My big comfy chair that I bought 25 years ago is starting to look its age. I've considered trying to reupholster it myself, but can't seem to get motivated. Lucky for me a young woman in town has started an upholstery business and I'd rather she do it. I have some very heavy weight hemp fabric in two different weaves, a herringbone and nubby almost basketweave. I've bought a piece of printed home dec fabric and have decided to dye the hemp to go with it. I've done samples that are close enough for me.
The hemp fabric frays a lot, so I had to dig out the serger and do the edges. Yesterday I did the mocha color and I'm happy with it.
Today the blue is in the dye bath, almost ready for rinsing.
The feral kittens are about three weeks old now, eyes are open and they are moving around more, but still sleep huddled up together.
