In the Winter she would knit and crochet to keep warm
She was well known for her upcycled children's sweater
Whenever Janet found herself in fear of something, she would face that fear and conquor it
Remember her fear of zippers??
A thing of the past.
Janet was a pretty happy lady until she saw this..
Janet stumbled onto a photo of a lovely slipcovered chair and she was intriqued.
It was a thing of wonder and beauty...she needed to find out more about this creature.
She set out in search of more evidence that these wonderous beauties were out there in the vast Blogosphere, breeding and thriving.
Who or what was giving these objects life?
Then one day, while on a discovery mission, she spotted a few blogs with evidence of linen and drop cloth
She knew that if she found even the smallest samples of painters drop cloths, that meant the blog could support slipcover life.
She was onto something BIG!
First she discovered a distant blog ruled by the Empress Miss Mustard Seed. Then she landed on another blog where Queen Shelley ruled over an army of slipcovers!
These discoveries led her to the Kingdom of Pink & Polka Dot, where every Friday, Janet was treated to a parade of slipcovers.
Janet was determined to create one of these fabulous furniture beautifiers herself.
How on earth would she ever accomplish this...she knew nothing about slipcovers or piping and pleated skirts.
Janet did not ponder this dilema for long, because she was to discover that these Queens of slipcovers where a very friendly species. They had no plans to take over her blog and enslave her...but only to teach and nurture Janet in the mastering of this art form. To prove it, they offered valuable advice in the form of DVD's, online tutorials and slipcover seminars.
Armed with a plethora (don't you just love that word?) of instructional help, Janet decided to create her own slipcover
Janet had purchased this comfy club chair at a thrift shop a few years back. It's simple and clean lines were perfect.
So the pinning and tucking began
and draped and pinned some more...and after rewinding her DVD and online tutorials many, many times
she was doing it!!!!!
Janet was breeding her own little family of slipcovers.
When finally one bright sunny day...she stood back and smiled
She had created her own and very first slipcover..
Isn't she lovely!
she searched the blogoshere...she honored the wise ones methods and she
