Crafty Freaks #4



The Crafty Freaks project has been a great impetus to get some things done that I've been wanting to do for ages. This week I tackled some basic upholstery! I had recovered this stool about 15 years ago and it was starting to look pretty tatty...




I have a huge pile of tapestries so I sewed them together - voila!!!

Crafty Freaks #3


Phew! I nearly didn't get this one done in time! I was a bit stumped this week on what to do and subsequently left it until the last minute.

In December last year (yes, LAST year) a friend  asked me if i would fix a ring of hers that was coming apart. The thread had worn through and needed to be re-woven so I bought some wax thread and gave it a go! My first attempt was a bit crappy so I left it sitting in a bowl tormenting me to finish it....

Done...
