Mums the word!

Re-upholstered 1950s chair

Happy mothers day to all those lovely mums out there.  I know quite a number of new mums and it’s no mean feat becoming a mum for the first time so well done to you all, hope you are being spoilt rotten by the family.  Unfortunately my mum is poorly today with a horrid cold so I’m going to take her a yummy Chinese take-away as a treat for tea tonight.   Anyway, I wanted to share some of my mums amazing talent with you.  She is very crafty too but her specialities are knitting and anything fabric related.  She has been doing a re-upholstery night class for the last few years and recently re-upholstered an old chair for us that belonged to my Grandpa and Grandma many years ago (her parents).  I think the frame is a sort of 1950s style and we wanted something that would match our colourful curtains.  The finished chair is just amazing, we love it and it’ll be a welcome addition when I have the girls over for craft club…one of us always ends up sitting on the floor!
