    Ha! I thought you were going to tell us you took all those samples, pieced them together and did your own recover job on that settee. Patchwork upholstery!! Did you find the perfect fabric for that job though?
    A local senior group uses upholstery samples for walker bags, too.

    That is a great story and reminds me of that old saying, "Necessity is the mother of invention."

    What a nice story. I love to hear how God works in our lives. It is usually the simple things that we take for granted that end up bringing us the most joy. Thanks for sharing your story and God bless you.
