Am caught up now with TAST. Last weeks stitch was the whipped wheel stitch and this weeks is the barred chain. Anyone wanting to join or to find information about TAST - Take A Stitch Tuesday - it's on Sharon's Pintangle site.
First I rusted this piece of cloth for a day on some chicken wire sprinkled down with a vinegar/water mix. Then I eco dyed it using only rose leaves. I loved how it turned out and was very surprised at how dark the rose leaves were.
This piece of cloth I wrapped around an old rusty Edwards coffee tin for a day again sprinkled down with a vinegar/water mix. Rose leaves again on this piece turned out well.
My new old sewing machine! It's a White from 1964. Thankfully I found an instruction manual on-line as well as some youtube clips. Can't wait to figure it out and use it. It's heavy too - not much plastic on it that's for sure.
Caught this little 13 Lined Ground Squirrel stuffing and I mean stuffing his cheeks underneath the bird feeder. He must be fattening himself up for the long winter months ahead.
