NOAH'S ARK PROJECT ..Lucy Squirrel Done!!

This is where I am stopping. I hope it all fits together well enough. I hooked inside the line so it should. I sculpted the tail a bit so it is pretty fluffy. This was a hard project for me but glad I participated. I hope they like it.

Big Honkin Rug

This is the main section of my BHR rug online challenge which I should have had done by January 1, 2009 but as usual I am late. Now I have to figure out the borders.

This is the cabin we used to have on the Miramichi River and when I designed the mat I decided to use linen instead of my favorite burlap and was feeling something missing when drawing it on the linen. I have a spiritual connection with my grand-mere ( in heaven) who hooked on burlap and I was not getting that warm feeling so I hooked her on the deck with me.
If you look close in the sky I have 2 fish and a rug hook in the clouds, lol....I love having fun with my hooking.

I have decided to put log cabin quilt blocks in each corner and not exactly sure for the rest.

Tower of London Raven

11 x 16" #4 cut on linen.
This is my design for a monochromatic workshop with Barb Leduc.
I have always been intrigued by this legend and ravens so I combined the two for the workshop.

Legend has it the Tower of London will collapse and the kingdom will fall if all the ravens leave.

I dyed my values myself and I am not a dyer so I started with 8 vaued and never got any lights so I continued until I had 12 values. The 3 darkest were almost the same. Now I finished with about 3 strips left so I tried to dye more, ha! I apperently made a mistake in the first batch so I got purple and pinks, oh, oh I am in trouble. Anyway I think I have enough dark stuff overdyed to make a dark border but maybe I would put any border.

Sadie and I on the water

My little corgi mix Sadie looks like she loves the water but in truth she does not like to get her belly wet and when your legs are only about 6 inches long that is not very deep,lol.
When I would kayak Sadie would cry and follow me down the bank and even try to swim out to me she was so worried about me so now I put her between my legs and she is happy. My daughter Katie says we both have the same expression on our faces.
Sadie is so cute and such a good little dog.
