A year ago when we arrived in Canada my cousin gave me a Christmas decoration which needed a little TLC. Well, it's taken me a while to get around to it but finally I now have a "Welcome" wall hanging for the hall! First I took off all the holly and spruce, I also removed the top layer of the wooden bow which had, at some point, come adrift and had been nailed back on not altogether successfully! Then I rubbed it down and filled the nail holes.
So, next project is...... chair backs! I saw these on Etsy
I didn't want lace, however, because I thought it would be too O.T.T. with a crochet table cloth. So I purchased a cream cotton sheet from the bargain shop (too impatient to wait till I go thrifting next week), I have some cream satin and cream tuille netting and I have a certain little design of my own floating around in my tiny brain. Of course Lovely Man knows NOTHING... he will hate them because they are too 'poofy'! So we're not going to tell him till they are finished and in situ... what's known as a fait a compli... one of those "Oh don't you like them? But I've finished them now..." moments! OK? Mum's the word!
