Two More Chairs & A Pillow

Two Doves admire a Pillow for Priscilla -

Completed more slipcovers for Two more Chairs-
Sewn from a contrasting fabric of a warm check pattern -
So soft to the touch - much like a sweater.
Also used the same fabric for a flange surrounding
the custom-shaped pillow shown above.
The Two Chairs shown together -
The arms presented the challenge of fitting the skirt
around them - But liked the way the pleats softly evolved -
falling in a nice neat way.

Close up of the Pillow
Enjoyed the way the two fabrics worked together -
along with an Embroidered Silk Fragment -
piping and decorative gimp.

More Projects on the way. . . . .
In the meantime - some "Fun Figure Sculptures
(By R. Rae and painted by Me)
Hoping for some more Summer weather-!
