Lately, I have been spending all of my free time on Gertie the couch. Almost done (you can sneak a peek in the second photo down there). But last night at the magical hour of 10:53pm, my fellow spinster and I used a free moment to nuture our inner children and do a little craft project with some duct tape and leftover superfoam.

This is after I freaked out from the awful stench and scrapped everything except what is now called the "couch bones". And hey, guess what? It STILL smells(it's those darn springs). I've got a date tonight with a brillo pad and a can of Comet.
This is a crappy photo of the fabric I bought. I really wanted to use an Anna Maria Horner botanical print, but it was $16 a yard. The stuff I got at coughwalmartcough was $5 a yard (sorry, Anna Maria Horner). I'm going to use those strips of gingham for the piping, which will be a big pain in the butt to do, but oooooooh well.
