The weather’s not the only thing HOT around here…Seattle Judy has turned into a sewing fiend! You can find her most days hand stitching in the cooler comfort of the shade from her oleander hedge, sipping her iced coffee and stitching away!
I have got to admit with the temperature now well into the 90Fs (32C+) that’s what I have been doing…that and floating around the pool! I don’t do heat very well…:o}
This little table mat turned our wonderful…how could it not?!
…just LOOK at those Civil War fabrics!!
BUT…it’s her Frosty Mugs that REALLY got my attention…LOVE this FUN mat/wall hanging!
Are these not the CUTEST guys EVER…and I swear, just bringing them out sent the temperature plummeting! (I wish..:)
When Dorr’s had their sale on these kits we all ordered one…Judy, Sandy, Claire and I…how could we not, they were ONLY $25 each (pattern was included!!)
A kit is the only way to make something like this because it is too difficult to find all these different textured white neutrals!
Man…I love this long (401/2”) beauty!!
The wool that was sent is nothing but Dorr’s finest…soft and thick and the perfect colours!
HEY, I just checked Dorr’s site and they still have these long wall hangings kits on for $25!! It’s a steal as all the other shops sell the kits for at least $50!!
Now Dorr’s sends a huge piece of gorgeous red plaid backing for the runner…but the four of us decided why waste such a beautiful huge piece of red wool. We decided to back it with cotton and finish it off with a binding and save the red for another project!! Brilliant!
While looking at Primitive Gathering’s version of this runner at Road to California we noticed that that’s exactly how they finished it off…with cotton….and their kit was $60 …with no big piece of red wool!
So there you have it…that’s my deal for today!
Thanks Judy, for sharing your masterpieces! It’s hard (impossible) to keep up with you!!
Have a Wicked Wednesday and Happy Stitching!~P
