Working on Wool Applique runner pattern and more....
I've been working since Sunday on a wool applique pattern for a runner..It's called "Twas The Night Before Christmas " ( not very original ,I know ). Now, I added the year 1822 because that is when the story(poem actually) was first written, it was published in a New York newspaper under the title "A Visit from St. Nicholas" It wasn't until 1844 that it was credited publicly to Clement C. Moore , when it was included in an anthology of his works.... So...learn something new everyday huh?...lol
I snapped some pics while I was arranging the pieces for placement, and still need to stitch it together then, finish writing out the pattern. It can easily be done up as a hooked rug, punch needle piece or a stitchery also.
and...Yesterday I recruited my 18 year old daughter to paint a bench that hubby had made me years ago. The Hunter Green and natural wood was just soooo country 80's and 90's ....lol...I still have to sand down, distress and go over with a stain....
Now....I am having a Christmas Giveaway !!! I'll post pics tomorrow of the goodies and rules to be entered.....For now, have a super dee duperty great evening !!
