FRENCH EMBROIDERED LINEN

This fabric was ordered from and came all the way from France for these slipcovers. My client inherited the furniture from her parents and it was in desperate need of updating.
I also did the window seat cushion you can see to the left.
Rounded chairs, my favorite! Oh, that's right, not so much. Definitely needed buttons to get it on and off.
The sofa

Button-back, although they are strictly decorative to match the chairs. This client has since moved to France to live. I think this furniture was given to her sister who lives in the States.

What you can't see is while I was cutting these covers, Allison's kitten was 'helping' me. He was under the chair and/or sofa and when I least expected it, he'd pop out, pin me good and scurry back under the furniture. I left was lots of pin holes in my hands. At least with dogs, you can put them in another room. Cats, on the other hand, well, they aren't so easy to control.

Hi Tamerie, those are sooo beautiful, especially with the fabric coming from France! That is too cute the kittie kept popping out and surprising you! I love it when they do that... actually, I love kitties and anything they do... Bisous... Julie Marie

Beautiful job Tamerie. I see that you also covered the window seat...very nice!! I guess the kitty was there to keep you awake and on your toes!!

Lovely Tamerie
You certainly had your work cut out for you with the rounded shape chairs. How unusual, but I like them. And as for kitty...lucky she didn't get snipped! hehe.. x Julie

You make pretty things girlie! I can't wait to see you in less than 2 weeks!!!

Any chance Griselda can take a few boxes of art donations back to Coronado to give to Jane for her Art charity? I'm cleaning out my studio and I can't bear the thought of throwing it away. Tricia (Vintage Bliss) had the great idea to donate to Jane!
Let me know if you don't mind.
