have a seat


On second thoughts maybe you shouldn't sit here
as you'll cover up the only craftiness
I've managed lately .

You know how it is family , house , work , it all
takes time and craftiness just for the pleasure
of it somehow just needs to be crammed
in between somewhere .
This is why I decided to cover this old chair
as the vegetables were cooking last night .

Ooh you may be thinking that must look
lovely in Clare's shabby chic designer bedroom
that of course must be immaculate .


Well I hate to disappoint you but my bedroom
is an absolute disaster and this beautiful chair
is just a spare kitchen chair for.....
the cats !

Lucky cats! I'm making sure Herself Jindi the Kelpie doesn't peek over my shoulder as I read your blog...she'll be wanting me to recover the couch (that she isn't allowed to sit) just for her!! It is a very pretty chair now.

I'd be making sure they wiped their paws and groomed out the loose hair before they sat on that pretty chair :)!

Even cats have to have somewhere pretty to sit and covering a chair takes a lot less time than other forms of crafting. I know- Ive recovered many many chairs.

It looks catalicious Clare. Brilliant do over!

Lovely! ☺

PS...I haven't made my bed in over a week...even though my kids are required to make theirs up every day. Wouldn't want them to develop my nasty habit. ;o)

I hear you! It's a case of grabbing any spare second around here too. But the chair does look gorgeous.

ITs beautiful Claire. I'm trying to get the courage up to cover a stool, I'm not sure where to start.
