You may remember (or likely do not–that’s fine) that I took an upholstery class some 2+ years ago with the idea that it would give me the tools I needed to turn my worn chairs into things of beauty. As it turns out, upholstery is somewhat of an art, and I have neither natural talent in this area, nor an inclination to practice. My one gray velvet chair I almost completed during the class never became totally completed. In the time since the class, the chair has faded a bit in places to a lavender with peach tones. I am officially giving up upholstery. We have found someone who does good work at a good price, so I am getting both my gray chair and its clawed-up, bright yellow mate redone in a not-too-fussy off-white matelasse. White—am I nuts? Maybe, but at least it won’t fade.
Knitting continues to dominate the crafting agenda. I’m working on trying to take cuter in-progress pics.
