The wood on the chair back will be grey too. It just needs priming. I’m leaving the seat and the table top which will get sanded and finished when I can take it outside. I need a primer coat and two coats of paint all of which will be done a little at a time.
After lunch, I headed into the studio to finish the quilting on the Gelli print tote bag. Then I trimmed it, stitched the sides together and cut the lining. I didn’t put it together yet as I have to make the straps.
In the meantime I had pulled this piece from the closet — another unfinished project. It is layered with strips of fabrics in colors that reminded me of the skies when I’m out snow shoeing.
Once it’s all stitched down and the foreground bushes and small trees are stitched, I want to add 3 birch trees.
Here is the idea:
It is only January but I’m determined to finish up a few things before I start something new. My closet is full! I’m in the process of planning and getting an estimate to open up the double sized closet and add kitchen cabinets to the top. I currently have a desktop in there so I would also like a countertop across the width which would make room for a sewing machine.
The idea is to clear up some space in the room to be put to better use— mainly an armchair for hand work. It is a nice sunny room and I’d like to take more advantage of it. I will post picks when I get started. First, I have projects to finish and cleaning out to do!
