You are all too kind.
Here's the deal.
It's an easy, easy project. I bought my chenille squares a few years back, but you can find them on Ebay, and on Etsy. They are usually sold in batches, of 20 to 36. My squares were only 4" squares, but they come in 6" squares. I used 121 of the 4" squares. I simply strip sewed them together........yup, that easy.
Then I had some natural, cotton batting, and I bought some dainty cotton fabric for the backing, put the three together, and used some 8/2 cotton to tie the three together in random places.
So cheap, it's not, but gorgeous, and pretty darn easy, it's both of those.
I may buy some more and make another one........maybe I'll make a QUEEN size one.
Now there's a thought.
Got the sectional beam on the AVL, wound and ready.
It was half threaded when I left the studio today. I can't wait to get it up and running. I am doing 16 harness twill dish towels. Someone asked me: "Aren't you sick of dish towels, yet?"
The answer is no.
I have mentioned before how I have made so many dear friends through this blog.
It's a gift that keeps on making me happy.
The other day, a package came.
It had a return address, but didn't say from WHO at that return address.
I opened it to find a beautiful and familiar photograph, put on canvas.
So I googled the address, and found it was a business that puts photos on canvas. Hmm. Then the light bulb went off.
Who else loves Maine as much as I do?
Why Kate, over at Chronicles of a Country Girl that's who.
So I toddled on over to her blog, and typed in Easy Canvas Prints in the little search window up on the left. And just as I suspected, there was an old post of hers recommending them.
I did, that's who.
I put the picture in the back bedroom, the biggest one, in the studio, my favorite bedroom. I weave in there sometimes, on my Macomber. And now I can look up and see Sand Beach, and wish I was there.
Thanks, Kate. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
In case you're all wondering what L is up to these days, she's weaving on the Cranbrook.
Could I get a little attention around here?
