Needlepoint Stitching Chair
My ANG chapter has decided to make chairs, everyone is designing their own, I couldn't wait to make mine.
The stitching is all done on congress cloth with size 8 DMC perle cotton and floss #800. I crocheted the doily for the back and the rug is a Hardanger piece I made several years ago, but I am thinking about a new rug now.
This was a fun project, the base is 2 X 3 from Sudberry House. The accessories are from Idee Creation, I purchased these at L'alguille en fete in Paris a couple years ago. Not knowing what I was going to do with them until I finished my chair.
I have to say the Royal School of Needlework box making Diploma course was very helpful in figuring this out. Things I learned - measure twice and measure a couple more times, take my time to do the finishing and think outside the box.
