Five Inches of New Snow for MARCH....

Cold wintery weather inspires me.  Yeah, I am so inspired I  just lay down on the couch and zzzzzzzzz the whole winter away. But somewhere along the way, I remembered that last summer I promised myself I would clean closets this winter (when I couldn't garden...) and finish covering this chair.  SOOOO, rather than open the closet doors in this place I opted to get busy on this chair.
I have been buying clearance napkins and yardage for a few years now and then started the piecing last winter.
I really do love recovering furniture.  It is a puzzle that you take apart and then put back together.
Debra and Dad had done the previous cover for me and I loved it in my blue and yellow bedroom, but we moved and it aged.  But as I was pulling it apart, I couldn't help but remember how I sat in the night and nursed my last baby.  Good memories.
BUT onto the puzzle.

I was really hoping to rip it apart and find a gold piece or 100 dollar bill inside...but no...just lint, and dirt.

 Here is makings of my backache......and see that scrap of yellow and blue on the floor...that is the BEFORE fabric.
I really did have a great time piecing the fabric for this chair.  and I love the fact that it is done.  Now onto the closets.  BLEHHHHH.
