Happy part 3: DONE!

I finished the couch cover today!! I would like a huge pat on the back please because it only took me about 7 years to finish all of them! I was so over this project years ago and when I brought the stuff out again the other day to finally finish it, I rushed it and made mistakes. And then was so happy it was done I didn't iron or straighten; just put it on and took bad photos. I'm just so excited it's done!!!!
I didn't get the excitement I was hoping for from a certain someone whose name sounds like John but is not spelled like that:)  I made fitted couch covers with a zipper and piping and flaps, etc. I deserve more than a "that's great". Right??? Here is the 1st one I covered (over stuffed-chair) and here is the 2nd one.
So now I need to make new pillow covers..hmm.. so many ideas..
Someone has no front teeth. My friend Connie found this really cool park/lake/playground/everything place about 15 minutes from our house. We didn't come prepared so the girls went in the lake in only their shorts. Scandalous!

Yay!!! Was it the last cover where I gave you the holy-mother of comment? This is just another reason why I look up to you as my sewing idol! :)

Woah, I can't even imagine sewing couch covers like that - you rock! I really love the swimming photos, too - what cuties.

Wow, well done you! You never cease to amaze me!!! I don't know how you do it! The couch looks great. Can't wait to see what you come up with for pillows.

The girls are getting so big! We miss you all. Sienna is turning 5 tomorrow and having a pottery painting party with her school friends! We'll miss you!
