Midnight Madness

Turns out I am my mothers daughter … funny that.  I always remember as a kid my mum being up in what seemed like the middle of the night working away at her sewing machine.  As it turns it out it actually was the middle of the night not just my childhood imagination.
I am a night owl, there is no two ways about it, always have been and probably always will be.  It is hard to explain the feeling of wanting to ‘hit the sack’ (as my dad would say) at 8pm, but then suddenly finding a flurry of energy when the carriage threatens to turn to a pumpkin … but thats me.
So last night at 12:30am I decided I would re-cover a foot stool … ok so it certainly wasn’t as complicated as it sounds, quite a simple task really but none-the-less quite productive for such a late or early hour.  I found this retro footstool several years ago at an op-shop, it was crying out to be de-robed of its dirty white fur coat and dressed in something pretty. Over the years I have had all sorts of fabrics draped over this simple stool whilst trying to decide what I would dress it in.  As it turns out I had some retro chairs re-covered last year in this ikea fabric and so the solution now was easy, a matching stool.
I wonder what I will make tonight …?
