I found out my last handmade Christmas present made it's way to the recipient today so I can now post photos of what I managed to paint the week before my trip to MI.
I began making nanny chairs along with matching baby quilts about 6 years ago. The first two recipients were my nieces Christy and Carrie. The baby quilts w/matching hand painted "time out chairs" as we nick-named them due to the then popular 'Nannie TV Show' were for their girls Riley and Mya.
Since then I have made I think about 9 sets?? Well my nephew Ryan has a new son Mason and I made the baby quilt and it was given as the shower gift but I still owed them the chair.
So here it is along with a second chair I painted as a surprise Christmas gift for another couple:
|I was in a time crunch so sadly set up shop in my dining room|
|yup my dining room|
|At the same time was working on another chair in my basement work area.|
Notice my sketch book below with my ideas for while I work.
|Mason's chair matches fabric from a baby quilt|
|This is Mason's time out chair completed.|
This is my grand-daughter "Charlotte" on Christmas day trying Mason's chair out
but let me clarify she was NOT in time out ;-)
Next weekend we get to head to PA to see the rest of our grandchildren to celebrate with them a belated Christmas and a Happy New Year (we're baby sitting)….please stay tuned….
