The Chair Is DONE!!!!

OMG! I can't believe it. I finally finished the darn slipcover for the chair.  That's how I had started thinking about it, in bold letters. Dreading it, every time I went past the darn thing. Is it good? Not really. It is serviceable. It wound up being a project that tested my patience and my sewing sense, since the directions that I had were for a very straight sided chair. My chair is not that way. . . it is plump and rounded and comfy. The slipcover had to overcome all of that and therefore couldn't be slick and straight as I wanted it to be, so instead it has gathers. Not my first choice. Oh well. My cats, however, love it. It is definitely cat friendly fabric. Of course they wouldn't sit still for the picture. Can't have everything.
Now that this is done I can move on to quilty  things!
I've almost finished the Halloween quilt. I've got company coming in, so I don't think I'll get it quilted in time for the Oct. 30, but I might get the all the top done. I just need to get the bat border done and the top will be finished.
Sorry the image is a bit blurry, but I think you can see most of it. The bats will join the stars you can see just in the corners. After the quilting is done little buttons and trinkets will be added. Fun.
I so love seeing what will happen when all these fabrics come together.
