Am truly surprised and honored by the response of people wanting to participate in this Textile Challenge. Some even enjoyed it so much they wanted a second serving, but me thinks my friend Lauren won't be one of them 😁. You did a fantastic job on this beauty despite what you think Lauren.
The finished dimensions of her piece is 12 3/4 X 15 1/2; she used Sari ribbon, woven cotton, paisley, 1 strip of velvet, 2 different wool yarns and an old t-shirt. So you can see the great wool yarn edge better, here is a close up. Also note a random color hooked in at the bottom left. That is exactly what our foremothers would have done when they ran out of the textile they were using for the background. That gives it character and I love it!
Denise finished her Scrappy Cat and asked to do Magdalena's Pup next. Some of the cottons she used in this piece she previouslyl cut to do a quilt; but said she's enjoying it much more in this piece than the quilt that almost was. Sweet looking feline you have there Denise.
Kimm also finished her Hearts in Circles antique adaptation. She stained hers with coffee and said coffee stains darker and faster than tea. But Kimm I think it looks lovely. Maybe you'll try it again in different colors or using tea.
Donna started hers yesterday and is making good headway. She is using quilting cotton, sari ribbon, some yarn and stretch jersey, which, she says Deanne calls 'sexy jersey'.
I've been asked how people are finishing their pieces. I just folded back the linen and tacked down, then did the Betsy Reed style of primitive edge.
This morning I began my normal ritual of searching for Covid vaccine in my area then shocked finding availability at my local Walgreens. Was able to secure an appointment for tomorrow with the 2nd dose in 28 days. A couple hours later received a phone call from Walgreens saying they had 3 pharmacists on duty and did I want to go in today. Heck yeah! So I had my first Pfizer shot today around 1:44 p.m. and will have the second on March 31st.
Happy Hooking and stay safe.
