Chair almost complete.
The chair is almost complete. I'm not totally happy with the colour so far, so will keep dry brushing here and there until I'm happy.
Really pleased with it though, especially that it turned out how i imagined. That doesn't always happen!
Thank you for all your suggestion with how i could theme this chair. I've played around with ideas and used your suggestions but still it's not right. Maybe i just need to leave it as it is, plain and simple. The only thing that seems right to me is birds like doves on the branches but I'd like them feathered and i know I'll never have the patience for that.
Last night when i should have really gone to bed i decided I'd have a go at trying to wet felt witch hats. Not with much success!
They are in order of the attempts and the final one started to resemble a decent hat. I now have to work on achieving the correct size and keeping them totally hollow.
The last one is hollow half way up so I'm kind of getting there.
I'd like to take the tip up much longer and curl and coil, so will have to work on that too.
My Mum and step Dad are here for the week from tomorrow and so have been cleaning like a mad woman for days too. I don't know why i do this!
Its lovely weather here and would have liked to go somewhere nice during the week with them, but the boys are at school and its hard to go anywhere far away considering they are home just after 2pm each day. If there school day was longer it would be better i think.
Off to scrub some more and wash what really doesn't need to be done, lol
