Greetings all. Another nice week coming, now predicted for high 70's. Mark is finishing up the second coat of oil base of the last swing. We have one other chair in the attic, brand new unfinished, which we will probably keep that way for now. We bought the swings locally many years ago and since then the high back cedars have more than doubled in price. Doesn't bode well for replacing our cedar siding if it's risen that much.
I was trying to decide if I should just line and hang Ruth on the wall with the others. Then I thought a larger kind of flat pillow may be something different. With a little stuffing she would fit perfectly here and the black back shows her off nicely.
The other option, since I have so much fabric left at the bottom, would be to fold it back and create a pouch with fringed back flap. It would double as a display pillow but I could remove the quilt batting piece and have a usable pouch if I change my mind. Two options for one finish sounds good.
Then I saw the Gable House Goodes post here and my plans melted. I started searching the house for a piece of shaped wood or something I could dismantle to use. And then it happened. I lost Ruth. Bad habit of setting something down when I am distracted and then .... where the hell is it. Took me quite a while to find her again. My mind was made up to do a board pouch, but I have a tattered old quilt from mom and it may be better to use those scraps for the pouch, making one for Carole too. This one is just gorgeous fabric and color isn't it? Well what of her creations is not?
Have a great day!!
