I wrote too fast + Staple gun love

>> Tuesday, June 9, 2009

Yesterday I said I'd been unlucky in the SMS and SEWN giveaways. Turned out that I was too quick to assume the giveaways were over. Ginger commented and emailed me to let me know I'd won an orange bag.

I'll be adding it to my reusable grocery bag stash. Thanks Ginger!

Lise emailed me to let me know she'd received her first fat quarter from the fat quarter swap. Check it out here.

In other news, I have a new love for staple guns.
I re-upholstered a somewhat ugly ottoman I found earlier in the spring. I forgot to take before pictures, but as soon as the lighting cooperates, I'll post the after pictures.

What kind of staple gun is that? Do you like it? Was it very expensive? I'm interested in learning upholstery and I soon will need to buy a good staple gun. Any advise would be helpful!

@danielle: I'd love to say impatience is becoming, but somehow I don't think it is. In any event, congrats on your win!

@hannahmades: I used an Arrow Fastener staple gun, model JT-21M. I borrowed it from a friend, so I don't know how much it cost. But it was very easy to use (it's manual, I don't know if an electronic one would be easier or better) and made a very satisfying staple "thwack" sound. Good luck with learning upholstery!
