Forest Doll

I'm just about finished with my latest Mother Nature doll. Just need to take a few photos for the pattern and I'll be all set for publication. This one stands about 12"...not too tall. I added some small stones at the base so she won't tip over. She's perfect for the upcoming fall season.

Folk Bell Flowers....Hooked Version

All done with the hooking. Now I just need to bind it. This was a fun project. I love the effects of the wool yarn and ribbon and I'll definitely do it again.

Hooking Away

Been hooking away on my latest rug. I don't think I will add a border...and not sure how I'll finish the edges. But now I need to set it aside and get busy dyeing wool for the upcoming show in Sequim, the Sunbonnet Quilt Show. It will be here before I know it! I can be pondering these rug hooking dilemmas in the meantime.

Folk Bell Flowers Revisited

 I have started another rug and it is also from one of my wool applique patterns; Folk Bell Flowers.
I'm totally smitten in using yarn and sari ribbon with the "normal" wool strips. I love the overall effect that is happening.
Happy Sunday to all!

A Few More Loops

Been making head way on this rug....now that I stopped unhooking. I have about a quarter of the border left and then the binding. I think I'll dye some yarn up and be ready.

More Tree of Life Kits

Had a run of these "Tree of Life " kits this week, so I'm busy dyeing up more. This is a Swedish pattern from the 50's, that I adapted. It was originally designed for crewel embroidery.
