Web of Hearts

This little miniature framed rug is a web of Hearts, placed in a delightful distressed frame. This is my own design and one of a kind. The bird next to the rug is a make-do peahen, which is used for pins and needles and she has 2 small punched rug medalions hanging from her neck. I made 4 of these, the others have been sold and all were made with different fabrics and rug medalions. The tiny tom tomatoes are less than an inch in diameter growing in a pot on my screened porch. The looked so colorful on my kitchen shelf, I couldn't resisit snappy a picture!

More Works

Scroll down to see descriptions and detail information on my work. Here are some close-ups of needlepunch rugs...again, all of my work is for sale.

New Works

The photos of the collage is an 18oo's collection of some of my favorite things, coverlets, samplers, hooked rugs, penny rugs, jugs and a wonderful early doll on a handwork green stenciled chair. All of my collages are one of a kind with 3 dimensional embellishments throughout the canvas. I start with a blank canvas, paint it and distress it. The images have been downsized after I painstakingly cut out each image, then the aging process on each item. Some of the samplers and pictures have been pasted to fiberboard to add a dimension to the work. All of my works are for sale, please enter a comment if you are interested in purchasing my works.
One of my projects is a grouping of 3 hinged wooden houses. Watercolors and dictionary definitions applied and distressed. The houses have a wonderful beeswax coating which adds a nice smooth texture to the surface....and smells delicious!
