This is my entry for the SMILE Challenge on the Rug Hooking Daily group. I got it finished March 30. It was done on white linen in mainly 3's. The challenge part was the elf and I added in the sun, flowers and border and my season for the challenge was Summer. I think it's okay, This is one of the few pieces that isn't 100% my own artwork.
I just got the Tribal Sheep finished today and am almost through with the whipped edge. This is done in 3's except for the balck border which is in 8's on linen. I really like this one and am happy the way the gold background came out. There's about 4-5 shades of gold in it that I hand ddyed in different dye batches. The browns came from some wool that I got gifted with this year.
I'm going to try and finish up some of my UFO's--the Cat's paw runner, the tribal butterfly and Greenman before I tackle anything new. I'm also going to try and do some felting soon to make up some medicine pouches for the my show on April 24th.
Around the Yard ~ - I love my gardens in the spring. They are lush and green with so many things blooming, but don't get too close. They look great from afar, but up close ...
