Comfort. We surround ourselves with things we love that provide comfort. We invite you to savor the comfort zone of primitive artist Maggie Bonanomi.
She's created 18 new projects: bed covers, hooked rugs, pillows, tablerunners, whimsical sewing items - even a jacket and toe warmers. As always, many are inspired by the antiques Maggie collects.
Helpful advice is included as well - Maggie includes instructions on how to add an aged look to your projects. She lists helpful items to collect to create these primitive projects. She describes many thrifty tips for working with recycled and re-purposed items.

I still feel awfully lucky to live and work doing what I love to do, creating fabric, textures and color and living here in Lexington, Missouri, in my wonderful old house that makes the perfect backdrop for my projects.
I grew up moving around, as my dad was in the Air Force. There were three of us kids that packed up our toys while mother packed up our home and off we went to our new location. We lived in California, Washington, from the Midwest to New England, always having to start over again. We did it. I used this great lesson when I married and my husband decided to return to the Army for another 20 years. We spent time moving stateside, but also had two tours in Germany. I always wanted to make our home comfortable, but often we did not have much of our own furniture with us. So, I used lessons learned from my mother, making do with what we had and creating comfort in what was available to us - a good lesson in creativity that I still draw on today.
I am thankful I have had many interesting opportunities to create and design and best of all, an outlet for it. With our move some eight years ago to this home in Missouri, my focus has become more defined. Clearly the 19th century fits me and my home. I hope to stay here for a long time, it suits me just fine.
