    My brother and I have exchanged some uphostry fabric samples and I decided to make him 3 panels to make wall art for his apartment. He didn't think he would ever get it finished. The Joanns that I go to is closing and a new one is opening in a nearby town, rather than move inventory the store has really low prices. I bought the cording edge for 75% off. I love them how about you?

    Fabulous! I love having material framed up like that. I like how those three coordinate. It's great that you got three in the same print :)

    The cording really adds to it. He is so lucky to have a sister like you. Do you think he has any other sisters that are just as sweet?

    Funny you should ask, he has 3 other sisters just as sweet or probably even sweeter, and he appreciates all of us. How do you think I can come up with an idea like this if it weren't for my sisters listening to me.
    Maybe the four sisters should travel together to see him in San Francisco and see where he hangs these.
