I have been wanting to do a profile silhouette of
 George Washington and Abe Lincoln for some time.
Then I found' Firecracker Kid Primitives'... (check them out)
Carol & hubby custom made for me this small primitive frame 
that I thought would be ideal for my plan.
Here is a picture of Georgy ... a pretty good likeness if I say so myself.
The frame is perfectly made and completes the design.

I painted it red, then black and crackled the finish.  For the finishing touch, 
I sanded it some more for a more prim look.
I am a 'HAPPY CAMPER' today.

Next is Honest Abe...

"Basket of Memories" is fini !

This was so much fun ... Reward of Merit Pincushion
I used chenille trim around the edges.
Filled with ground English walnut shells.
It will be given as a gift to one of my girls.

The picture has to be re shot as the
night time lighting is not good 
and I prefer to not use the flash.

 Hmmmm ... What a difference ... 
#1 - I used incandescent lighting...
#2 - just natural light from the good ole sun.
I doo believe I like the warmth in #1 Best.

Anyways, it is a delightful pattern from 'Blackbird Designs'.
