I haven't got much done in the way of quilting or sewing lately, but I am trying to work a few minutes a day on this penny rug.
I am always amazed how much you can get done in just a short time. An added bonus is that sewing and quilting is a great stress reliever for me. Some people go to a spa - me, I just need a needle and thread or a sewing machine.
This pattern is called 'Pineapple Grove' by 'Threads That Bind' . I bought this as a kit last year from 'Cottage Herbs' in Berwick, Maine. The hand dyed wools are just luscious.
On a different note, I bought this 'Rustoleum' paint at 'Lowes' today and wanted to give it a try on this oil lantern that I had bought at Walmart for $5.
A quick spray of the can and this is what I ended up with.
Much better! I used this lantern in my 'Nesting Box' from a previous post mainly because it fit the space, but knew that it was not prim enough for my taste. I feel much better about it now.
Until next time ~ Suzanne.
