Come in and grab a seat....in my new Stitching Chair!!! While I do the happy dance in front of you. I'll serve a cup of coffee or tea to calm your nerves after enduring that sight....lol....I promise.
It's officially called a Garden chair, but that's not going to happen. Even the chair comes with a little umbrella, we're staying in the lounge with our cuppas, as they call it here in Australia. Is it called a cuppa too at your place or is it something Australian? No clue actually.
The Garden Chair
Designer: The Cat's Whiskers
Fabric: 32ct Belfast "Mint Green"
Fibers: Recommended Dinky Dyes Silk
The stitching was finished since quite a while but it took me until yesterday to finally put it all together. Officially the little chair has a draw at the front, but after finishing it, I decided that I like it better without a draw and changed it.
Funny detail: It was a Mothers Day gift from my husband in 2009, and got finished on Mothers Day 2011. And I didn't even realize that until it was finished.
And now a confession. I feel very ashamed.....Last week I was looking around in my lounge and a beautiful little pillow that Joke made for me caught my eye. At once I felt my heart sinking in my shoes....did I ever post about that on my blog???? No I didn't. Which is terrible rude of mine. I sent already an email to Joke with my apologies and do it here again. I'm SO very sorry. Joke must have thought I didn't like it. But I ADORE it. It has a place of honor in our lounge in full view. So here is a picture of the lovely Reindeer Ornament Pillow that Joke made for me:
It's lovely isn't it?
There is an update on Amsterdam as well:
And I knitted another pair of socks:
from the book: Socks from the Toe Up" by Wendy D. Johnson
Wool: Malabrigo Sock "Ochre"
That's all from this part of the world. I'm going back now to my stitching chair...with a cuppa!!!
