Old Wooden Chair

Another finished Block.....
"Old Wooden Chair"
This is definately one of my favourite blocks as
I have quite a few old wooden chairs at my house.....
On our deck with the outdoor table....
On our deck near the BBQ.....
Just inside the front door......
In the Rumpus room for my bears.....
These ones in the dining room are not
old but made from old timbers.....
I picked this one up for Miss Molly's room....
I am going to paint it off white and recover the seat...
One Day!!!!! Ha ha!
And this one is in my little sewing space.....
There's a bit of dust on it beacause I have
been enjoying my hand stitching....
I will have to dust it off and get the mini quilts
stitched for my "Sewing Block"
Stitching night tonight with the sewing girls...Yay!
Until next time, Happy Stitching
Kate

You do have a lot of "old" chairs...I have been mulling over whether to substitute something else in this block but the chair looks easy to do...it just isn't one of my favorite things........maybe a rocker....Thanks for showing all of them.
