Rainy Day Chair-and-a-Half Part I

The Story of a Chair-and-a-Half

This chair was on a neighbors lawn....in the rain...with this sign on it!
 The NVO thinks I have gone and lost it. 
(The plot that is! That's for you Linda!)
Finally that old truck we purchased came in handy. ;-)

The next day it did not rain so I took it apart and
washed the covers in the washing machine,

dried them at the fireplace,
 scrubbed the main part of the chair outside with the hose, a bucket of hot soapy water
and check it out:
It's been draped with the Daisy Blanket from this post.

But these are not the final plans for this chair.
Stay tuned for the biggest crochet project ever!

Can you guess what that might be?
(No roses involved.)

This makes me so happy!!!
 Thank you dear neighbor people!

  4. Do the neighbours know you have taken the chair Astri ? it would be fun to show them the chair once you have finished with it they will be so sorry that they have thrown it away. Looking forward to seeing it's make over, it's fun to loose the plot once in a while. :) xx

    1. Hello my "plot losing" friend! No, I do not think they know I took the chair unless they watched us out the window. ;-) I have thought it would be fun to knock on their door one day and let them know about the chair's new life. I think they would be pleased to know it is being loved.

  6. Sure doesn't look like there's anything wrong with it. From the sounds of it, you're gonna make a mighty big chair cover. Fun!
