Chairs in the making

Don't know when I will get these completely finished. Here is a quick look at the beginnings of some chairs for the kids Barbies.

They are cut from a postage tube that Tim was kind enough to give me with the comment "Can you make something with this?" As soon as I saw it, I saw chairs. I scribbled the shape onto the tube as I went. Should have used pencil because the paint I have put on them isn't thick enough to cover the pen. Grrr.

I am hoping that the chairs won't look like toilets when they are done. I have made little cushions for the seats and have painted them but I am not happy with the colour. I'd really like to use some dark wood grain contact on them but I haven't got any. I will post some pictures when they are done.

I have made some more rooms for the Barbie house too. It looks pretty cool. I will post that soon. Esther and Ellamay start back at school next week (HOORAY) so I hope to get back to my stitching and what not.
