Primitive Stool with a Star Santa Penny Rug......

Here we are--just in time for gift giving or decorating! My latest wooly goodie! This began with a cute little green vintage stool with three legs that I found at the Cambridge Auction. The Star Santa Penny Rug is designed to lay on top--it is not attached but of course, you could attach it if you wanted. The stool and the penny rug are 10 inches across. The stool is 8 1/2 inches high. The top of the stool is 1 1/2 inches thick and I have added a band of pennies to the rim--a penny garland which is sewn in a ring but not attached to the stool. I have used all recycled wools in this-so the project is just a "green" as the stool-the penny mat is done on a black background and the mat is lined with dark green. The penny garland alternates black pennies with green backing and green pennies with black backing. All is hand sewn with tiny blanket stitching. His eyes are painted blue. The mat is signed and dated. This stool with penny rug and penny garland is available for 35.00 plus 8.95 shipping ----Check out PrimitivePairs on my website.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hooked Rugs R US!!

Wow--I've been really busy. Trying to get two commissions done in a timely fashion as well as keep up with the rest of our lives.
My commissions are coming along--I'm almost done the smaller one--a barn star on a black background with a red border.
The second is larger and a little more detailed but it should move along quickly.
I've been working on the sea glass jewelry as well and the web site is now up. Stop by and visit me at Sea Glass Jewelry by Spirit of the Sea
On a personal note, I've actually done a little Christmas shopping--thats unusual for me to have started so soon. Sure it won't last and I'll be back to my last minute self in no time.
