if you’ve been following me, you know that i’ve been struggling with thumb pain for about a year. that seems to have subsided (hooray!) so i punched a few things which resulted in an incredible burning pain from my elbow to my wrist. ah, these things are sent to test us, aren’t they ellis?
however, i was able to finish a couple of pieces. one is an antique rug inspiration. here’s the original rug….
i love the muted background and the unexpected red and black highlights, don’t you ellis?
regardless of ellis’s opinion, i did actually finish my adaptation…
usually, when i finish an antique inspired piece i simply turn back the weavers cloth and use it for the backing. this time i backed this piece with ticking and edged it with the same fabric….
and added a pocket, because i love pockets (shouldn’t all clothing have pockets?), and a button to hold an id tag.
the other piece i finished was a little snowman…
these pieces are so fun to make, and they’re so happy! This snowman is also backed with ticking….
and a tiny pocket.
You can see these pieces, and more, at my etsy shop by clicking here.
wishing you some peace in this time of uncertainty.
