Finished the chair covers


I finally finished the covers today and the result is not bad.  I have not used such bright fabric before and stripes are always a challenge so it went better than I expected. The only down side is that I am not sure the fabric goes with the new rug...Well I will just have to make some more covers I suppose when I have time.  Meanwhile I have been finishing off the lounge by touching up the skirting board with primer paint where the sanding mouse knocked some of the paint off. Tomorrow I should be able to undercoat and then top coat maybe later if it dries in time, if not it will be Wednesday.

I helped to put the Christmas tree into its container after we cut an inch off the bottom so it would take up water. So the tree is outside keeping cool. The next job is to make Christmas cards and we usually do this one between us (DH and I). His broadcast on Radio Cumbria was played today and he will be featured all week on the Ian Timms show, so I have put a link at the top right for those of you who want to listen to his side of the diary for the same week I kept mine.

I hope the next one is too, you see I have the rocking chair to do next. Different fabric, maybe even more tricky, I don't know until I start, infact I should have started tonight but I chickened out....
