Butterfly fabric...

Oh my!
I have found the most gorgeous French looking butterfly fabric!
The craziest thing is I was actually shopping for some fabric 
to make a new summer skirt...
and then I saw it...
AND I just had to HAVE it!
Sweet Butterflies...
 With the word butterfly... in different languages...
 I purchased 4 metres 
with absolutely no idea what I was to do with it.
Madness I know..
But that is what crazy crafters do!
This stool could do with a little makeover...
And I do need a new table runner...emmm...
So a sewing and reupholstering we will go!
 The little stool was first...
This darling piano stool belonged to my mother in law...
She used it as her dressing table stool.  
It's well and truly 'antique'!
 First I had to pull out a million staples and nails 
to get the original and second fabric covers off...
 Wasn't that old type of wadding revolting stuff!
On went new wadding...
 and the gorgeous butterfly fabric...
Arabella is checking my workwomanship!
Mia Bella Garden cats are big on quality control!
 Add a few more new staples...
Did I mention I am forever grateful to whomever invented the staple gun!
Staple gun = best invention EVER!
 And this is the end result...
 After this do-up, I sewed a lovely table runner to match....
Check out tomorrows post for the end result...
Until then, have a fabulously 'HAPPY' day.
