to this below lol
the first of my proposed set of odd and differently painted/distressed dining chairs : )
I've sent for some wide ric rac to stick round the edges of the lightly padded seat back and then it will be complete and I can claim a 'finish' : )
Chair number 2 is already undercoated but the outer edges of Hurricane Bertha stopped me top coating it outside today. My patio flooded again but least I can say I've now 'paddled' twice this year, although neither time was I at the beach!
I'm going to have to teach myself German, since I bought a fabulous book but it's in German lol and what's more, I knew it was in German when I bought it.
So further proof of my daftness, right?
Well possibly, but I was intrigued by the unusually shaped EPP templates.
The book is 'Liesels Funfecke' by Hilde Klatt and Liesels Niesner
and here's a taste of why it interests me.
I love the skew whiff, not quite a hexi shaped petals and when they are fussy cut, there are some cracking possibilities.
Since I can't read whatever it is the authors call the template shape,
I'm sticking with hexi!
I'm sure there's a proper name for it so do tell me if you know it please : )
A bit of a different 'hexi flower' layout below.
Spot the cat - lol
