Take a seat…

I bought this chair at Diss auction a couple of years ago. It’s taken me a while, working on it in my spare time, but it’s finally finished. It’s the standard six-way cane pattern.

Its beautiful out this afternoon, what a contrast to last week!

It’s going in the living room by the fire, I just need to cover the seat cushion. I’m thinking something by William Morris. 😊

Coiling and thawing…

I spent yesterday afternoon coiling this small basket and lid whilst watching Suffolk thaw. It was a super simple stitch using chunky sash cord for a core and jute twine for stitching.

This morning whilst trying to take a photo of it I realised what I really needed was a light diffusing box. So I cobbled one together from an old cardboard box and tissue paper. After scrambling around for a couple of lamps I don’t think the results are too bad. I would love to get my hands on a third lamp and play about with light coming from above as well.
