Pink Saturday 11/13/2010 Office Chair Cover

Happy Pink Saturday. Please visit other participants at Beverly's Blog.


I had x-rays done and all is normal but continue the physical therapy. The therapist has given me more exercises and variations on some of the old ones. My advice? Avoid doing a 180° flip at all costs, chicks! You would laugh if you could see how I have to sit in a restaurant booth. (I prefer tables and chairs but at the moment I need the cushioning of the booth seats. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, stops my monday and friday nights eating out. Even if I do have to sit kinda weird.

Several weeks ago I came to the realization that I could not sit in my office chair without pain so I switched with hubs and he took my chair. His is much more comfortable for me and comfort is a necessity at this point. However, he doesn't want to have a roses chair cover on his chair and it won't fit what is now my chair. But when I looked at it, there was an "unraveling" of some fibers on one side. I thought of selling it and repaired the tear. I then washed it. I then put it on a chair in the studio to dry it. I like it! I think I'll just keep it on that chair—after I iron it. The thought of selling it distressed me because I love it but I was willing to pass it on to someone for a nominal charge with the knowledge that it was repaired. If I change my mind, I'll let someone who loves office chair covers with roses fabric on it know. I'd like to see it go to a good home!

Just a fancy stitch to repair the tear. VoilĂ , looks like new.


  1. You definitely love roses!
    Have a wonderful pink saturday!
    Hugs, Ann

  2. I hope you feel better soon!

    I love the fabric on your chair. I also fell in love with your little desk. I had not seen that before. It's adorable!

    happy Pink Saturday!
    Deanna :D

  3. Happy Pink Saturday Connie, Great repair on the chair cover. Have a wonderful week.

  4. Happy Pink Saturday Connie Sweetie...
    I am so thrilled to see this morning. So you have to sit a little funny. I can't talk, so together we are complete person. Yea..... I love it sweetie.

    This cover is so darling. You and that sewing machine. I bet you have missed not being able to do all the things that you love. Hang in there sweet friend. Please know that I am storming the heavens with prayer for you to get better soon. It is no fun to be down, I know better than anyone about that, not feeling good.

    I am tickled pink that you still went out to dinner. It is good for you to keep giving it a chance anyways. In time. Keep doing your exercises and do what they tell you. And please sweetie, can you stop doing gymnastics? We have reached a point in our lives where we have to give some things up, this being one of them. Leave it to the grands okay? Love ya girl.

    Please get well soon. I really miss you. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

    P.S. Have a beautiful Pink Saturday. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    Happy Pink Saturday~~I just posted mine.soooo late, but it still is Saturday;)


  10. Oh I love that slip Connie! What beautiful fabric!

    I was so sorry to read about your injury and the pain of it. I hope it starts to heal up or at least feel better soon. I know that it takes a long time to heal these things. I have been dealing with a pulled neck muscle for most of the Summer amd it gives new meaning to 'pain in the neck'!LOL!
    It finally turned cold here too.
    hugs to you.

  11. Very cute chair cover, can't understand WHY your hubby doesn't like it??? lol Blessings, Debbie p.s. If you haven't been by yet I have posted the final package for my giveaway!

  12. Hi Connie just catching up on your blog after being away from blogland for a while.
    Hope you are soon feeling a lot better
    Love your chair cover - repair and all

  13. Connie, some how I lost track of you! I did not know you were still in pain from your summer fall! You've just got to start getting better instead of worse, man there is nothing worse than trying to live with pain! I was looking at all of that luscious fabric! Man it makes my heart go pitter patter!


  14. I'm visiting you for the first time from Martha's favorites. You have an adorable blog and I've had fun visiting with you.
    I'm sorry to hear about your accident and painful injuries. I hope you heal quickly.
    Love how you repaired your chair cover; your office chair and desk are beautiful. I love vintage and roses and I thank you for sharing both.
    See you on the blog.

  15. Looks really cute!
    So beautiful fabric Connie!


  16. Hi Connie! I am so so behind in my blog reading. Sometimes life just gets in the way. I am sorry to hear that you are still in pain. I wonder if one of those donuts you sit on would help. You could always cover it in some of your charming girlie pink fabric! And I also want to say that your office chair is absolutely smashing! Love, love, love it!! I'm sending lots and lots of healing thoughts your way!!

    Lots of love,
    Susan and Bentley
