I am not sure I would have embarked on this crochet project if I had realised that it would take over my life! But, there is no turning back now. I have decided that it will make a great throw to go over the chair in my bedroom so I am in the process of making it a bit wider.
This chair is old and very well used and should really be thrown away but it belonged to my husbands aunt of whom I was very fond. It is a leather chair and the leather is very cracked and worn . I have it set up with a booster seat cushion and back support so I can stand with out pressure on my back. (I have broken a number of back vertibrae in the past which are now starting to cause pain.)
It is a bit 'hotck potch' because I am using all the left over wool and I find that I will probably run out of the green background yarn so I will have to solve that problem.
I just can't settle to stitching at the moment so have decided to do some printing.
I bought this kit a number of years ago and I found it unopened and covered with dust. I'm glad I didn't throw it away because although it is designed for paper printing I am going to print on fabric with it using acrylic paints. I found a cheap on-line course to learn the basics.
I have done other courses with Carla on-line and have found them very clear and easy to understand. I need to get some more supplies before I progress to the next class including a cover for the floor of the patio where I work. (I am so messy.)
This fabric will be for use in my book cover project I have been working on this year.
