What to do today? Hmmm....

  Good morning everyone!  It's the beginning of another beautiful week, and I'm another week closer to school starting back.  Don't get me wrong, I love my job, but I don't have a whole bunch of time for projects during the school year like I do during the summer.  So the question I have for myself this morning is, "What am I going to work on this week?"  Or better yet, "What am I going to work on today?"  I have lots of projects I could be working on: some that I am almost finished with and some that I haven't even started yet.
  Recently, my husband and I (with MAJOR help from dad) closed in our screened in back porch.  This really needed to be done because for five years, I was washing clothes at my mom's house.  My house was probably built in the 50's and is definitely a "fixer-upper."  We had done a lot of work on it previously, but there was just nowhere to put a washer and dryer.  So five years later, I now have a washer and dryer in a nice, big, sunny room at the back of my house.  It's hard for me to leave a room undecorated, so I've been working on decorating it.
  I found some wicker chairs at my grandmother's house.  I liked the bones of them, but I didn't like the color.  So I spray painted them black.  It took a few coats, but I loved the end result.  I believe they look much more modern!  (You'll have to wait until the next post to see them!)  But...they would look that much fabulous with seat cushions.  So today, I am going to make seat cushions for my "new-to-me" wicker chairs.  I'm definitely not a seamstress, but I know a little bit about a needle and thread, and I have a sewing machine, which makes work so much easier.  I've watched my aunt make a cushion before, and I've seen it done on TV and the web.  So I'm going to try it!  I'll take pictures along the way and post a how-to later on.  It may be later on today if all goes well, or it may be tomorrow if I have trouble!  Wish me luck!
