Out of Africa

A very unusual patient! This chair has just arrived in the workshop.

It's an African chieftain chair and both arm uprights have this same head carved on the top.....he looks a bit grumpy! The weave on the seat is something very different, it is a fairly standard close weave in a fine cord but it is finished off with a crocheted edge. That will take me back to my childhood, I haven't done any crocheting for years, but I'll enjoy it - memories of my Grandmother teaching me when I was 7 or so.
