take a seat

I can't even remember when I bought this chair - long before we had Glenn, I think. Not even sure if I found it on spring clean up day(when everyone puts junk on the curb that they can't fit in a garbage can) or if I bought it at the Kane County Flea Market(I used to be a regular there - until we ran out of room in the house). I refinished it not long after buying it and for quite awhile it had a different pad on it. You can see that it didn't last because this is how the chair looked when we moved to this house over 4 years ago.

The needlepoint is from a Beatrix Potter needlework book I have and was completed before Glenn was born. It waited for years to get used. I had all the pieces ready for this, just not the motivation to drag out the scroll saw and cut the wood to fit the space properly. So when did I finally get around to this? In the middle of the Christmas craziness - when I should have been doing plenty of other things.

It makes for a lovely desk chair in the living room.

And yet another reason to never let you into my house.
