Like I don't have enough to do

I want to upholster something in this tapestry. Really bad.
And maybe embroider some spots of color à la Richard Saja.

Close up.

Have you thought about stretching it on to a frame, embellishing it and having it fill up a wall? I know this is not the look you are aspiring too, but here is a link of an artist that does cool things with stitching, silk fabric, and paper that might be inspirational. http://www.janno.net/english/index1.html

I say a pair of chairs, with the pom-pom ottoman between.

If if you're taking requests, could you post photos of the process? Sort of La Lampshade goes DIY!

Yes, yes, do it. That would be so awesome. Actually, bring it with you in February and we'll have a quilting bee of sorts...you, me, and Susie. Slushy alcoholic beverages not optional.
