Sometimes it's not so bad to get "benched."  If the bench is covered in pretty french script that is....

While strolling through the fabric store I found this pretty script fabric and had a light bulb moment.  Less than a yard of this rather pricey fabric would do just fine for this project...
I have enough left over to make a few pillows and I'll show you when I get them done.

The chandelier pillow cover was a gift from my sister.  Love it!
Wonder when we will all get over the french script thing and the numbers thing????
Wonder what we will be loving this time next year????
