Doing my usual 'scatter gun' approach to projects, I thought I'd make a few things to go in to the study, as I needed a break from the bedroom!
When I start a room, I usually start with an object, a piece of furniture, or more often, a painting. Then I work 'backwards' collecting other pieces that will complement it. This painting jumped out at me, and although she may be a little grand for Daviot House, I really wanted to include it.
I put it in a dark frame, and mod podged the card, so make it look more like canvas.
Then, although I have a lot of sewing projects on the go already, I started to make a small rug in needlepoint to go with her.
I think they go very nicely with the Queen Anne chair ( I will eventually have two!), and are a welcome break from the femininity of the bedroom!
