Stitching Chair/Corner

My DH insisted on buying me a LaZBoy recliner today, in the hopes that it would be comfortable for me to sit and relax in, as well as to stitch in. I went with him to the furniture store and picked one out. It is positively wonderful! As soon as I sat in it, my entire body just relaxed completely and I did not want to get out of the chair LOL So we bought it.

It is now set up in my living room, with a music stand to hold my chart. I chose a music stand because it is sturdy enough to hold a chart that is part of a hard cover book, whereas I was worried that the light wood stitching frames with chart holders would not be able to hold a hard cover book.

We moved my desktop day light lamp so that it sits to the left of my new chair. I spent somewhere around 4 hours today stitching in that chair while watching a movie and I did NOT hurt from it. I actually hurt less! I was absolutely wonderful! So I now have a stitching corner and I am so excited!!

Sadly my digital camera's only memory card has died. Took it long enough! So tomorrow I will have to buy a new digital camera, or a new card for the one I have. Considering how old my camera is (8 years), it is probably time for a new camera, one with more meapixels to make my pictures have more detail. So I will be hitting the store tomorrow on the great hunt for a camera!

I finished the first and second rows (closest to center) of Blackwork Winter by Tam's Creations, so all I have left is the outermost row that has snowflakes and poinsettias and swiss cake yule lgs as well. I am getting so exited because I am so close to finishing. Because my camera is messed up I can't get a picture. Hopefully tomorrow I will get a new camera and get some pictures up for you guys!

Thanks , enjoy!


  1. Let me tell you - that Lazy Boy totally lives up to its name!! I've had one for about 20 years that has been reupholstered three times (costs as much as a new one or more). I even bought a new chair and ended up giving IT to my son to get this one back. LOVE it. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine.

  2. I have a lovely La-Z-Boy in my bedroom that should be my stitchy chair in the living room, but I just can't seem to give up/get rid of the 17-year old overstuffed Happy Chair. Considering I can barely walk when I get out of the darn thing, I suppose I should be a grown up and start movin' some furniture around. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Charlene, I agree! This chair is just marvelous!

    Coni, I am very glad to have been inspiration for you. I hope you enjoy stitching in your La-Z-Boy as much as I am enjoying stitching in mine!

    Thank you both for your comments, I appreciate them.

  4. The finished snowman project is pretty! I am glad about the chair. Enjoy it!
