First things first…as many of you may know already, Google Reader will be no-more as of July 1st. If you currently read this or any other blog on Google Reader you’ll need to sign up with a new service so you can continue to stay up to date with all your daily reads. Feedly and Bloglovin’ are two free readers that have options for easily transferring all your subscriptions. May as well do it now, right?! If you currently get updates via e-mail, nothing will change. My fellow Creative Team member at I Heart Naptime, Talitha of Love, Pomegranate House, wrote a great summary of these two options. You can see it here.
You might remember I made a chair for my other niece, Lily, back in October.
Lily’s was the first one I ever made from the frame up and I knew all along that the upside was that she got my first chair, and the downside was that she also got all the mistakes I made my first time. The arms were a little wide for the scale of the chair and stuck out a bit oddly in the back. The frame was made of pine, which was a little too soft, and needed lots of unforeseen reinforcement.
So I corrected all those mistakes this time around, changed the style a bit, and overall really love how Tory’s chair came out. I still have a few things I’ll tweak for my next chair, but on the whole, I feel like I’m getting this whole thing down!
