Sometimes in the game of life, you strike out but on rare occasions you hit it out of the ball park with a home run. Well yesterday was one of those days. For the strike out, I received the zebra print fabric sample from Warehouse Fabrics. I was hoping to match the remanent zebra fabric that I bought for a steal at my local fabric store. The remanent gives me just enough fabric to cover the front of the chair I intend to upholster. That leaves me the back that I would have to do in a contrasting fabric. The thought of contrasting fabric isn’t bad but I was hoping I could score with the Zebra line from Premier Fabrics. I was wrong…….
They SO don’t match. The slub on the linen is different and the color of the zebra stripe is off – my version is black-brown while the Premier Print version is truly brown. Oh well – I am out $2.50 but at least I now know……back to the drawing board.
However, as I was moping about the fabric, I received a package in the mail from my Aunt in New York. When I went back in December, I was lamenting that my jerk chicken never tasted as good as what my Aunt made or I bought in the Bronx. She told me that the secret was this particular brand of bottled jerk sauce that I could not find out here in California. Well, I got this in the mail…..
I so did a happy dance in the kitchen when I realized it was the prized sauce. This totally made up for the fabric!
Guess what I am making this weekend???
