I just couldn't resist! With only some background to complete on my firescreen, this weekend I couldn't help doing the embroidered chippendale settee cover.
The coral pink silk, the red roses and the turquoise blue borders
A pair of small embroidery scissors for scale
The colours are really vibrant against the dark wood
This photo reminds me to start planning the rug (and replace my broken daylight lamp!)
A little glimpse into the parlour on a Winter's evening, with lovely warm candle glow
