Someone give a certificate of crafty appreciation to Milwaukee resident Molly Evans. The clever lass had managed to merge guerilla embroidery and Lionel Ritchie lyrics, all in the name of giving abandoned furniture a voice – or more specifically, as she says, Lionel's lovable, swoon-worthy, smooth as butter voice.
