Another finish




Another finished project by Blackbird Designs. I made this as a model for a local cross stitch store. I used the linen and fibers called for. I was even able to fill it with crushed walnut shells that I picked up last year at Quilt Festival. I am very happy with the results and I am looking forward to bringing it home in the future.

Beautiful finish. Never thought about crushed walnut shells. Marvelous idea.

Just a note about the crushed walnut shells....you can buy a large bag at pet stores (such as Pet Smart). This is used in bird
& hamster cages, but it is exactly
the same thing sold at needlework
markets.
The one I bought was:
Kaytee Walnut Litter, 7 lb. for
about $10 (this will do many projects!).
Don't be confused by 'crushed walnut shells' -- this is very fine, almost like cornmeal. It works great in small pillows, pin cushions, etc. It has the feel of
a 'bean bag'.
