The Chair and other rag-tag bits . . .
I finally finished my husband's armchair this week, glueing on the gimp and sewing the last bit of cord in place on an arm. I never realized how good a match the material was for the carpet before . . .
Here's how it looked before I got started. The springs had completely collapsed, and the back dowels had broken, but OH soon fixed that. The springs had to be replaced and took quite a bit of wrestling to tie into position!
As you can see, Snowy wanted to help. Sadly, you can also see the cancer has returned to his ear.
Photo showing the broken back - OH put in long hefty screws to hold the back.
Here's another of the hats - this one for T's boyfriend.
. . . and a few photos which never made it first time round . . .
Flooding down at the Bishop's Pond, Abergwili.
This week's Apple Pie.
Finally, that Walking the Census photograph - the two ruined cottages out of sight in the undergrowth . . .
