~my sofa~

My huge 96"sofa is almost 9 years old and starting to wear on the skirt.. So I took the box pleated skirt off (never did like it). I then added the matelasse piece across the bottom, well now it too has worn. So this time I added a deep ruffled skirt.. It took me forever to do this! I had to hand ruffle it. Never again. To all your lucky Gals out there that have a machine ruffler bless your sweet hearts! LOL.. my 2 machines are OLD. I do like the ruffled skirt much better..

Hi Mary,
I love your sofa. The Norfolk Rose Pattern is one of my favoite. Did you buy the sofa that way or had it especially covered in that fabric? Your LR always brings a joy to my heart and a smile to my face when I see it. So warm, cozy and inviting. I have that wallborder in my bedroom, valance and duvet that I have made. Never tire of looking at the fabric

Hi Mary,
Meant to add to my other post that I always have "ruffled" by hand. Thats how my mother taught me. I don't even know if my machine ruffles or not. LOL Try ruffling a dust ruffle on a king size bed. LOL It looks great but time consuming. Love your sofa.

The new ruffled skirt couldn't possibly be more perfect.

That looks fabulous! I love the Norfolk Rose print. I have it in my guest bath. I just never get tired of it. On my sofa I have a duvet cover tucked under the cushions. It is a Cath Kidston that I bought from.....drum roll here.....Amy!
