hi grace, i'd be proud to have it in my living room, it's very zen-like.
yes... we were so patient while you stitched and stitched! ha! it looks great though! congratulations!
I like that in earlier stages, I still saw the "jeans-ness" of it, now, it feels materially transformed and I see the "blue-nesses" of it... shades and variations and subtle shifts - great transformation. I bet the dogs like it!
nandas...by patience, i meantlong suffering, seeing the samething over and over. but i cansee things in a different way whenthey are pictured here...thosetwo magnifications, for one, butalso..somehow it's like thedistancing allows me to lookmore objectively????or something
its no trouble to follow you through your process. i like it that you use the blog as a tool... the way i use my camera too, but just not on the blog. it takes no patience for me anyway... i just like following along seeing what you see. i really liked all the photos of light... makes me want to visit again.
Looks great Grace...your patience and perseverance has paid off. Love the look of it!Jacky xox
Very handsome Grace. Does the button attach it to the sofa? Following your process is great, so glad you're recording it.
Worth watching as you looked, held the cloth, began to piece, found the windfall, added your special pieces/touches. Looking at this cover relaxes me; makes me feel cozy all over, looks inviting and comfortable. Utilitarian as well as lovely. You can't ask for more...except to actually stretch out on the futon!
and you can always keep going.
This is absolutely glorious- and I agree with Valerianna that it is a study of blue-nesses. What a wonderful word..... Thank you for sharing this project.

That is one beautiful and original couch cover - and I've enjoyed seeing it emerge!
O Grace what a wonderful jeans couch.(Reminds me of the chair my daughter renewed with cloth made out of old jeans! perhaps you remember I showed it on the Beasts blog) I think you must be VERY satisfied with the result of your hard labour!!!
grace it's interesting how you work your blog, it's different...more like an open forum discussion. you should leave the futon and it's cover handy for us to sit on when we all drop in to chat. cheers, k.
kaite...what an interesting andGREAT comment...i often think that i can't thinkof a way to say what i wish thisblog can be...and here...you have said it!am going to think about thisnow, as i wait for the Sun toriseTHANK YOU for your words andthe Heart within them ~.~
a handsome piece
Valerianna ... yes...it did becomean entirely different thing...thejeansness slowly melding in withthe stitches..i still will needto invisible baste every seam andthat will continue the alchemyof cloth/cloth=CLOTH.
Jan..Thank You for your vote ofconfidence!...handsome ~ i smile!
and judeyes. already i am eyeing it.first to do all the remaininginvisible baste. and am thinkingtoday...well,what about theback?????
Grace, it is serene and beautiful. It reminds me the song, the Curtains of Night..."when the curtains of night are pinned back by the stars, and the beautiful moon sweeps the sky"...
Suzanna..yes, it IS serene, isn'tit...who would have thought? ihad imagined it would be practicalbut uh, clunky. it is not at allclunky, because of it's being handstitched..?..i think.....and also...oh, broken record me,and also because of theinvisible baste.that truly DOES something verymagic.thank you for liking it.
wonderful, the peacefulness of the cloth sitting there is lovely ... what a pleasure too to have followed the process - i love process!
Oh this is beautiful Grace. I loved the picture with the dogs too.
