Thank you Lynne @ Lily's Quilts and Abakhan for giving me the opportunity to recover something old and make it new. It delighted my mother! Which always makes me happy. I enjoyed the challenge.

The order came with enough fabric that even giving some away, I will have plenty to complete Mom's pillow cover and back rest for her rocker.

  14. I have recovered or reupholstered my dining room chairs twice before. Most recently was last February when Joann was having a half-off sale on upholstery fabric. I noticed that you didn't put fresh batting and cushion to the foot stool. I had to remove old fabric, batting and cushion on my chairs just once because they were so old and flat already. I then took the base of the chair to the upholstery shop so they could cut the cushion to the size of the seat base. My dining room chairs are so comfy to sit on now that there's a brand new cushion and batting on it. What I would like to recover next is my sewing chair. Thank you for the chance to win.
