My client was moving to Alaska---so we were on a deadline with this one. We had one week from the time the fabric finally arrived till the movers were coming. She ordered her fabric from Calico Corners...amazing navy blue/tan herringbone. 

Couch---BEFORE


 Couch--AFTER


I worked very hard to match up all the stripes! Even from the front of the arm going across to match up with the front of the couch (if that makes sense).

Cushions...check out those stripes...I had to make sure the diagonal on the band was matching up as well.


SIDE NOTE #1

Today is our 15 yr anniversary!

 Our Wedding Day!



Here is a pic from our anniversary date a few days ago...we went to the outdoor theatre at Sundance to see "7 Brides for 7 Brothers". Then we headed up to our cabin for the night. The next day we rented tubes and floated down the Provo river. Awesome date! I love this man!

Heber used to work at Sundance when we were dating, so we had spent a lot of time there. I used to meet up with him and ride in the snow cat with him while he groomed the ski slopes. He taught me how to ski (I hated going fast), so we did cross country skiing for awhile until I got used to it.

 He used to take me and my sisters to the outdoor movies. We'd go to the Grill Room for dinner. He'd take me on the snow mobiles, and the ski lift, and hiking. He even proposed at an overlook of Stewart Falls.
