All finished!

It is a great feeling to finish a project, especially the ones that sat for a while. A lot of thank you's to Adrianne, who suggested I recover the bar stools in the first place. She also helped me find the Teflon coated fabric. Karine entertained my baby and kept me company while I took the original cover apart and cut out the new ones. I couldn't have done it without them.

So far, the Teflon has repelled melted chocolate, brownies, yogurt, and ball point pen. The stains came out with a soft rub of a wet dish towel. I might have to go buy some stocks of this company.

Scott just came home from a nine day trip to Europe. Family Home Evening and school lunches are the first ones to go among other things when he is away. This time I asked Asha to come up with something for Family Home Evening. She got busy and came up with this.

She got the lesson out of the Family Home Evening manual "because that is what Papa always uses", shared a story, and led a nice discussion. We had a fun evening, and I didn't have to do a thing. I was humbled and thankful for my wonderful kids.

I'm so envious that your husband makes the school lunches! BTW, the chairs look great! And, of course, Asha is like her mom--making everything she does look perfect!!

I love the FHE program. Chairs are adorable and look great in your kitchen. I hope Scott was in Europe on business. Tell him next time he goes he must take you.

I know what you mean- It is much easier to start projects than to finish! Good work!

That is so cute! I love her cover design and think it would make a pretty quilt.

Good Job Asha and great job finishing that stool project Marie!
