Everything that moves me

I try to DIY and it worked out fine.

A little old chair, just DIY with a new cover of light blue crepe satin, something I had in my stash, unfortualy it has some colour changes in it, but that is okay for me. Age shows and I can tell!
What counts: It looks fresh. The cushion is also a crepte satin, but a different color. "Purple"
I made two of them and look a little different than on the picture, because I have put a thick ribbon around the edges. I hope they will last a few years, because all the handling with the staples is not so easy for me anymore and this time I needed som help from my hubby.
When I watched TV about Island, Wow it got me, especially the green collors of nature and the vide views. So I made adrawing on cardboard, cut it in pieces and now I will find some good material, to made a textile art from it.
This time I will work a little rougher, that is not easy for me, but I will give it a try.
Also this week I made a paper bird. I had a lot of fun making this little piece, just folding and glueing some paperbits together.
My funny bird.
He will be intelligent because it is made
from Sudoku
So this is what I did for the last two weeks. I will be happy, if You make some comments.
