a fob making frenzy the week before the getaway and made one for each of the ladies that attended. They are so much fun to make. When I drag the beads out I can never make just one! 

I'm feeling the need for some furniture painting - it has been way too long. Maybe next week - have the project and the paint, just need to make room in the garage to spread out.

I did get a little stitching in on the days that it rained - I'll show those pictures soon. 

And it just started raining again. At least I don't have to get out for anything today!

Tina, your fobs looks fabulous! What are the loops made from (the fobs without the lobster claws)? I think the new slipcover is a room brightener. I look forward to seeing what you are going to paint. Stay safe with all that rain!

Fantastic fobs! You should sell them on etsy!
