Loving It!

Yesterday I stopped by my local Hancock's Fabric store to see if there was anything on their Columbus Day Sale that I had to have. I bought a love seat at the thrift store a few months ago, and have been planning to recover it. Their decorator fabrics were 50% off, so I took a look there and was so tickled when I found this fabric - the colors are perfect for my living room - and the design looked just like a penny rug to me! (Or perhaps a cats paw rug hooking design)

This is the fabric I used when I recovered the couch several years ago - I think they'll look GREAT together! Can't wait to get started.

They will indeed look good together. REMEMBER to take lots of step by step pictures for us! lol
I'm inpressed that you can recover stuff!!!!! I have a love seat I bought at DI and it rocks. (ok, I think it does rock... but it is a rocking love seat...)I call it my grandma couch, It must have belonged to someone who never sat on it because it's very clean and in way good shape! Ugly, though. I need to recover it. :-) ♥

Oh, they are perfect together. I am in total envy--I've always wished I could recover something. Post some pictures when you have finished.

That is really neat fabric. I miss our fabric stores that carried more choices, love using specialty fabrics in art quilts.
