Obviously, I am much more efficient in crafting than in blogging. On the other hand, crafting is much easier than blogging for me, especially when there are some great motivations. It’s at least the case for this sofa cover. Before I started, I had a plan in my head to break up the project into modules in order to make the best out of one day. It works.
You may remember the fabrics I used for the curtains before new year, but I still used half of what I have. However, Mr. Y has been very negative about me making a sofa cover by myself. He said it was too time-consuming: I spent one day on the curtains so a sofa cover is gonna take forever. I don’t his logic. I also know he’ll blame me for getting unwanted fabrics someday in the future although it was not my decision to get them. The only thing I can do is not to argue but to make the sofa cover in a reasonable amount of time. Hence, I started (after 10 AM) on a Sunday morning on the cover. I finished the whole thing, from planning to the final hemming before 10PM and still managed prepare all the meals including the lunch boxes for Monday.
Now, the stupid fabrics dominates our living room, teasing me all the time. It may be great to prove myself but after all it’s extremely pathetic to have a husband who does not believe in me and never stand by my side.
