Saying goodbye to the old, ugly, green armchair.

I convinced the BG to let me throw away the old, ugly, green, hand-me-down, armchair from the living room.

It was a long, hard battle, the BG insisted that it move with us to this townhouse from our old house, which was about 1000 more square feet than we have now.   It has always been way too oversized for this place, plus it was OLD and UGLY!!!  But I finally won….Now it rests in the furniture graveyard, at last reunited with it’s sister the big, ugly, matching green couch.

I had to dig through my picture files to find a picture of it so you could wave goodbye. Here is the old ugly chair last summer.

So with that gone I was able to move my red cabinet/hutch thing over to the other wall and that allowed me to put my mantle where the red cabinet/hutch thing used to be!! Yeah furniture movement crisis solved!

So last night I started painting the mantle black, and will distress it a bit with sandpaper once it has had time to cure today.  My Dad is gonna cry, he built that out of Oak, and you know men they don’t like painting wood!!! I told him to use pine! LOL

I also stared working on a halloween quilt called In the Pumpkin Patch from the book Birds of a Feather by Blackbird Designs.

I have all the applique bits freezer papered and ironed on. I will work on the basting after I get the piecing done.
