Tessie came in and started fidgeting. I asked what was wrong. She hemmed and hawed and then said....."You can't send Kathi this chair."
At first I thought that she was just looking for an excuse to keep the chair for herself. Then she said, "It has streaks." I looked at it and sure enough there were several areas that were more cream colored than white. I took it in and showed it to Walter. We were both mystified.
The only thing I could finally figure out was that I used a new brand of wax for the thread. It only changed the color in a couple of places, but I won't be using that wax again.
I had gotten as far as cutting out all of the pieces for the seat and pillow before I discovered the boo boo. I went ahead and finished the seat cushion in the fabric that Kathi had chosen.
I stopped mid stream. I ripped out all of the weaving on the chair and started over.
Here you see the new weaving. Kathi, you will have your chair soon. It will be white. I will send it out on Monday. Sorry about the wait.
My only problem now is that you and Spike like the same color. Tessie wants your cushion because it matches Spike's favorite collar.
Luckily, I have a bit left over. Spike already had an elegant fourposter doggy bed that I made for him a while ago. I have the feeling that there will be at least a new mattress cover for it in the turquoise fabric. Maybe I can convince him that it is too girl-y for a bull dog. Way too many flowers.
I am going to go sit in a corner, pout, and weave now....
See you all tomorrow.
