Dee's Home and Garden part two

 A Rug Dee bought from rug hooker Peggy Teich.   


                                 I was trying to learn to carve at one time.
                      This is the tool she uses.

There was so much to see at Dee’s that I had to do a part two blog post. After we had sat enjoying her garden we went inside to share what we have been doing. I showed her my never ending wool crazy quilt and my chicken of course and Dee showed me some wonderful cheater fabric pillows she made.   Dee had made a simple runner on a  piece of plain canvas that was simple yet different.Her home is candy for your eyes your constantly looking at all the things she has made . Many of the things she has done in the past is little stitcheries and cross stitch.. When I saw this bowl full of little stitches made by her and gifts from her friends I had to take a picture.

Dee is so artistic from her dolls she has made to her carving and painting.She is an extremely creative person.

 Rocks covered with doilies

                                 Pillows Dee just made.

I have included old photo's for those who haven't seen them. 

 Hubby made the little chest at the dolls feet

                                        A simple carving Dee did.

The entire setting is perfect but I especially love the doll. Guess I'll just have to try to make my own doll since I love the primitive look of this one.
