Well, I did say earlier in the week that I was hoping to get the new Turkey candle mat finished and shown by the end of the week.
Here it is, the end of the week already and I’m not finished with it yet.
I’ll show the almost finished one though, just so all of you can see what’s coming soon.
I’m making this one to sell as finished, I think. I’ll make another one in lighter colors for the pattern to sell
I really love the darker colors in the turkey, but it’s going to be difficult for customers to find the wools for it shown this way so I’ll do another version with easier to find colors, I think.
Hubby is on vacation this week so it’s a bit harder to get the time to stitch when he’s around all the time.
The house ….
I wanted the windows to be framed so that took extra time but I’m so happy with how nice it looks.
The only problem now is that the original shutters that we had for the windows are now too small so we’re going to have to purchase new ones which amounts to quite a bit more $$.
I wanted hubby to ask John, our Amish worker to make us new shutters but hubby scoffed at the idea. I get my ideas scoffed a lot but it’s always worth a try. Sometimes I’m right …. like my idea to frame the windows. So it might be a scoffable idea to have our shutters custom made simply because the cost would be outrageous, but they sure would look fabulous.
We have been so fortunate to finally find someone to do work for us that we’re happy with … that is comparable to hubby doing it himself.
John is so careful and such a conscientious worker that we’re going to use him for everything, as $$ permits.
Anyone who might live in the western Pa area and needs any kind of work down on or in their home, I highly recommend John. He’s from Harrisville, Pa, which is a little over an hour north of us but he’s willing to travel.
Ok, it’s going to be a hot one today. Thank you air conditioning for making my life pleasant!
Happy day and Have a great weekend!
