The owner has collected and paid for her chair - result! We are off to Dorset for the weekend and the forecast is rain. I am still not getting proper typing etc. from this page so blogging has become somewhat of a chore: sorry!
The autumn is well and truly upon us: we have finally finished the runner beans and are deluged with apples instead, and upholstery classes have begun again. My latest piece is a commision which will cover the materials and tuition, so I get to learn for free and the owner gets her chair revamped. Youngest is now a sixth former with a lengthy reading list and Eldest is back in Oxford though not quite back at university yet - we deliver the rest of her stuff when she moves back into hall next week, always assuming I've found and packed her requirements!
