On my desk 06.01.09......


...... well not actually on my desk, it's a piano stool top in need of TLC. I stitched it years ago, the colours are not as bright as they were (enhanced here to near original), and the braid around the edge is tatty. So I'm wondering whether to take it off, wash it and add new braid - or to dump it and start again. I'll think about it!

How interesting. When we first moved to this house 24 years ago we got a piano and an antique stool with a horrible green top so I started to make one in needlepoint inspired by kaffe Fassets book. We got rid of the piano years ago (well..its in the washouse ..I can't part with anything) and I've nearly finished the cover for the stool..just got those boring straight lines round the edge..but we're just redecorating the room and it doesn't go!Yours is very classy.

How about recycling into post cards etc if you really think it out to go!

I think faded textiles are beautiful.
This is lovely Connie.
Don't throw your braid away, I pull the threads out of old braid and sew with it!
