fabric: 32ct linen remnant, 1 over 2
I plan on finishing it as a tasseled pyn pillow, it's laying on the backing fabric I've chosen (found at my fave quilt shop, of course!) Does anyone have any special tips for adding tassels neatly?
This is a freebie from Grandma's Kitchen. It's a great blog with wonderful freebies~~check it out! I dyed a remnant piece of linen; I wanted it to look kind of blotchy......so I filled the bowl with hot water, dumped in some tan RIT powder and added my wet linen, and then gave it all a swish. I did not mix the dye first. I really like the way it turned out ;)
I've been adding blogs to Google Reader (thanks Vonna for guiding me away from the frustration of bloglines!) I've got over 200 in my reader and probably have 200 more to add. A very slow process but it'll save me time in the long run, right??? So just want you all to know that I've been reading your blogs as I'm adding them, sorry for the lack of comments. But I should be all caught up and back to commenting soon!!!
