My new sofa, sitting on my big sofa, in front of one of the microsuede throw pillows that started my color scheme. (I used to have two of those throw pillows, one became the sofa.) The cat throw pillows were made by Brae. The small boom box is my husband's. I bought it for him (it's really an iPod speaker) because he collects boomboxes, thinking he'd say "awww, it's cute", then hand it back to me after a few days. He won't let me have it. Now I have to buy myself one.
The sofa's not perfect, but when I get something made of fabric to a 'good enough' state I'm thrilled. Fabric and I don't tend to get along. I constructed the sofa based on a tutorial written by Pepper. Part one, building, is here....part two, upholstering, is here.
I ended up making it a bit deeper than I planned on, but it would have looked funny with my original measurements. I definitely don't have space for a coffee table in this room.
We had a wee little chipmunk visit us yesterday. He's old enough to have left the burrow, but too young to be scared of people yet....definitely from this year's litter. He was sleeping on the warm pavers behind the garage.
Stretch! Awww.....so cute.....
Hi there, little guy....
Would you like some sunflower seeds?
Look at those big feet! Just like a puppy...he'll grow into them.
We must have sat there for an hour while he stuffed his cheeks full, before he staggered away, off balance. So sweet. He'd look cute relaxing on my sofa, no?
