Our folding stool also had its fabric give way while camping in Taminick last october, so I used another fabric to recover that chair. The only difference between my work and the originals is that I sewed all the trims down, instead of using fabric glue. I believe that this gave me a far better result.

Now on a more fun note, I have also been undertaking multiple projects to keep my motivation up. One project, that I have just completed was my first 1850/60s cap. I used the lace from an oval doily and some spare silk and ribbons to create this cap. It was fun and interesting for my first try.
