...is pretty late today, I may or may not have been stitching finishing touches on this blasted WIP that is a WIP no longer!! Hurrah! I really have 'My Creative Space' to thank for the extra motivation... I just couldn't face another "...well, I'm almost finished..." post, and if I didn't get it done I don't have a whole lot else going on in my space this week - it's hard to get to through piles of blankets, pillows & overnight bags.
So, without further ado;
A Corduroy Patched old style rocker.
I roped my poor little sister into helping with the last few squares too, even though she's not sewn anything before, and she did a great job! (Spanks Sis!)
What inspired (possesed) me to patch an entire freaking chair?! Well, necessity, actually. The side of the damn thing had exploded;
In Handmade Home, Amanda has almost a side note on embellishing worn spots on old furniture with doilies & patches & what not & I thought (stupidly) "Why not do the whole chair?!". The answer to that is "Because it will take FOREVER!" but what is done is done... and it looks pretty nifty if I do say so myself.
This is going to reside there in front of my crafty cabinet, and will hence forth be known as "The crafting throne".
