I Do Not Sew

I do not sew.
So why do I find myself with
a rather large stash of fabric?
And why is it so difficult for me
to pass by
fabric remnants
at the thrift store
or the fabric store?
And why do I even find myself
in a fabric store
when I do not sew?

Perhaps it's because every once in a while
I stumble upon a great deal on some
fantastic fabric.
And then I use that fantastic fabric to cover a seat.And I give that spray paint color a second chance.And the result is an outdoor chair
that looked like this
now looks like this. And, without sewing,
I've made a pretty little spot
by my side door that beckons me
to rest and enjoy my shade garden.

Woohoo! I LOVE that color. I used two cans of it on my wicker chair. Now I have to find fabric for a cushion.
