Last night we had our first crafting get together at Jana's. And we all had a blast. So since I left my stool there I thought I would show it to you today. I looked for a stool at garage sales, but didn't find anything, so I tried the thrift stores, and over in a corner was this pityful little stool. But I had high hopes for it. I could see this vision of purple. So this is what I bought.

So I brought it home and started to remove the top. And after about four layers of fabric and a million staples I got to this. I sanded and painted getting it ready for that purple top.

Then one day I found my fabric, cut me a pattern and started crazy quilting. Then I got to the best part, putting the embelishments on. I did the crazy quilting on the machine, but all the rest was done by hand. It was really fun and I will probably do another project very soon. I have something in mind and since I am going to Antique Alley next month I should get started on it.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my stool. We all had so much fun last night. Charlene & Lisa worked on souldering projects, JoAnne was doing crazy quilting, Carolyn was working on a Christmas house, Jana was doing some mosiac, and I was working on a wind chime. I forgot to take my camera, but Jana, Charlene and Lisa were all taking pictures so I'm sure you will see some of our work. We can't wait for next month and work on something halloween. Should be fun.
Thanks for stopping by.

You created something very pretty Pat. I really, really, like it. Thanks for sharing. I bet it inspires many others to make one.
