Cant believe that it is over a year since a blog. Mads has been to Scotland and
is back in a few days :) I’m as usual backed up with orders, not that effects my
time out to create.
Now that is the pita that causes the backlog. Honest its scientifically sound.
My DIL Annes birthday was last Friday, no rush there then.
Ok that looks as if there is hope. One feather and it will come down fast.
It is loosely based on an idea I’m playing with on Shaker themed piece done
with a natural edge.
It all started with Shirley wanting a Jam/Marmalade cupboard, this I did in pine
with layers of distress, then painted a sickly green with white interior. Well once
the final coat was on and without door it was declared complete. When I said that
it needed finished, I got the look that says “Do you ever want to buy a new tool
ever again”. So it duly went up on the wall.
This is the plank of French Oak that started it all. If you look at the top right corner
about 12” down there is a knot with a Sigma curve to one side. well to me it looked
like the top of the Shaker Jam Cupboard hanging thingy, I’ll take a picture of it.
Yes disgusting looking, it was worse. Honest I’ll show you.
CRAFT Syndrome Cant Remember a Flipping Thing. That about sums me up. I started out
writing with an idea but it went to pencil and tape land never to see the light of day again.
The problem for me is door no door back no back. How can I bring rustic into the back without
I think I’d best eat then go back into the shop with a full belly and a fresh head, whose I don’t know
but a fresh one.
