my finish

Jonah's Hornbook
35 ct linen and coffee dyed processing by me
Hornbook from Ebay, color is Ohio Cupboard Blue
threads --DMC
designer---The Sampler Girl
Tanya Marie Anderson
I decided to coffee stain and dab dye with coffee grounds to make it a bit more primitive.
I'm pleased with the results. I decided not to attach the jute around the board but through the hole at the top. I really like how it turned out.


  1. This turned out wonderful! I know you are thrilled with the outcome as I would be too! Congratulations on a stunning finish!

  2. Thanks Sherry!! I do like it!
    The coffee dying is fun too me but I do hold my breath while I'm doodling with coffee grounds on it at what the results will be. I baked it in the oven this time to dry it as her directions but a tad longer than the 2 minutes. Then steam ironed it. Of course this is DMC threads so if this were specialty overdyed threads I couldn't have done it afterward.

  3. OMW Jennifer....that's all that I can say is OMW, as I am stunned at how beautiful it turned out! You are amazing, as I am such a novice, I am learning so much from you wise and crafty ladies. Your work, once again awes me.

    Hugs and High Fives all around :)

  4. Thanks, Karyn! Your always so sweet!
