queen of the magpies


This is how it all started.



With an old chair


And all of bits of yarn and lace and trim I had stashed away for a someday project.



Well, someday showed up.


A chair fit for the Queen of the Magpies.


Adorned with all her favorite bits and baubles.


The chair was auctioned off at a benefit for  Faulkner County CASA 


I was proud of how it came out 

I sorda hated to let it go


But it was for a good cause


And I suppose if I wanted I could make another one 

But I doubt I will. At least not anytime soon.


It was no small task.


I just sorda figured it out as I went along.
Kinda like my life.


 Colorful. Scrappy. Pieced together. Odds and ends. Unfinished edges. Found bits. Messy. Unexpected. Lovely just the same.

  2. I love it! You really should make another one just for yourself. Maybe a good winter project after the holidays? Go for it!
