Beauty and It's Source

A particular burgundy red shot with hot pink of magenta - summer Salvia blooms in this shade...




And like annual favorite Coleus, with deep sharp colors ...



 ...the owner of this long, curvaceous Victoriana sofa...








Sought just the right burgundy - bordeaux we decided in the end, but Fabricut calls it Zenith 007.





First the sofa was stripped to the frame - sinuous springs in back, 36 coil springs in seating -




Rewebbed and coil springs retied 8 times...




Recovered deck and sculpted edgeroll, new foam to back marked at 6 " horizontal and 9" vertical increments to form 51 diamond shaped tufts.




This is most of what fueled me thru this job - lots of strawberries from Seward Co-Op with peaches and mint




My client has so strongly influenced me to this color - I see it everywhere now ...




S. Harris' Mardi Gras/01







Ankle-strap wedge - somewhere online, forgot to copy the link - but always a wedge is great when the heel is wrapped...





Robert Allen's Sedium/Cherry Bark





Fabric like music, so hard to pick a favorite - but this has got to be it...Desert Island fabric - could not live without  looking every day at Manuel Canovas' Sari.

 And how did it finish? With 27 yds of double welt cord trim, new down cushion fill...



..waiting to go home to...


 
a happy household of people and pets
