What's your record?

I made 20 yards of double welt cord yesterday for 10 dining room chairs. I think this is my all time record.

49 yards of single welt cord for a sofa, loveseat, ottoman, and pillows all in the same fabric, a few years back.

I don't remember how much it was, but over 20 years ago I made DW for a lady that was padding and covering just about every wall in her huge home. It seemed like I made enough to wrap around the house 3 or 4 times.

But since I made it in several installments, I'm not sure if I ever did 20 yards in one sitting.

So therefore, since I don't have proper documentation...........I bow to you.........Oh DW king!


I could probably challenge that SW record also. But again, Can't say for sure.

The only record that I boldly stake a claim to is:
Most batons found in a sofa (5). The family had 3 daughters on the high school drill team.

Being new to texting I have been making an attempt to learn texting shorthand. My first thought on your comment SoFaD was "How does he know that I don't give a rat's a$$ about anything?

DW means Don't Worry in cyber texting.

But, having realized that I am currently on my computer and not on my sell phone, you probably meant something else.

Yes, double welt cord king. With tired hands.
