Here’s the Heart of Scraps on black linen. I finished the potholder to see what it would look like. The linen comes from a long jumper, plenty of fabric. It’s just the black I was imagining, lots of tooth and subtle variations of black.
I thought this black rose cotton made a good backing. I have many more orders than the 20 I said I would make yesterday. I’m not sure how many I can or am willing to make. (I don’t want to get to the point where I don’t like making them and it becomes a tedious chore, I do believe that would come through in the work). So for now I’m not taking any more orders and when I have more to sell, I’ll let you know.
I moved my scrap bucket to take a picture of it and, as if she knew, Frieda got up and sat next to it looking into the camera. She got a biscuit for that.
