I pinned this Cross Stitch Chair by My Poppet a little while ago, maybe I even blogged it. I think it's such a great idea. We've got a couple of chairs with this kind of weave at home - I'd love to find the time to try it. Another thing on my list for when Gus starts school in September!
I also spotted this Etna Daybed on the Habitat website. It's also doable if you have an old bench and some lovely twine. Please can somebody try it so we can all coo at your cleverness. Thanks very much!
