I have had this material for a couple years OK 4 years and have had a piece draped across an ottoman I picked up at a yard sale and had always wanted it covered to match my settee. So my friend who lives in a town not many miles away volunteered to come over and upholstery my ottoman for me. I was thrilled because we had talked about doing this for 2 years however just never could get the time together . So she came over with the electric staple gun and got it done for me.
The red won because I thought it brought out the other red in the toile material
JO worked all day on this I was her assistant I ironed and did the sewing after I got a machine working . I have 3 sewing machines and brought my little 1948 Singer featherweight up to the kitchen however the bobbin kept knotting up. So I used my craft machine to sew with.
This is one of the pillows. I have materail to make more
I know this materail has been around a few years but I love it so much just like my Waverly countryside blue & white toile I have in my bedroom which has been around a few years also. I don't think toile ever goes out of style just like anything french
finished by JO. I relly like the large pleats
We started this about 10am and finished in time to attend a ladies night out at McAdmas LTd a gift and antique shop here in town. I had recieved an invitation and thought she would enjoy it. They had fine wine of choice and hors D'oeuvres also if you found a loose diamond (cz's) laying around you won a gift certificate according to the size of the stone found. I found a stone and turned it in for a $20.00 certificate and Jo and I looked and looked to find her one. Several had been found and was getting worried they were all taken, I suddenly turned up a beautiful glass in the crystal area of the store and there was another stone for Jo . I had her turn it in and she recieved a $20.00 gift certificate also. We looked around the store for some time dreaming of what we could use our small certificate towards. we did find a $69.00 dollar item she liked and also a $19,00.00 dollar blue aqua marine stone necklace, so we put them on her Wish List that will be turned over to her husband for Gentlemen's night HA . Her husband will die when he see's her list LOL Oh well it was much fun however her husband does a great job on buying specail gifts for her so I shouldn't say he will die , he may just get it for her . One time when I worked at a fine jewelry store I showed him a beautiful diamond ring she liked and she wears it now.
