The last couple days I've been test driving my new Acadian Frame. It is beautifully made with a nice patina (mine is Cherry wood), swivels 180* and tilts forward and backward. The frame measures 15" x 21" and really like the longer length as it requires less movement of the design. The grippers really grip and so far haven't missed using the Snapdragon.
I've been hoping to get this rug finished so that I can move onto the UFO sheep which was started just before Cape May rug camp this past September. Since both of these were started in 2015 really really wanted them finished in the same year. A Day in the Country might be finished in 2015 but guess the sheep will have a date of 2016 on it.
Since this rug won't be finished by tomorrow to show more progress, will post some pictures of antique rugs recently found on the internet.
Seems that with my lack of posting daily I've lost a couple followers....sad. Unfortunately I take it to heart and wonder what I may have said (or didn't) to make someone 'UN-friend' me.
It takes some effort to go remove your name from someone's blog. I follow so many folks that I wouldn't know where to go to remove my name if I wanted to (which I don't). Yeah, I do wish some of my favorite blogs would post more often but realize life gets in the way, particularly this time of the year ~ but no reason for me to remove my name as a follower.
Enjoy your weekend baking, cooking, wrapping gifts or whatever it is you're busy doing to prepare for Christmas.
