Oh, how I had hoped to have my floorcloth done by today, but since I don't, I'll give an update. For those of you, (my mom!) who guessed the theme of my first floorcloth would be Ann and Andy, you were right! I wasn't sure at the time what kind of Raggedies I would come up with, so here they are..... With the help of CC at Lace 'n Ribbon Roses, I managed to squeak out this cute set. CC has some vintage embroideries she posted on her blog, the Ann was one of them, I adapted the pattern to suit Andy.
I fear the reason it's taken me so long to finish this rug is because, it's very tedious to paint. Now, normally I like tediousness, BUT! Because this is canvas with a thick weave, one must glob paint on the brush to get a decent, solid, brushstroke. What happens when you glob too much on a brush? It tends to drip. I scared myself while painting the shoes, I almost had a drip splatter of black color in my border.
I would of cried! C&G Design
(Whew! No wonder they are so expensive!)
