A woman I can relate to! She is doing great work and the colors are beautiful. I bet she is having the time of her life sewing for your house. I started sewing when I was eight years old and it is my passion. I have made every concievable thing out of fabric for our houses, quilts, drapes, shades, appliqued table linens, slip covers, dog beds, etc. I found two wing chairs at Habitat for $30 and reupholstered them for another $50. I bought a very nice settee off of Craigslist ($85) and reupholstered it for $70. It is such fun and it is so comforting to have things that really are exactly our taste. I encourage everyone to learn to sew; the ability for self expression is unlimited and it will bring you such joy!
