This cute little cottage illustration is from a vintage valentine uploaded to Flickr by Calsidyrose. It’s been in my favorites for a long time, and I finally managed to use it in a project.
I used the vintage Prang Crayonex crayons, and they worked very well on fabric — much better than the Crayola crayons I normally use. They are more dense so they don’t crumble as easily, and they blend very smoothly with other colors so it’s much easier to add shading and mix colors. The outline was stitched with two strands of floss.
I am hoping to finish this in time for Allie’s Christmas Club in January. Good progress is being made on the crossword quilt, but there’s no way I’m finishing it this month.
