How have you been? I've missed you!!! I'm in recovery mode from my cold... it's slow going but I'm gettin' there!
A couple of months ago I was visiting Honey at her shop (honey's home+style). I walked in and Honey said, "you have to come see my new couch".
Ohmygosh - I kid you not - when I sat down on her new couch I thought, "good grief - she's going to have to get a crane and a police officer to get me off of this!!!" Just imagine your rear-end on the most fluffy softest clouds... that was her new couch. A BEAUTIFUL creamy neutral color... down filled. But, it wouldn't fit in the single-wide along with my Grandmother's couch...
Sew... I went home, cut up a matelasse bedspread then tried to figure out how to get it stuffed with feathers. Thought about plucking some chickens.
Instead, I grabbed up a down-filled duvet, stitched two straight seams side-by-side down the middle and cut it apart. Voila'!
But... how do I keep it attached to my 1950's foam cushions?
NOT ONLY did Honey inspire my new cushions... but also one of my throw pillows:
She had another something in her shop with flat welting - and I loved it almost as much as the couch!!! Sew, of course, the biggest pillow has flat welting. Then, the longhorn pillow is made out of a piece of cut velvet that Jill had sent me (Thank You Jill!!!)... and - because I'm a girl (and a red.neck) one pillow is silver sequins.
Don't judge - a girl needs her bling.
Now you know (but don't tell anyone) that I have feathers duct taped to my couch cushions. I'm just cool like that. And 'cause Honey inspires me... I need to go visit her again.
Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide where if I had a DOUBLE-WIDE I could have Honey's new couch... hee-hee
P.S. I wrote about Honey here... have you been to see her yet? She'll let you sit on her new couch too!!!
