My stool with rush caning...started this in April and finished all but about 2 inches so shamed myself into finishing it Sunday afternoon.  Richard, one of the caning instructors, put the final tack in to hold the cane in place and mixed up shellac and alcohol, equal parts, and I painted that on, carefully dabbing the brush in all the holes to make sure all cane was covered underneath and on top!  Finished this today at ELM and in time too, to make my Photography class!

  1. Thanks, Anita!! Mean a lot coming from YOU!! You are so good at all art!! Peggy has made a snowflake out of the bicone crystals and sold them for $20.00 at the church bazaar in the area. Mary had one today and plans to give it as a present at Christmas.
