|Reaching for the sun!!|
|New wall piece for the living room|
|New redware plate chair pads coming soon!!!|
Mom had wanted me to design a rooster for her. I just love this guy. The colors are quite vibrant, I always tend to go darker and more muted, but I do love him.
I have started another rug called "floating stars". It is a table runner and has five big blue stars. I wanted to do a hit or miss background with reds and whites, but only had three compatible reds. So I chose three off whites and started hooking. This is the pattern that developed and I must say, I like the look, kind of like a flowing flag. It's kind of mundane hooking though so I am only picking it up in between other projects.
I had this really neat antique piece in the barn that I've been wanting to do something with and when I had a spot on the wall open up I thought of it. So, I painted it and the heavily antiqued it. I found this cute little penny rug at a shop nearby and loved the mustard background that matches my walls perfectly and fit in the little space of the piece. Threw in a grapevine star on top and a sprig of berries hanging on the bottom. I just love it. If you see a neat piece, cheap, don't pass it by. Even if you don't know what your going to do with it at the time, chances are you will find a use for it eventually.
And then, since spring is right around the corner I wanted to show this picture of a shamrock plant that our good friend Corrine brought us last week. The flowers only open up during the day and if I didn't know better, I'd say these guys are just reaching for the sun. Little do they know that yea it's sunny, but only in the 30's outside.
Well, off to do some painting....until next time......
