Buttermilk Pitcher chairpad finish ~

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....
well, it was warm enough yesterday for me to finish hooking up my little
Buttermilk Pitcher chairpad
while enjoying the warm breeze & sunshine ~

I hooked the background using an almost-blue lavender color...
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 ~

...yes, it's a little wonky & off-centered,
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 ~
blessings from the farm,
