I got 2 packages in the mail yesterday...more goodies so I can make more penny/folkart pillows or rugs with.;)
Remember this trencher I got in the mail a couple of weeks ago...well it certainly wasn't to my I painted it..and it turned out muddy..(sorry didn't take photos) so then yesterday I painted it again..
here it is sanded and with no old english scratch cover on it..the blue is much more pronounced..
