I've begun the repair of a seat cushion that goes on the big reclining lounger. The leather is old, I didn't do anything to keep it in good shape, and when the puppy arrived she decided a small tear was an invitation to raid the stuffing. I put it up quickly and today dusted it off and started a rudimentary stitching to pull the gap together. I'll probably use a glue and fabric to reinforce this, then I'll make an upholstery cover to put over the entire seat cushion. I'll find something that looks good with the rest of the leather. I want to put this back into service for me.

This is the first of the things I need to do as far as moving around room contents from the sun room to the front room. This will go in the den and I don't want to move stuff in there that can't be used, hence the repair. It's so large that once it's out of the way I'll get started moving other large objects (trunks, but also a desk, a book case, and a Victrola) and empty the room for carpet cleaning.

I'm watching one of the old "Sell This House" programs on the little HD local stations with really cheap old programming - the homeowner has two of the heavy old CRT TVs in the house being renovated for sale, and Roger tells her "You only need one television." I hate to think of how many duplicate televisions and various players are around this house. The light weight and low cost has made a huge difference in how television viewing happens in this house.

Onto the chair. . .
