Yard Sale Score

This morning on the way to work I spied a yard sale sign, pointing down a little country lane (one of the few remaining in our area). I drove up to a huge brick mansion and looked over the goods spread across their expansive lawn. Not much caught my eye, but this bedspread/tablecloth or whatever it was. Turns out it was FREE because it had some big holes.

But the holes were off toward the ends and I could cut and sew.Cut, cut, cut the good part out. Sew, sew, sew the raw edges. And I end up with a nice, large throw for the chair or sofa. I may or may not add more fringe to the edges.

I gave it a long soak in Oxyclean before I threw it across the chair.
