New toy for Momma

Merry Christmas to ME!!! I used my Christmas money to upgrade my sewing machine this weekend. My first project: Our sad chair. We bought this chair right after we got married when we were living in Bay City, TX, and got it for twenty bucks. Having no children or foresight at the time, I made white cushion covers for it with black piping. I was pretty proud of my handiwork at the time, but after three moves, three Thanksgiving dinners with lots of red wine, and one lovable little boy, our chair was in seriously sad shape. So this weekend I bought thicker foam for the cushions and used some practical, beige fabric for the chair, and now it looks like this:instead of this:
Hooray for upgrades!
