When animals groom each other often everyone, except the insect’s benefits. Anne was hanging out on Constance’s back while both chicks pecked at the bugs in her wool. Kitty and Anne got a snack and Constance got groomed.
I’m sure those chicken feet feel pretty good on Constance’s back too. A back scratch and massage in one.
I have a new batch of Scrap Bin Potholders for sale in my Etsy Shop. Some are made with pieces of Vintage Hankies and some with pieces from an old quilt. A few are just made with plain old scraps.
My Scrap Bin Potholders are $20 +$5 shipping. You can see them all and buy them here.
I also have one more Kitty and Anne on the Pink Chair Potholder. I miss counted how many were sold when I put them up for sale in my Etsy Shop last week and have one more available.
My Kitty and Anne Potholder is $30 + $5 shipping. It’s more expensive because I draw each one individually using my free-motion sewing machine. Each one is an original drawing and there’s a lot more work involved to make them. It’s sewn on vintage linen. You can buy it here.
I took this photo of Zinnia this morning. While lying in bed I saw her reflection in the old glass of the kneeling window which swings open on hinges into the room. The only editing I did was to adjust the colors, making some shadows darker and bringing up the color.
I keep looking at it thinking I’m looking at a painting.
Ever since I got my free-motion sewing machine I’ve been telling the stories of the farm and my life in images and words I’ve created with it.
Kitty and Anne are the latest story. They roosted on the old pink Victorian chair in the barn, like it was their throne. I took their picture then turned them into a potholder.
I made six Kitty and Anne on the Pink Chair Potholders. I stitched them on a vintage linen table runner. I cut off the hand-stitched decorative edging and sewed it onto the top and bottom of the potholders. As always with my potholders, I “draw” each one individually so they are all slightly different.
I didn’t get a chance to take pictures of them all before it got dark, so I’ll put them up for sale in my Etsy Shop tomorrow. Or you can email me about the at [email protected]. They’re $30 each + $5 shipping for one or more.
