This hasn't left any time for crafting. The day before my mother passed I had finished my first Colette Moneta. When I finished it I certainly didn't envisage I'd be wearing it to my Mums funeral. These photos were taken before Mum died.
A couple of friends came over to help with Mams house. After we went for coffee then visited an antique store. They had just got a delivery from an estate which included this sewing chest. They hadn't yet cleaned it up so I got it cheap if I did it up myself. Since these photos were taken, I've treated it for borer, polished the handles and varnished it. I'm not sure of the type of wood, I think it may be walnut.
