Latest finish...which is LATE!



I'm embarrassed to even post, it has been so long!  Life gets more hectic every year...thought retirement would slow the pace down, but it HASN'T!!  Our rug hooking group meets twice each month and then I've been attending a gathering called "Sit 'n Stitch" at our local library two days each month also.  Combine that with grand children's activities, going to see my Mom each week and all the other business of life---hectic!!

I finished this pillow a few days AFTER Christmas and I like the result.  I first put it on a candlestick and it was a 3D tree, but didn't like the way it looked, so I removed the candlestick and voila! a pillow!

It is hooked from an Old Tattered Flag pattern with #8 cut wool strips and a few embellishments...red sari silk ribbon as a garland on the bottom....rust wire star garland (with a little gold acrylic paint wash), some silver yarn as a garland in the middle and some red metal bells on the top section.  On top is another rusty star which I also washed with the gold acrylic paint.  It is stuffed with wool (strips that were left over) which resulted in a hefty weight.  It measures 21 1/2" X 13".

I still haven't forgotten that I was going to post pics of some antiques I have found, but will have to do that another day...on my way to my grandson's hockey game followed by a basketball game and then out for pizza for his birthday!

Have a great weekend!
