A while back my friend Caroline asked me for some more memo boards for her lovely shop Ruby Rock Cake in Lyme Regis. Finally I've made a huge batch. These are the only six finished though! I'm awaiting red ribbon, narrower ribbon for mini boards, more wadding...
Why do I never have everything I need for a project?
So, an interim tah-dah.
Nice to get outside in the sun for some photos even though it was absolutely freezing.
Love this 'new' old duckling fabric I got recently. Now I've cut into it for a memo I'll have to make some cushions and other bits whilst I'm feeling springy.
My other project that's been looming for some time is this pile of chairs. They've lurked in the corner of the dining room since last summer with visitors raising their eyebrows and asking what I'm planning for them. But I could see them finished. I knew what barkcloth I wanted to use, I even had a roll of heavy duty canvas to go underneath so no supplies needed, but just couldn't bite the bullet and see how to do it.
However today I plucked up courage and took one apart. I cut new canvas and sewed the barkcloth to it before reassembling reasonably easily. I love these chairs in a basic scruffy kind of way. I'm dreaming of a green and pink kitchen and think they'll look great lined up along my long table. Think I'll use it as my February monthly make...
I think I need to go and think about food. I'm ashamed to say all I've eaten all day is a bag of giant chocolate buttons...
Have a lovely weekend.
