We just got home from an adventurous trip to the NE. We saw road signs to Knoxville, Bristol, Abingdon, Blacksburg, Richmond, Winchester, Martinsburg, Hershey, Wilkes-Barre, Port Jervis, New York City, Newburgh, etc.....
While on our trip we saw.....
two of our daughters, their husbands, and four of our five grand children,
a Princess and the Pea birthday cake that my daughter made,
snakes, frogs, animals from all over the world,
apples to pick,
and I recovered this couch for my daughter.
It really doesn't look quite this wrinkly in person. Actually, after seeing these photos I adjusted the fabric on the cushions again. I should have taken new picts, but I didn't. I was having too much fun with my grands. I took their Halloween costumes and other little outfits to them. They seemed to like them all.
It wasn't easy to find the fabric for this couch, because we needed so much yardage, but we found an awesome store where all the fabrics are factory overruns, or seconds, or whatever. The fabrics were high quality, but inexpensive!!!! Yea!!!! It looks a little shinier in these photos than it really is. It's very soft and kid friendly. It also, all comes off for a spin in the washing machine. There are zippers in the cushion coverings and the rest, even though a tight fit, will slip off. I stuffed the back cushions so they would be fuller, and I covered the bottom cushions with batting to give a little more shape. This took two days, with half of the first day looking for the fabric. I've never done anything quite like this before so I really didn't know what I was doing or how it would turn out. My grand daughter said that it looked like a rich person's couch. That's the best critique I could ever expect!
