I haven't been on for a while or crafting much lately but I thought I would share this fun project.  The chair was raffled to raise money for the local library.  The book I used was "Exploring Elizabethan Embroidery" by Dorothy Clarke and designs by Stephanie Powell.  It was a lot of fun to make and the needle weaving was very easy and fast.  I'm planning to make another chair next year using another book in the Elizabethan Embroidery series.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

*Snicker* "Chair-ity"! It looks very nice, the pink is a good touch.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
