Rugs and Wicker...
I start by marking out the size of the border that I want and making sure that I know where the center lines are in both directions.
Now I am off and running.
I also did most of a wicker chair for Tessie's guests to sit in... She specifically wanted something "not nearly as grand as her own".
I complied and now I have to go back and cut off all of the wires and braid the trim. It needs to be straightened here and there. When I am working on wicker, there is always a need at the end to straighten all of the wires and thread once more. I am at that point now.
I also plan to make a couple of wicker plant stands and a table to go between the chairs.
I am pleased with the terracotta pots that I did yesterday. They turned out looking like real terracotta after a bit more painting. I think that they still need a bit of dirt and wear marks here and there.
Just not today. Today I am stitching and weaving up a storm. And yelling a lot, "Tessie! Get that gator off of the rug! I just started it!"
See you tomorrow.
