After a while it was all just to fluster-ating(April's word from when she was little. It seems to illustrate what I am feeling at the moment.
I finally gave up and decided to do something worthwhile to make me feel better. For some reason the words "contour chair" popped into my head. This is what I have done so far.
Tessie took one look at the first step and inquired, "Are you trying to make yourself some high heels? If you are, they are way to small."
Thanks a lot, Tessie. Not only am I fluster-ated, but I have big feet too.
"No, Tessie. It's for you." I said.
"Let me guess again. It's a warped surfboard...."
"Just you wait, Tessie. You are going to like it. I promise."
She went away and ignored me for a while.
When she came back, this is what it looked like.
"Now it looks like a warped moccasin. Are you going to bead it?" She asked.
"No, Tessie. No beads."
(By the way, in case you haven't figured it out yet...It's the contour chair....Use your imagination. Honest, it is.)
I cut the form out of foam core. I scored it at 3/16" intervals across where I wante it to bend, cutting all but the bottom layer. The knee bend is on one side and the butt bend on the other.
For the upholstery, I did the same thing as for the sofa. Two layers of thin bonded batting. The first layer was the same as the chair. The second one wrapped around to the bottom edge.
After I finished that layer, I covered the back with very thin self sticking black felt.
I got that far when Zar strode in and volunteered to try it out.
He likes it. I still have to put legs on it, but I have to talk him into moving first.
That may not be a problem. Tessie came in and when she saw it, she started growling. "Get out of MY chair!!!"
Be afraid, Zar. Be very afraid.......
Excuse me. I have to go break up a fight now and find or make some legs.
See you tomorrow.
