Nursery Rocking Chair

Nursery Rocking chair in Duck egg Spot Fabric

Piped box cushion with invisible zipper & bow ties
Arm padding with white enamel studs

This weeks commission was a customisation of an old rocking chair. The chair was ready painted by the customer for me to add the arm pads and make a box cushion - such a good idea, and perfect for a nursery.
It was a bit tricky getting the Enamel studs in the correct place and there were quite a few wasted --grrr! But  very happy with the overall finish and cant wait to see how it looks in the Nursery with Mummy and the little one (due in a week) in the chair.

Slipper Chair ReVamp

This was an old Laura Ashley bedroom chair that was looking a bit 90's and in need of some attention. The old fabric was stripped off, and replaced with a beautiful pink chenille spot and purple velvet fabric. Each of the buttons on the back is a different fabric, the piping is patterned on the back and the silver show tacks add a modern finishing touch.

Highdays and Holidays

The past two weeks have gone something like this: 
Heatwave! Pack house up, load van, unload van, move into new house,work on an armchair, friends' Wedding, Jubilee BBQ, another BBQ, (where my parents met his parents!) Visit a magical chapel,  Steam train ride in Blaenau Ffestiniog, Drive round lake Bala and Vyrnwy, pack for camping, go camping, RAIN! Get washed away, dry out, meet all our friends in Snowdonia for his 30th, go for a walk, get merry round the campfire, go climbing, come home, unpack......and breathe. Somewhere in all of this I have managed to design T shirts for the trip (made by the lovely folk at Loglike), make 2 curries, and eat a lot of meringue.

Patriotic Meringue
