it is COLD here this morning!!!
we are not used to cold, since it's been SO unseasonably warm here as-of-late.
I sure hope the cold overnight temps don't kill any of the young & tender blooms that are open on our pear trees, lilacs bushes & wisteria vines...*sigh* ~ such crazy weather....
Buttermilk Pitcher chairpad
while enjoying the warm breeze & sunshine ~
but of course I had to mix in some brown & indigo repro Civil War era cotton calicos as well...
Then I decided to add a braided wool border in
after finishing with twill tape...
even though I tend to work very primitively, I always finish my work neat & tidy.
here is a close-up of the pad, you can see in the pitcher itself I used almost 7 different shades of wool, then added in strips of ripped osnaburg, homespun & cotton calicos...
I like the way this little chairpad looks on my antique chamberpot chair !!!
I enjoyed hooking this up ~ it was a quick hook and was fun to add the different fabrics...
it will be offered as a full-size pattern in my Etsy shop today ~
but so am I !
I guess my work really does reflect that, no? :)))
Next, I'll begin hooking some smaller purses using unique items for handles!!!
(I'm very excited about showing you this, so stay tuned!)
Have a beautifully creative day, my Friends ~
