Witchy Stitchin'

How did September blur by so quickly that it's now more than half over?  My first show is less than 2 weeks away, and I'm feeling like I don't have enough made up.  We're expecting 80 degree weather through next weekend, so just how many people will be thinking about scarves and hats this early?  Hmm...time to get creative and produce something new!

Last night I finished up this cute witch penny rug.  The background is on the most beautiful marbled wool felt color that is no longer available.  I have a piece that has deep purple into pink and another piece that is more light blue into purple.  Wish I could find more, because I've never seen such a diverse tone in hand dyed wool.  I constructed this piece a bit differently than usual, cutting a solid black backing which included the penny flaps already attached.  I just love how the witch's profile turned out, hair blowing in the wind, teetering just so on that crooked ol' broomstick!


  1. Wow, that's a great mix purple and yellow, and it looks awesome a witchy rug :) The time is flying by us like your witch on her broom... cya!
