Oh, the excitement.

You know your life is exciting when the best thing you do all weekend is re-upholster a chair. It desparately needed doing though. When I lived with my parents my mother and I had done the chair in a light blue toile It looked nice in the old room but clashed pretty badly with the green in my apartment. And as if that weren't bad enough, the cat (pictured below) adopted the chair as his own and threw up on it a time or ten. So new fabric was pretty much a must.

Came out pretty decent, I think. I added some more batting to the seat, because you could kind of feel the springs before and it's much cushier looking now. The yellow pillow for the back and the little green pillow are my mother's doing as I can't sew much beyond reattaching buttons. I wield a mean staple gun though, and that's really the only skill I needed for this job.

In other news, Monday was my first day back to work and so far, so good. Now that I'm a full-time employee as opposed to just a temp I can actually arrange things to my liking which is a nice change.

My roommate and I are having people over to dinner this Friday and need to learn how to make pesto sauce. It looks pretty easy, but you never know.
