Well, knowing how much I love these rusted old metal wind directionals, my sons Joshua and Trevor and my lovely daughter in law Hannah knew exactly where this rusty ol' tin beauty belonged ....WITH ME !!!
When Hannah and Josh moved in to their new home, while walking in the field behind their house, Trevor and Josh found this weathervane laying in the weeds...I don't think it is really old, the curly metal close to the bottom isn't something that looks antique. It's missing the S and W , and hubby said he might know of someone at work that can cut some on a plasma cutter out of sheet metal, but even if he doesn't I love it ...lol....I was so happy when they gave it to me at their housewarming Memorial Day Picnic Saturday !!They jokingly said it was a belated Mother's Day gift ( which they all pitched in a got me allready)....but hey, I'll take it whatever you wanna call it ...lol
So, now that everyone knows that I love weathervanes, you can understand why I chose to do my whale drawing from my Americana FolkThyme Doodle Booklet into a weathervane.
In fact, I used that image to make up a new fabric design ....
I did up the log cabin doodle in red and blue background and tan for the line drawing to go with design with the tan background I allready had.
I have pictures of some wonderful rugs by more talented ladies using some of my designs...
