Today was a good day, which was a bit surprising given the night I had. One of our old dogs barked on and off all night. I put him out, let him back in, crated him, let him into the house none of it seemed to help. Well, letting him into the house seemed to help, but I didn’t get to sleep until 4:00 am. I was very thankful that I was able to sleep in until nearly 9:30. Sully and I laid around in bed until 10:30 or so. We had a great brunch around 11:30, leftovers from brunch with Gramma on Saturday morning.
We spent the day watching movies and I worked on measurements for the couch cushions. I needed to add everything up so I can figure out how much fabric I will need. I had my graph paper workbook, a pencil, pencil sharpener and a ruler to work it all out. I decided to use the bottom cushions we are using now as the new back cushions. The pillows we have now along the back are super squishy. I can use those pillows at the sides where the end tables are and in the corner. So, all in all, I figured out I needed ten yards of fabric.
Joann’s had denim on sale for 50% off and the sale ended today. Boo and I stopped at Joann’s on the way home from Boo’s dance class. I found some great black denim that was 60 inches wide. The only problem is that the bolt only held 8 yards. I had to find a second bolt and hope that there was at least ten yards between the two bolts. The first bolt had 7 yards and 30 inches, I got the 30 inches for 50% off the sale price. Yay! The second bolt had three yards and 13 inches, with the 13 inches also 50% off the sale price.
I’ve got my cushion fabric plus a little extra to cover the squishy pillows. I also saw that they had colored denim so I might go back and grab some of that if I need it for the squishy pillows. I have a few more things to figure out before I start sewing but I am glad I have gotten this far.
It was a lazy day but I actually got something done. Yay me!
