I know, two posts in the course of a few days is unusual for me. With all my recent purchases I started feeling sorry for my older, unstitched charts, so I pulled one out, not expecting to finish before my new, irresistible goodies came in the mail...but my DS's baseball schedule this week consisted of --practice, game, practice, day off, and game, which gave me about 9 hours with my butt planted firmly in a folding chair, and therefore I am showing off my latest (unironed) finish. This is Pennsylvania Pillowe from
Notforgotten Farm, done mostly with the recommended threads on natural linen, except for the black for which I substituted an overdyed. Question: should I try to "age" this by dabbing a tea bag or splashing a little coffee on it, or leave it as it is? I kinda want to try but I am afraid that the black will bleed horribly and ruin it. Opinions anyone?
I have nothing else to show of my own, but DD got out her sock animal book again and whipped up this cute little squirrel. I think this is her best animal yet. She told me that his nuts are detatchable so I asked if he was married, lol.
That's it for now. Happy Spring everyone!
