Everything is Peachy!

We had a quiet Memorial Day weekend, since Bill is still recovering from his appendectomy.
But I used the time to do some sewing, and that was very rewarding.
I found some great fabric at Joann's and used it to brighten up my porch.

First, I brought my grandfather's rocking chair up from the garage, scrubbed it and polished it,
and made cushion covers with the new fabric.
I can still see my grandpa sitting on this chair, puffing away on a cigar and watching a baseball game on TV. Now it will be a great place to sit and read or work on my computer as I'm doing right now!

Next I made a new tablecloth for the table we use for meals in the summer.
I really love this little porch and it was fun to dress it up a bit.

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

Very pretty and very feminine. I just love the idea of having a sun porch like that. Enjoy it for me too please:)
