Miniature of my granddog Taylor in the Miramichi

This is a 5x7 hooking that I am finishing for Christmas.
I started this in a Miniature workshop that my friend Barb Leduc here in Moncton, NB

I made a few changes as you see with adding more saturated colors and no leaves. This is a lot of fun and you can surprisingly get a lot of detail such a small space.

My first Workshop teaching.

Hi gang, I thought I would let you know that teaching my first 2 day workshop in Fredericton NB my Wooly Mason Jar Color Wheel dye system.
Moose River Rug Hooking Studio in Nova Scotia has already had 2 full workshops and had to have a 3rd "Back by popular demand" class in December. My friend Barb Leduc has been teaching and selling for me but will be leaving for Florida for the winter soon so I have to do it myself.
I am leaving soon and am scared to knees are shaking but since this is my invention I know everything about it.
Teacher love the system as a teaching tool as it is so easy.
I would have let you all know sooner but I didn't want to jinx myself. Wish me luck.

Needle felting a hummingbird

I started this little needle feltiing this morning at hooking. The inspiration was a beautiful card the girls had given me after a dye demo. It just so happened the perfect little piece of wools with all the leftover dyes made a perfect backing for it.
Needle felting is so much fun and fast. I will decide whether to felt or proddy the flowers once the mood hits me.

Well I decided to applique some flowers with beads.
