Good Old Fashioned Handwork...

there's nothing that pleases me more...
than old fashioned handwork.
sitting quietly and letting my hands work for themselves,
and of course, seeing the finished product!
this is a little wool mat that i handstitched from beautiful black and red wools...
the simple heart and hand motifs and colors remind me of
the old PA German wool rugs of the late 1800's.
it measures 11 1/2" x 13" and is backed with the same red wool...
i quilted the back and front together with linen thread in a diagonal
direction and then whipped the edges together.
I'll be listing this on ebay this evening, and working on more for my shows..
Hoping your day is filled with sunshine and stitches!!!
Blessed be, my Friends~

Hello Lori. I had to stop and tell you how much I love your little mat. Love the brown wool and the hearts remind me of my extensive heart cookie cutter collection. Good luck with your auction.
