boat seat & cut silk
Still no joy getting my computer to work so only a very quick little post, just to keep me linked to this bloggy place, I can't save anything just now so I'm dipping into archives for nice images.
I love this bed/seating boat which was featured in a Scottish Interiors magazine a few years ago (maybe Scottish Homes & Interiors). I think it is totally wonderful, this is exactly the kind of found and reworked furniture that I would gladly have all over my home if I lived in a warehouse with LOTS of space. It's a long time since I read about this but I think the house may be in Fife, Scotland and may be a converted disused cinema with a view of the sea!
The piece below is antique silk embroidery and cutwork. I really enjoy doing this kind of work but I never have the patience to get this level of quality and finish, I'm a girl who always has threads hanging everywhere, but I love thready things so I have no great desire to be more perfectionist about it, though if I make things for others I do tend to clean things up and tie them off a bit more (which reminds me, Nikki, did the package arrive yet? Lots of threads there for Mouse's pleasure).
