Victorian Memories Chaise Lounge finis

Victorian Memories Chaise Lounge - design by Cat's Whiskers Design Studio
Recommended 32 count Belfast Baby Lotion
Recommended Dinky-Dyes Silks
Finished by me :-)
I finished off my chaise lounge last night while watching 24. In terms of overall finishing I found this one to be the easiest so far. I dated it by mistake '09. But I wasn't about to re-stitch it. I just wanted it done at that point.

Here are my three chairs in the collection all together. I think they look really cute when I put them together on my book shelves.

Here is a photo of the new release called La Roseraie that is an exclusive to a store in Perth, Western Australia. I like it and I think I'll have to find a way to get it.

Yesterday was a great mail day - poor Miss Annie's hair finally arrived so I'll be able to fix her this weekend. My brand spanking new rug hook arrived and so did the two books I ordered. Over the weekend I purchased a big quilting frame and now all I need is my first project to arrive. I went with a simple smallish pre-cut kit. I can't wait to start on my first rug!

I love that new chair, I have the other two in my to do pile. Do you know which shop in Oz is going to be selling this?

Deb said...

Such a wonderful finish Margie! I absolutely love it! All three of your pieces look wonderful together. And I can see why you would want La Roseraie - it would look beautiful with the ones you've already mage. Congratulations on such a great finish!

Margaret said...

Oh Margie! Your new chaise is just perfect! Your finishing is amazing! I just love the three chairs all together -- you should send a picture to the designer (Janie?) and maybe she'll be nice and send you the exclusive kit or something!

That's exciting about getting Annie's hair and the first pieces of your rug hooking necessaries. I'm looking forward to following you in your learning process. Maybe you'll inspire me to go for it too!

Nicki said...

That's just wonderful! You did such a good job finishing it - it looks amazing :D

Michelle said...

Congrats on finishing your chaise! It looks amazing. And how sweet to have it grouped with your two finished chairs. I agree, you need that Australian chair too!!

Annemiek said...

It is stunning and I absolutely love your collection. The finishing is what puts me off, I am afraid I will never get that done.

Theresa said...

OMG!!!! This is sooooo pretty!!!!! Love your chaise lounge!!! And all your chairs look so nice together!!!!

Kelly said...

The chaise looks great with the chairs. The one from Australia is a nice design. It looks like the seat opens which is cool.

woolwoman said...

Stunning finish Margie - and a most impressive grouping of the 3 but I think you need to pursue getting the exclusive one too - I'm sure they'd be happy to post one to you. OK - why no photo of your new hook? Please post all your hooking adventures - I'm anxious to hear all about how it goes. Melody

Major Kudos!!!! These are so awesome, but I am afraid to attempt. You've done such a beautiful job. Thanks for sharing these!

cathymk said...

I live in Perth and need an excuse to go to the shop (it's only been open a few months), would you like me to investigate this for you?

Lindsay said...

Gorgeous. Yours is the first one I've seen finished and makes me all the more impatient for mine to get here.
Love the latest one, shame I don't live in Oz

corinna said...

you are amazing
those chairs are so sweet...
i hope you can attain your australian chair, it belongs with the others

always fun to see your work

Von said...

Simply amazing finishing! I'm intimidated by a simple stuffed ornament finish. :D

MyLifesAStitch said...

Love it! You do such a great job with these, Margie!

Sandra said...

Well done on your wonderful assembly. These chairs etc are not my cup of tea at all, but they look really cute together and I agree you should try and get the new one. Maybe a reader can help.

linenstitcher2 said...

I'm in awe of your finishes!! Your chair collection is FABULOUS!! What a marvelous grouping they make. If I thought there was any chance I do the finishing, I'd have to stitch these, but I know I'd stitch them, then leave them in a drawer.

Kudos to you for stitching AND finishing this set. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

omashee aka Barb said...

Girl, where do you find the time? You are such a beautiful stitcher & finisher. Now I hear you're hooking rugs and quilting!!! WOW Love the chaise, I think, even better than the chairs (and I really love those)! Please send me some energy and expertise. I promise to send 'La Roseraie' in return.

Daffycat said...

Awesome finishing, Margie! It turned out so perfectly cute. I just love the little bolster pillow fob!

Best of luck finding the new pattern!

Karoline said...

It's stunning Margie, congratulations

zoomcity said...

Beautiful job, congratulations! I'm glad to hear this piece wasn't as difficult as the chairs.

Terri said...

They are beautiful. I love them. :)
