I’ve done something today that I’ve never done before!! Wanna hear the story?
On my walk today I saw a chair that someone had left out for hard rubbish collection. I have NEVER in my life picked up anything from the side of the road/off the nature strip, but this chair had me thinking.
Being at the start of my constitutional, I didn’t stop to check it but continued the thought processes as I paced it out and decided I’d extend my usual route to get back to the chair, and if it was still there, it would be mine! As I headed back to investigate I told each car heading to/from that direction that they better not be getting MY chair! And as I rounded the hill……yes! There it was! Having learnt a thing or two from Miss Kaye, I dutifully checked out the frame – tick for sturdiness; checked out the legs – tick for evenness and, added bonus, there are little rubber bits at the end of each leg; checked out the seat – tick, nothing that can’t be fixed. So I lifted up my new treasure and carried it home!
In my sewing area, I sit to draw, design and prepare hand work on this chair…
I’m envisioning painting it in that Nordic pale turquoise, then having the seat covered in one of my Kokka fabrics. Maybe this…..
So Miss Magpie, staple gun at the ready??!! It’s good to have friends with know-how!
