Happy Flag Day blog friends!
It's been quite beautiful weather here in the valley
lately and I've been busy as usual.
I finally got to work on some wood and create some make do chairs out of the ladder backs I told you about a few posts back.
This first one I did in black homespun.
I was going to leave the wings off the side, but just wasn't happy with how it looked.
So I took it to the work shop and cut some wings out of pine ~ painted them black and transformed the chair to this. I love how it turned out!
Then I did one in a tapestry print and covered the wings to match.
They are a lot of work, but the out come prim perfect!!
Here's some of the Patriotic I've been making.

Patriotic Eagles ~ design by Kentucky Primitives.
The last couple of evenings I've been drawing and cutting a lot of fall items to start on.
Fall is the biggest selling time ~ at least for me and every year I say I'm going to
get a stock pile of items done, so I'm not so stressed ~ so for me to start on them in June is a big step.
Not to mention the Rt. 11 yard crawl is fast approaching!! Yikes!
It's the second Saturday in August.
I best get busy,
but with these beautiful summer days,
it's so hard not to go outside and play.
Wishing you all a beautiful fun filled weekend!
