Recently, we posted on the Riggin blog, yes, hey, there’s a Riggin blog! Yes, we posted on the Riggin blog about my winter projects. While Jon gets to work with wood and metal, I get to work with food and fabric. Usually I vacillate between knitting and food, but this winter fabric has taken my fancy. And then I found a new love – an industrial machine. My goodness these things are handy!
A long time friend, who has been doing the canvas work for the Riggin since the beginning of our ownership has always offered that I use her machines to make hand bags or some other fun project. That’s not out of the question, but we had some things around the house that were needing some attention, so I approached her about her mentoring on something a little more complicated than bags. She’s a peach and was game.
The slipcovers for our house settee were the first project. I loved that so much, a slipcover for a chair upstairs was next. Then I sewed a couple of things for the boat before I got back to pillow covers. Hopefully, I will have time to do another slipcover for the office chair before the winter is out and the garden takes all of my attention.
Here’s a look at a few of the things I’ve been working on for the house.
