On our recent trip to Bayfield I snapped these photos of a cat and dog scarecrow on a front porch. I thought they were adorable and must have been a lot of work to make! I have a thing for scare crows I guess!
Thank-you all from the bottom of my heart for your sweet comments on my last post! It warms my heart how so many of you understand and show so much concern for a fellow blogger! A wonderful circle of friends you are! I had some questions about the width of the strips on the little oval mat and the size of it. Lauren and Kathy(Woolfind), the strips are from 1/2 inche to 3/4 inches wide. I usually tear a piece of wool 1 inch wide and then tear that in half. It's not an exact science in fact a slight variation gives the rug a more primitive look. Some wools don't rip very easy when you are trying to tear a one inch piece in two, so those types of wools you will have to cut by hand. I forgot to measure the rug before I gave it to Sue but I think it was about 16 inches long by about 11 inches wide. If you are reading this Sue, perhaps you could comment with the measurements. We'll see how good of a guesser I am! LOL
Corinne, For the pattern I just started at the outside and kept changing strips every few inches(vary that too) and hooked around the oval. It went pretty quick with the wide strips.
Sharon(Moosecraft), about the little white pumpkin. Isn't he a quirky little guy? A couple of years ago I found him in two different sizes at a primitive shop about 15 miles from my house called Country Cabin. I went back to purchase more and she had sold out. She has promised to try and get them again for next year. I have seen them in orange on some primitive websites but haven't seen the white ones. I was inspired to design a little mat based on this white JOL for my very first post when I started blogging. Click HERE to read it. It's kind of funny any way! I was so scared to click the publish button...... Now look at me, can't shut me up!! LOL
