I made this design into a sleeve that goes around a small quilted pillow. I had fabric left form the shams I made many years ago. So I was able to match the fabrics. I guess it pays to never throw out any fabric! The design is by Homespun Elegance.
Sorry the little brass star is crooked!! I wanted to show the quilted pillow. It looks much more primitive than the photo shows. In fact, the red is much more of a barn red. Not the best day for taking pictures if you want the true color.
If you remember, I found this wonderful little frame at an antique shop for very little money right around Halloween time. I put the witch silhouette in the frame in October. It is solid walnut and I just love it.
Here is my current project. It is the Margaret Cottam Sampler.(Sorry for the wrinkles) It is by La-D-Da and I believe it came out as a mystery sampler a few years ago. The chart is in 3 parts. The linen I am using is Vintage Sand Dune 32 ct. by Lakeside Linens. I love the big flower border. So very happy it matched!!!!!!!!
The chart called for WDW Baked Apple for the flowers. I did not like the color as well as this GA color called Country Redwood. The ladies at the shop said it was one of the newer colors. If you like a barn red, you will love this color. It is quite variegated.
I have really enjoyed all your blogs and seeing all the many wonderful Christmas decorations and the Christmas stitching you have done. Thanks for joining me today.
