Well put Shirley! I do agree, especially about relaxing! (Sure you don't want the kids for a visit? A few months or so? :)
One reason I love to do slipcovers is (for me) there is a certain amount of freedom and playfulness. However, I feel my sewing skills could use improvement. Why should I try to reinvent the wheel when I know that there are those of you who know all the tricks and could simply show me! :)
I just got a drop of sewing machine oil on a cotton duck cover darn it!! Before I go messing with it, does anyone know a product to get it out?
