Giving a new life to an old chair.

A few months ago I bought a few old chairs.
I wanted to start to give them a new life.

So this is the result for the first chair. I removed all the old fabric, painted the frame
with Annie Sloan chalk paint ( which I love using ) and then using old linen
recovered it and renewed the padding.

The braid on the corners was some that I've had for many years and I decided that
it would go so well with the linen cover.

The little cushion is made out of some old linen too - just an extra touch.
Now it will wait for someone to fall in love with it and it to go to a new home.

The rabbit is one of the new cushions that I showed in my post yesterday but today
I was able to take the photographs outside - the colours look better in the daylight.

New design for a new cushion.

I have been very busy in this rather bad weather making new cushions.
The rabbit is one I made this weekend - really love it.

More to come in my next post.

There are no words ……………………..

At Kerjacob the sun shines today but my heart and head
are full of sadness for La France.

"Love to you " - new pieces.

Now that winter is on its way
and I'm spending more time inside
 I'm busy
working on new things.

I've just finished eight cushions 
which I've made using linen
and images that I've printed.

At this very moment I'm waiting for parts 
to dry on 2015 Christmas cards.

I can't show those as there'll be
no surprises in the post
for family and friends !

Later this month I'll be at my village's
Christmas fair here in

Hope you like what I'm making !

Tags to go on presents
or just to hang wherever you want to make you smile !
