At Last!

I did it!
Yes I did!
The Queen of Procrastination!
Master of make do.
The lady with a 1000 unfinished projects!
I lit a fire under my butt last week and actually took this chair, that I started back March, from looking like this:
TaDa! This!
In all fairness to myself, while working on this chair, the staple gun died. I was unable to finish it. Also I had to return "Ricky's compressor"! Ooh. did that sound bitter? Because it tasted an awful lot like sour grapes to me! But that, my dear friends, is a completely different story.
Any who. One day last week, I loaded the chair in the back of my truck and hauled it my friend Pat's house. I used her compressor and staple gun to finish the remaining side and enlisted her help to sew my cushion. I was actually afraid to tackle that part by myself.
Am I patting myself on the back?
Yes I am!
For those of you who want to know, yes my mom was with me in spirit while worked on this chair. Yes, she is proud of me. But, she also said I didn't do it right. Hey, I told her, if she wanted perfection, she should have been here to do it for me!
Oh, there is still room for you to pat my back as well!
Hee hee hee

How awesome that you can check this big project off your mile long to-do list. That should leave you plenty of time to finish those "Sisters" scrapbooks before Christmas! Hurry, before we forget how many years have gone by since you first teased us with them :o)
