Done But the Binding

I almost named my post The Fat Lady Sings but since it isn't bound yet couldn't honestly say it was completely done.  This is what my Mache' Jack-O-Lanterns look like now and am happier with it than the before.

Now.
Here's the before.
Some of the changes I made may be obvious to the viewer but just in case here they are:

~ used different orange wool on right Jack in various places
~ changed right eye on the right Jack
~ changed mouth on the right Jack
~ put a thin line above teeth on left Jack

I'm happier now and can concentrate better on my commission rug from which I took a mini-break.  Now I have two pieces which need binding and I'll take one with me to the doctor's office tomorrow to keep me occupied while sitting in the waiting room.  Since neither is a huge rug either would be convenient to carry in my basket.  If you are interested in purchasing the Mache' Jack-O-Lanterns pattern on linen (measures 14 1/2" x 25 1/2") write me HERE.

Have a great Monday and hope your whole week is magnifico!

  2. The changes made a big difference, the lighter shades separate him and nice highlight and I do like this mouth better.

  3. WONDERFUL!!!
    Now get busy on your commission piece and if you need another rug or two to bind, I would be more than happy to accommodate.

  6. Happy Jacks!!! Nicely done. The contrast edge on Jack on the right is just what it needed. What a lovely Halloween piece.
