Week 61 Bobbetts Blog black brown and gold.
Well it's week 61, and in all our worst nightmares we never thought we would be in a situation of lockdown and isolation.
The coronavirus has impacted all our lives but in true British spirit we are trying to carry on as best we can.
Tonia and I are not able to meet up so we are working at home on projects,
Posts on our Social media sites have gone over to Daily lockdown pieces, showing work that is available and offering a deposit service on Bespoke pieces.
Tonia has been working on more cushion building a collection of pattern pieces.
Simple two tone colour with detailed tassels added on the corners.
In earthy browns
and black and white.
Simple but striking,
Bought as a collection or separate they will liven up any sofa or occasional chair.
With some designs having reversible designs to get more than just one look for your money.
From £35 a cushion, limited to two of each design made. look out for them being added to B.O.B website and social media soon.
I have been busier than ever this week becoming a main carer for my vulnerable mother and father visiting them twice a day to help their live in carer, so even in these times of social distancing my art and craft time is getting less, so this week I have just done a quick update on an old tyre mirror that I picked up at the recycle centre some weeks ago.
A GT BMX tyre that had been recycled once into a mirror.
Adding a coat of plastikote paint
The gold colour really giving the tyre a new lease of life
What a transformation it reminds me of the sunburst gold mirrors you can get,
This one is far more unique an upcycled recycled piece a Bespoke piece simple but cool just £30 with free delivery in the UK.
