A better day.

It was a better day today. My head felt much better. So much so that this afternoon I made a footstool cover.

    
new footstool cover        



I bought these footstools from Ikea in Adelaide some years ago now. They were flatpacks from "As Is". A discontinued item and there were no covers for them so they were very cheap. It took years for us to get them out of the boxes and quite some time for me to make these covers! You can see an uncovered footstool to the left in the photo. The second cover is almost finished too. They are great footstools, with storage under the cushion. I keep the spare covers from my Ikea Ecktorp sofas in them. (Gotta love a sofa with washable covers. Especially at my house!) I also did some secret sewing too. (Shhhhh!)

Glad you're feeling better. The stripe cover is looking good! Great idea!

Very nice, I always check out the "As Is" section, quite surprising what you can find in there.

Glad you feel up to sewing again! LOve the fabric for the covers, the covers look great too. Those footstools sound like something I could use for keeping my stitching downstairs...

It's good to know that you are feeling better. I really like that Fabric, it's great .... perfect for footstool covers. Bet you can't guess where Ashlee and I are going today or tomorrow ?????? IKEA !! WOOHOO. I need a bookshelf and some storage stuff.

I love that fabric for the footstool. There is nothing like a bargain at Ikea. I always check out the "as is " section.

Glad that headache has gone. Those things leave you feeling low and totally washed out don't they?

Glad your feeling better. I am in the process of covering a lounge for Gemma. Not my most favourite job. I like your fabric.

Those footstools are great too bad they are discontinued I'd be down there like a flash.

Glad the headache is better those lingering ones are the pits. I can pinpoint my triggers now so I can usually get on top of them in a day or so (mine are usually sinus related now and occasionally my neck). Remember lots of water.
