Still Playing With the New Toys....

OK...I still am not back to wiring.  This is too much fun. 

I dug out my supply of silk gauze and silk thread.  I think that I am going to have to find some darker green, but otherwise, I have a pretty good selection.

The silk gauze that you see is some bargello that I started a while ago.  Just trying out colors.

I am leaning more towards something floral.  Who knows how it will end up?
The black with gold is going to need some touch up work on the gold.  It is a bit crudely painted. 

Strangely enough, the color work is very nice.  I have a feeling that there were two different people on the assembly line....One with gold paint and one with floral colors.
Tessie has already made a list of the pieces that she wants.  This table is my favorite, but I guess that she can have it, since it won't work in my house....A little small.

I am browsing through my reference books to see if I can spot any of the pieces in them.  This may take a while and I imagine that the manufacturers didn't do them exactly like the original pieces.  I would love to see if I can find any of them for real.
I am getting close, but so far, no cigar.  As they say...

Very Chippendale like. 

The reason I am looking is, I would like to find some with the original covering on the seats....I can only dream.

I need to check the Victoria and Albert Museum website for examples.
This is what Widget thinks of the whole procedure.....Very little.  He would rather I was doing something that only took one hand, so that I could be petting him with the other.

Spoiled???  No way....Well maybe a little.

Back to the books.

See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey! Love all your new goodies, it looks like you had a fabulous time at the show. I also really like the floral rug pattern. Wonder who should get that one? Hugs, Sarah

Sarah, the pattern is a full sized pillow. I never thought of using It for a mini rug. Thanks for the idea! It may take a while before I get to it though....
