i'm making new pillow covers for the sunroom in anticipation of the day we get a new GREY sofa. you know, in five or six years, whenever we're done paying off windows...
our BROWN leather sofa sits right in the middle of the room.
on our TAN area rug.
you're right, i should have planned colors around the couch and rug we currently have instead of basing it on some dream sofa that we won't be able to afford until 2025.
...and i probably should have anticipated not being able to buy an exquisite orangey-red oriental rug until we had taken care of more important things ((like windows!)).
the lesson has been learned.
but i'm still plunging ahead with my pillow-making because i LOVE all the fabrics i ordered! i've bought the black and white ikat before -- i loved it so much, i ordered some more. i made a tank top last time and decided it would make a cute pillow as well.
