On Sunday I finally got to work on my 18" wool table round in penny mat style. It was a chore enough cutting and fusing the wools together, but now I've got to blanket stitch each piece, add embroidery highlights and then attach all the leaves together with squiggly embroidered embellishment. I'm not a great hand embroiderer, so I'm sure this one will definitely fit the 'primitive' bill when it's complete.
No creative pursuits on Labor Day, unless you count a cookout for 21 that was not only burgers, dogs and chicken, but a bushel of crabs, lump crabcakes, shrimp, lobster, and raw oysters (seafood courtesy of my BIL) and all the requisite sides. Started at 2:00 and the last guest left around 7:00. I then spent another 2 hours picking the leftover crabs. My hands don't exactly feel like doing anything today other than trying to heal all their little cuts from the crab shells. Maybe I'll just wrap them around some of the leftover beers still in the cooler.
