I need an emphathetic work chair that speaks of my textile meanderings. Noble but slightly scruffy, suitable for thinking moments and flights of fancy, suitable also for cups of coffee and conversations.

I fell in love with my chair on the roadside, I fastened its loose bits together with cable ties, reinforced it with irrigation hose, then bandaged its rusty bits.  As you can see I have started to knit its cover.  Its going to have lots of green and brown to remind me that the garden is my other thinking space.  The wonky umbrella will be part of it too.

It will be a noble chair!  Note the broad flat arms for resting books, knitting, quilting frames and coffee cups!
