Dark,But Not Stormy Day...
We spent the morning wandering around Costco with April and Amare. Free samples of food are fun.
It does make doing minis almost non existent though.
The chair and table are now finished. For those of you that marvel at my quickness at wicker...Those two pieces took about five days. Not so fast...
I don't know if I have shown the back of the tufting before or not. I do that before I add it to the seat.
Then I stretch the fabric over the top of the foam core and padding.
I then cut a strip of index card to fit the edge of the cushion and covered that with the same fabric.
I decided on some scraps of an old quilt. Actually, it is fabric that I purchased years ago. I got it at a quilting store and it has photographs of a lot of antique quilts on it, in perfect 1" scale.
I must have bought at least a yard. I have used it on a lot of wicker.
Anyway, that and the oiling of the walnut on the table are all I finished.
The little house on the table is actually a box. I made those for sale about 20 years ago. The roof flips open to get to the inside. I think that this is the only one that I have left.
Spike's nose is out of joint, because Tessie will not let him sit on the new cushions. She only got out of it long enough for me to take the photo and to go get some hot chocolate... We are both relaxing for the rest of the day...
See you tomorrow.
