Well, Ladies and more Ladies, I finished my chair. The stain is dry, ever stitch is sewn and in place. I have to say that it was a complete success, and a wonderful thing to wake up to on my 23rd birthday. I don't feel any different whatsoever. My sister, who is turning 27 this year, says it doesn't really hit you till your late twenties. We'll see. For now, it is a happy day.
