      I am pretty amazed myself that it is so easy to restyle a chair. In previous jobs, I’ve ADDED skirts. Time to try something different on this one. I like it a lot better too.

    Just LOVE it when you re-upholster furniture; it is so cool! I think it’s because you rescue things and make them look sooo good, and up-to-date!
    Have just finished cutting up all the ” leftovers ” (that will be the quilt name) from the 7 shirts quilt, to make a lap quilt! I don’t know why I find that satisfying, but I do, so “go with it”! It’s not like I don’t have other fabric to cut. But know from your projects you feel the same!
    Great job on the chair!

    You are my best cheerleader! Yes, rescuing tired, old, beat up stuff is one of my passions. Congratulations on your “leftovers.” It becomes an obsession, yes?
