I am still working on secret projects, so I cannot show you, what I have been working on;)
I did make a couple of new hearts. One I made by using a muslim heart for the back and placed pieces of scraps on top and then used my sewing machine to do the stitching, over the raw edges. The second one, I sewed scraps together, then cut out the heart and did the stitches on the seams with floss. I think the machine one came out nice, on the right/front. The second one, has less pieces, so I don't like it as much, but easier and faster to do it that way. I think they look good in my new candle holder. That was a find at an antique booth.
And for something old. This is a rug I made, in my first year of hooking. We had a contest, to make a game rug and this is what I came up with. It has been hanging on the wall and starting to warp, so time to take it down and give it a good steam press, then find a better way to hang it. I would like to make a wood, box frame to put it in. I think it would look nice and lend to the gaming look.
