A Sunday finish.....

Do you remember this post? When the three of us decided to do these little projects, I thought of something I wanted to make the grandkids. They are 7,6,6 and 3. Now is the perfect time for a checkerboard and when grandma sews they get one made of fabric. And when grandma thinks ahead, they get one with built in storage.




Now to make two (or three) more.

Yesterday was fun... My sister called and asked me to go furniture shopping with her. She has been looking for new living room furniture and one of the local stores had a fabulous two hour sale. After sitting on EVERY chair there was, she settled on a great cream set (she has no young children or pets so she can pick cream with confidence) and she picks it up next week. I tried to steer her to the exact same set in dark red with no luck... she just isn't a red person.
So then she took me to lunch....we really like the soup and salad at Olive Garden...
Thanks Sis, I had a great time!!

How GREAT to put that zippered compartment to hold the checkers! That is a fun gift! I, too, love the soup and salad and breadsticks at Olive Garden.

Adorable!!! Now I'll need to make one. Very clever with the storage pouch in there.

Thanks for sitting in all those chairs! I'm excited to get my new comfy chair and ottoman - it will be great for reading the next book and of course the sofa to match! And my current furniture found a great home!!

LOVE the checkers set and I'm sure the grandkids will too!
