I have been in need of a rocking chair for my front room. The one I have been using has finally given up the ghost. I happen to need to go to the Goodwill Thrift Store the other day to look for a dresser for another room. While I was there, I took a look at the upholstered furniture, among it was this chair. It was the right size and color for my front room and it is a rocking chair, it needed some minor work and cleaning. I had looked at it earlier in the week when I was in the store but it was priced, $19.99. But yesterday was “Yellow Tag” day. That meant everything in the store with a yellow tag was half off the original price. So, this chair was now only $10.
I bought the chair and took care of the needed cleaning, vacuumed it and used upholstery cleaner and cleaned it. I trimmed all of the threads that had begun to pop out and I repaired the hem in the front and the side pocket had become all saggy and lose. So I opened up and inner seam and replaced the elastic and gave that pocket a face lift.
I was so excited about the chair and I also had the time, since I am down to just two low maintenance boys in the house for the summer. That I actually was able to finish this counted cross stitch pillow I started 3 years ago. The cross stitch panel has been finished for over two years waiting for me to have time from the teens to complete the pillow part. The ruffle on the pillow is also actually the same fabric as my drapes.
So, patience, patience and the things we need will usually pop up. Patience, patience, and the time will eventually present itself so we can complete a task.
