Soggy Sunday ~

Working on a couple of items for the Gathering of Primitive Friends Show
 here at the farm in September {20th to be exact} ~ 

...I cannot believe it is a month away (less than even!)

needle and thread have been busy ~
so has wool….


love the colors

using my usual simple whip-stitch 
to edge these onto the velvet backing ~
I prefer this look to the blanket-stitch….
(Joan is sighing right about now)

I am using coordinating and contrasting thread colors for this project
{that will soon cover a box}

 just a more primitive look to me…
not that I dislike the look of a nice blanket stitched edge,
I just prefer this 'lighter' look of the thread
 instead of the heavier pearl-cotton usually used for penny-rug or wool appliqué.

love my old blue calico quilts and how the blue off-sets the oranges in my project :)

and here She is again ~
she will be painted today
{after finally drying in the oven for a bit}
the humidity here has been a bugger…

'She' is awaiting her final touches...

 you can see her actual size a little better now, 
...with me holding her.

can't wait to bring her to life….

I'll be choosing her glass eyes too,
'witch' color they will be?

...the better to see you with my dear….

I'll post more photos of her later this evening.

Have a relaxing Sunday my sweet Friends,
* Blessed be *
