Today begins our "Autumn Colors of New England" Launch
with my New England Primitive Gathering group on eBay. This NEPG launch will run for one week.
My design was inspired by a note received from fellow member, Joyce. It was a cute couple of whimsical black cats on an orange background.
I drew a similar single black cat, and embellished the border with some candy corn, and the word "BOO". I punched the design with 6-strand floss over weaver's cloth using a gripper frame and locking hoop.
I soaked it in walnut crystals, to soften the colors, and stitched the design to some black wool, using linen and wool yarn. Four rusty bells are attached to each corner.
This pillow was stuffed with 100% soft sheep's wool and a generous scoop of lavender and measures 6 1/2" x 8".
I will have a very hard time parting with this one!
