The hunt for the unexpected


My daughter had an extra long piano lesson today and so my boys and I got to really take our time at the thrifts this afternoon.  I found some good weekly reader books and a great little ottoman covered in yellow/gold naugahyde.  Then I found this piece of upholstery fabric.

It is enough to recover the ottoman but I am not sure that I can bear to put this into harms way (of feet and such).
This was sewn and then hand trimmed it looks like.  Can you see how great it is?!
