    Hey - I use a piano stool just like that one! They are awesome for sewing and really help reduce leg pain on those long FMQ sessions. Tell hubby to take orders for his handwork!
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    What a loving and talented husband you have. The seat cover is an original.

    adamae, no, he does the old hooking using linen and a tool that much resembles a crochet hook and a gripper frame stand. His hobby makes my quilting/sewing look cheap. Wool is ridiculously expensive. He has made some pretty awesome rugs, stair treads and other projects.

    Bonus ** he makes the best foccacia I've had anywhere :-)

    best,

    What a treasure you have there. The piano stool cover is great.

    I bought the book "The Happy Hooker" for rug hooking but haven't tried it yet
