I guess Alice is on my mind because I have chosen an Alice in Wonderland rug canvas for my project for my 20th YES TWENTITH OFF THE OCEAN rug camp coming up next month in January.
For now let's focus on the fast approaching Christmas holiday. Doesn't it just fly by friends. All the music, merriment - over in a flash. I am dragging and clawing every minute of every day to S L O W things down. Isn't working ...............
I'm happy to show you a few things I finished up in December. This was my duClay EGA Christmas exchange gift. It is With Thy Needle Berry Days at Thistle Down Farm. It is stitched on 36ct PTP Ancient linen with the called for threads. Yes folks I did the finishing myself - I sanded the box - painted the box with a coat of buttermilk paint and then a strawberry colored paint, I sanded the box again according to instructions to make it look aged and then put a coat of wax on it.
Devon's Quiet Corner did the finishing for me . WOW - what a super job Devon did on my finish. It was stitched on the called for R&R Winter Brew with the threads from the kit. The wool was from my rug hooking stash.
I did the finishing myself - that black ribbon doesn't show very well but it's ruched ribbon all around the edge. Mounted on a metal stand.
Well dear friends - I hope you all have been having a wonderful holiday season however you celebrate. I wish you lots of time to spend however you wish thru the holiday season. If I don't make it back here again - 2018 has been a year full of blessings, tragedies for many, losses and joys.
Please leave me a comment - I do read them all - Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night
