Tired of Weaving Now?
I am about half way through. I will do a mirror image on the other end when I deem it half done.
I thought that she would want a footstool. Nope. She explained, "We have lots of tuffets. Surely one will go with the decor."
Then she announced that she needed a side table to sit her hot chocolate upon, when relaxing in the evening....I think that she should have just stopped at the hot chocolate part...She is relaxed much of the time. Not just in the evening.
First I cut two pieces of walnut the size that she wanted. They are about 1 1/2" square and have 51 holes drilled in the top. Four in the bottom.
The inner smaller hole is to make sure that the corner gets covered with the wicker.
In each corner, as I am weaving, I add stitches to make a squarer corner. then when I work down from there, I bend it to fit the corner.
I am well on the way to finishing the weaving...Then I will have to do cushions and a finish on the table top.
Tessie keeps mumbling, "Hurry up! I want to relax. I can't relax with you still working on this stuff....Hurry up!"
She said the "hurry up" part a few more times than was needed to get the message across.
I guess that I should get to work and finish it. At least it will be a little quieter if I do....Just the loud slurping of hot chocolate.....
See you tomorrow.
