Lazy Sunday

We had a decent weather here in Downunder.
I did landry a load after load, while washing machine is working hard. I did play with my camera, I have my semi-professional camera for last 2 years but hardly used since its heavy. I love my small digital camera in my bag. I played with my big camera today.

How was your Sunday?

Today, one of my student finished her chair.
It came out very nice, even my hubby approved

She used French Toile Fabric as an accent piece at the front of the chair.

back of the chair and the seat cushion was plain linen style fabric.

This was the chair before.
