i have been looking for different ways to spice up the room because of the plentiful bare walls that it has located in it. the last person had enough to make the room look lived in while (in an effort to reduce what i had) did not have even enough to cover one wall. there have been several ideas pitched and i am working on one currently to make an entire wall a huge mosaic of different pictures that i have taken but never printed. i am also trying to find the cheapest (and the ugliest) frames that i can to add some life to the boring white walls that currently enclose me at night.

but this brings me to my next point. for months there has been a car sitting in the field outside of our house. after one roommates suggestion we all decided to see what hidden treasures we could find within it. we opened it and found that there was not a whole lot in it and deterred from taking too much out. but we did find some sweet fabric. i then had the idea "well if nobody is going to be using this car it has seats and i can take one out to have a chair in my room." well it did not take long for that chair to be out, and realizing what a great thing it was the drivers seat was then removed too. they were a little dirty so we thought to ourselves "let us get some seat covers for it." the idea turned into me (and others) thinking that instead of buying seat covers i could sew a couple of seat covers to cover them and also to use the fabric that was just sitting there not being used. after a few hours i had a pattern and then got to cutting and sewing. the end result:
and who thought that the hfl department does not have practical classes?
