My Projects This Week
This week I worked on projects. I got a bunch done
on the cat rug. I never knew that my hand would get so
tired I would not be able to pull one more loop. I am slow
and I think last night I worked on it 3 straight hours. It is fun
and I am enjoying myself. Can you see I am just inching my way
to the face. I have put in and ripped out so many times. I have
cut my wool real thin but it just doesn't look right. I will keep
fooling with it until I get the face to look like a face and not a blob.
I never showed I don't think of my rug that I used
the Oxford Punch Needle on. I steamed it today. I am
getting ready tonight to do the finishing part of it. I am going to
put in in front of the wood stove. At least for a little while.
This was my counted cross stitch I did last week, I finally
put some wool on the back of it and stuffed it and hung
it up. It looks just like I wanted it too.
This was my little practice mat. I drew something on
burlap and tried my hand at this and I wanted to try
finishing one because I had never done that so I figured
that if I had a little project to start on it would be practice not
to mention, the steaming and every thing to get one finished.
I also wanted to do one in a day to try and make myself faster
I just thought I would share this today. I have a cold and my brain
I hope you have a nice weekend and a break before this next storm
hits next week.
