The rug will be hues of pinks and blues and I’m aiming for subtle and old looking. This is a challenge as I love blue rugs but usually lean towards warmer colours.
Sandy, owner of the shed/store, is a primitive designer and hooker and antiques lover and it was hard to keep the visit under an hour. Patient hubby and dog walked outside whilst I made my purchases of patterns, sale dyed wools and off the bolt textures.
Here in eastern Canada we have excellent teachers and courses available, however, I have never taken a class from a primitive teacher.
Do any of you know of online courses from a good primitive teacher? I have searched and cannot find any.
On a more mundane note, my hubby got a subscription to Masterclass and we are really enjoying the cooking courses and looking forward to Jane Goodall next. An excellent resource for learning!!!
We got 8 inches of snow from a nor’easter and are anticipating hiking and hot tub with friends…..
