What I Have Been Working On

I have been busy in the studio for the last few weeks.  A friend of mine had this old bistro set, that needed some TLC and I needed some chair cushions made.  So we did a trade!  I made over her bistro set for her and she is making chair cushions for me.

Here is one of the chairs before.  The set had a mesh table top and mesh seats...


Here is the set now....






We are going to meet soon and trade, her newly remade bistro set, for my chair cushions.  When I get the cushions, I will post about them.

Welcome Home,
Penny

    (I've been saving up all my broken pieces of blue and white crocks for the last ten or so years and keep meaning to 'do' a mosaic for the garden....you may just have inspired me!)

    Oh, I made some of the bread in your last post. I found a recipe on the net and it is DELICIOUS. Mine didn't rise much but, oh, it is tasty. I had never heard of the bread before. You inspired me to bake it, tho.
