Tessie took one look at the pattern and said, "Zebra". I figured it couldn't hurt. Anything would be better than the original. After several hours of painting, here it is. At least we will be able to see it now. It's no longer dull.
I simply got out my light ivory and painted all of the blue parts white, but it did take a very small brush and lots of patience.
With a bright colored pillow in it, I think it will be a show stopper, however, Tessie keeps pointing to the seam in the center of the seat and mumbling something that sounds like, "Zebra's butt...." Then she starts giggling hysterically.... We may be painting it again.....
I had to make a run over to "Miniature Memories" this morning for some wood that I ordered a couple of weeks ago. Some of it was back ordered....I did get a few pieces of something else that I think will work for what I have in mind.
On the way back, I stopped at one of the thrift shops and look what I found for one dollar and fifty cents! It is a silk mesh embroidery kit for a pin/necklace. There is enough #40 silk mesh for about four pins. There is also an ornate frame, silk thread, a chain to make it into a necklace and patterns.
Someone had started one of the roses. Other than that, the kit was like new. I imagine it was way more than $1.50 when new.
Tessie volunteered to pose with the frame.....Now I can't get it back. She grabbed my favorite pliers and has been struggling with the pin back, trying to remove it.
I don't think that she will be successful, but if she is, more power to her. I probably would never wear it as a pin and if she really wants to hang it somewhere in the townhouse, she can. Besides, it will probably keep her entertained for hours just trying to get it off....I just heard her yelling at Zar to come help her....Her and Zar with a large pair of pliers? Not a good idea. The phrase "More harm than good" comes to mind....I had better go see what's happening.
See you tomorrow.
