From where, you ask?
Well, I'm not sure. I haven't actually been anywhere. Just busy. And I've been pulling myself away from the computer more and more. It just seems to eat away my time.....reading news, reading blogs, commenting on blogs, uploading and organizing pictures, looking up random facts because I'm curious about things, shopping....and so on.
If I used to comment on your blog, and you notice I haven't recently....that is why. Just a little break. I'll still read the blogs I've always read, but I'm just not taking so much time to comment.
Anyway, this picture is from a while ago, but I kept forgetting to post it. Last summer we bought a cheap little table and four chairs set to use on our patio. It was a nice little addition to our back porch. It started out with white-ish colored cushions. The only problem was that last summer our backyard was unfinished and covered in RED DIRT. Then it would rain and we would have RED MUD. Lots of fun for the boys, a little less for me. I mopped the kitchen floor almost daily. It was a little ridiculous!
Back to the point. By last winter (when it's REALLY nice to be eating outside around these parts!) I noticed that my "white-ish" colored chair pads were now mostly red and streaked with dirt. They weren't the kind you can just throw in the wash either. They were actually so bad that we were putting towels down before we sat down!
So I had a project! I made new chair pads. Those that know me know that I have very little faith in my sewing abilities, so this seemed like a monumental task for me! But it really wasn't so hard and didn't take long at all. I even chose a red colored fabric so that if the lovely red mud rears it's ugly head again, I'll be prepared! :)
