OFF THE FRAME!!!!!




I actually finished it last week on Wed. nite!!!
I didn't feel up to steaming it on Thursday sooo I drew up a chair pad and started hookin'!!!! The chair pad got sold pretty much as soon as I finished it.
FINALLY on Saturday I decided that I HAD to get the rug steamed and listed on ebay.
SOooooo I put the biggest Olfa cutting board they make on the floor,there was no way I could use the ironing board cause the rug's too big. Anyhoo I have this cutting board since they 1st came out with them and it's already warped,so the heat wouldn't hurt it. I put a thick towel on it,plugged in the iron with an extension cord,wet a towel to cover the rug. THEN it was, just how in the hell do I get down on the floor???? Hire the handicapped they're fun to watch LOL!!!! With much difficulty I finally got on the floor and with more difficulty couldn't quite find a way to be half ways comfortable. Then I needed a kleenex,with MORE difficulty I tried to get up!!!! Well my right leg,which is the worst one,didn't want to work!!! I SURE wasn't going to get down on the floor again!!! THEN the light bulb lit up!!!! FINALLY!!! Put the whole thing on the peninsula part,DUH!!!! I've done that before,don't know why I didn't do it this time,brain fart I guess!!!
So I've gotten my rugs bound and got my Xstitch sampler framed and last nite drew up another chair pad like the one pictured here,that I sold. Also got the X stitch sampler and an antique printers draw listed on ebay.
Everything pictured is on ebay except for the chair pad,if you'd like to take a closer look.
Bunches of Thank You's for stopping by!!!!
Hookin' Time!!!

  3. Love the chair pad. What did you back it with? I just made one recently, but I stuck it on a little round stool. I just love that hit or miss look!
    Super job!

  5. Such beautiful items -- what a talented lady you are!
    And yeah -- getting up and down off the floor -- can't do that easily either! These knees just ain't what they used to be!
    Have a happy day!
