I loved it so much I did my first bidding on Ebay & got one from Austin Texas, it should arrive in two weeks & I'm calling it my Merry Christmas gift.
So from Rug Hooking to Sewing...
This wallhanging is for Bill's library/office in the new addition next spring.
Parisian Essence Painting
Remember the rabbit I made last Easter...well I went to make her a new outfit for the fall and noticed just how pale she looked. Then I had an idea, I'm going to give her colour by painting her in the new technique that I had just discovered a couple of months back! I had a jar already made up & the recipe to paint is 1 cup of hot water with 2 tablespoons of Parisian Essence. The recipe in is an older post on how to make it. It's very easy but time consuming, about 2 1/2 hours.
I've got a pattern for bloomers & a dress with pockets that hold 3 baby rabbits. It's a vintage McCalls pattern that I picked up last year when q our fellow rug hooker was purging out her old supplies. I think it's going to work for my fall decorating!
I'm decorating for fall & awaiting Bill's arrival this Saturday! He's leaving Hong Kong tonight, then landing in Toronto, then driving to London, then driving here!!
The weather has been so beautiful in northeastern New Brunswick these days, I hope it continues for his one week stay. China was so hot & humid for him & the air conditioner was broke in his office there. My poor guy.
I know he's going to love it here!
Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
Have a great week and enjoy the long weekend with Labour Day!
I know I will!! ;-)
