At hubby's suggestion, she is called "Stella". She almost didn't get finished today as we slipped into town to meet up with some friends at the pub for a pint (or two - ;))
I received a small swatch of this blue and orange fabric in a swap. I love this colour combination and have seen these splendid colours recently in a very cool man's shirt.
And twenty years ago when we bought our house, we bought it fully furnished as the seller didn't want to keep the furniture. Guess what my colour scheme was for the first 5 years or so - blue and orange - right out of the 60s. Ah, I miss that bright orange naugahide couch.

When they killed that nauga, I sat down and cried!"
