Pretty and Comfy!

So sorry everyone, I promised to share this project with you yesterday and I got so caught up in my roadtrip for work that I forgot to hit the publish button!

I've been travelling for work a lot lately, but this week took me some place I've never been before.....north....the FAR north.


See that big arrow right smack dab in the middle of Canada?  Well, that's where I was all day yesterday.  Almost as far north in Saskatchewan, Canada as you can get (but not quite).


It's a lovely place, everyone was super friendly, and it was surprisingly quite warm out!  All in all an exhausting but great trip.

Anyway, onto more crafty things....

I'm going to show you something very embarrassing....this is the chair that I sit on at my computer, where I spend so much of my spare time sharing all of my creative projects with you guys.


I've had this chair for about 15 years.  I finally gave away the cheapy desk it came with about 5 years ago.  I have a hard time letting go of stuff that still works.  And for all intents and purposes, this chair still works....it's just not comfortable, at all~

So, remember the fabric I showed you on Monday that Wholeport sent me?


 Well, here's what I did with the beautiful floral piece:


Look at all that padding!  I added a piece of foam and a couple layers of quilt batting to the seat before I covered it.


I remade the back, making it longer and tighter


And now, here's where I sit when I'm talking to all of you...


So much prettier!
