I managed to put together a pillow over the weekend using my finished Friends and Neighbors punch needle. For the front of the pillow I left the weavers cloth, nicely stained, in its as-is condition. For the back, I used a piece of my favorite plaid wool.
I stuffed the pillow with lumpy snips and scraps and used a fraktur inspired punch needle as a patch on the back.
Then, I tried to get some work done on my rug…
Lilly had other plans, however.
She felt that my time would be better spent throwing wool puffs for her to catch than hooking wooly worms.
She’s very persuasive and difficult to resist!
However, she did allow me to hook around her, so I got a few rows done…
Despairing of finishing my rug with Lilly’s assistance, I moved on to an ambitious project which I’m hoping will resemble a weathervane, of sorts, when I’m through.
I took apart an antique dining table and will use some of the bits.
Then, drew this rooster on a large piece of weavers cloth. I wonder if I’ll be able to pull this one off…. Perhaps, if I can find a quiet space ~ sans cats ~ it can be done!
Wishing you the time, ability and personal space to meet all your goals!
