The Moons of Saturn...
It said. "Fabric for the Time Machine bench." That was all. Not even an "If you please."
I did find another short one inside the folds. It said, "Moons of Saturn"... I am not sure if that is what the fabric reminds Daisy of or if it is an address for where she got it...
Anyway, I took the hint and made the bench. It is basically the same as the ones in the kitchen but two legs and ovals, instead of one leg and circles.
I stained the two small ovals for the bottom footing and one of the large ones for the bottom of the top of the bench.
I cut an oval that was about 3/4" larger than the oval all around. I slashed that with Vs all around, so that there would not be extra layers of fabric. I trimmed the ends more after I got them glued down.
I trimmed the edge of both the bottom and the top with fancy braid.
I am not sure that I shouldn't have made it to match the desktop, with leather and studs.
Oh well, it is just something to sit on a few minutes at a time. Not a lot of wear and tear.
The real rug is on the right. The two on the left are the patterns I made to work from. Together, they make a complete pattern. I am too lazy to go back and combine the two.
I would say that I have about two thirds of it done. I am nothing, if not determined to finish it...
Oh! Oh! I just found another note in the fabric... This one is a little longer...
It reads, "Dear Casey, The rug that you are stitching would look fabulous in the time machine. That's a hint... Love Daisy."
That's not going to happen. This rug is MINE!
Daisy, if you are reading this.... Go make your own rug! I'm not doing this one twice! And besides, it wouldn't fit. Too big.
See you tomorrow...
