One of my lovely old friends (she's not old, just been a friend for a long time now!!!) gave me bags of fabric samples recently. I was sitting in the office, trying to tidy up and look for aida cloth at the same time, when I had a brainwave - completely unrelated to the task at hand! Why couldn't I try patching together the fabric samples to cover my new chairs? It's a bit of a risk - I may sew everything together and decide it looks terrible, that it's been a complete waste of time... or it might just look fantastic! Anyway, I'm going to have fun trying - it's been ages since I sunk my teeth into a sewing project. Stay tuned to see how it goes!
