I want to thank all of you who have wrote me or responded here for the wonderful compliments. LOL, its a real ego trip in our own little world. The chair will be put together this week sometime, then I will post the finished piece. I sure hope who wins it in the silent auction realizes just how much work is in it. This is to be auctioned the 15th of April at a Spring Gala Ball. A black tie affair. From what I have heard there is usually 500 or so in attendance. LOL, won't be us......my husband refuses to buy a black tie!
