I have been working on a new project this week and finished it today.
I made the school house wall hanging for a friend and wanted to do something like that in a punched piece.
I decided I wanted to put it on a chalkboard and with the extra space, I thought a mini stitchery would go perfect with it.
Both pieces I made up as I went. The stitchery is was designed as I went, adding one thing and another. I was thinking I was a 7 year old school girl without the experience of the older girls and just went with it and as you can see, this is the result. I put the name Edith, my grandmother's name. She is the one who rug hooked, sewed, and had a ceramic studio, so you can see who I got my creative genes from.
I painted and antiqued the chalkboard. The entire set has that old yellowed look to it. I love how this piece came out and this will be hard to part with. But, it is going up on ebay later tonight if anyone is interested in this piece.
