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.
