More Green Cat

I'm hooking everyday now despite the awful heat in South Carolina generally 90-100 and no air conditioning outside where I work on stuff. Thankfully I have nice shaded porch that sits high off the ground with lovely steady breezes wandering through most of the day.

Fiendfyre is done except for the final edging on it which I haven't decided on what to do with it. Going between just whipping it or adding a braided border. I'll have to see what I have left in the gray department uncut up. This was a massive project to do 36 x 78 but I had youngest son prodding me to get it done--I think he wants it.

The two Tribal Rabbits which I guess are going to be pillows are done except for the finishing. They're 18 1/2 x 19 and 19 diameter.

Circles runner in case I forgot to post it. All finished including the edging. 17 x 53

Currently working on green cat again. Here's my progress as of 6-27-11.

Back to hooking

I've gotten back into hooking again. Just small pieces for the moment. I finally finished my circles runner I had started a while back. It's 53 x 17 done in odd ball leftovers from different projects ranging from 3's to 6's. it's okay but not that great either. I didn't plan it out and just grabbed up whatever looked okay at the time. I think I spaced the circles too closely and didn't have enough black background show through. It's busy I think. It also has a irregular ripple edge on purpose just to see how such and edge would look.

The next new piece is one of my tribal rabbits. I did a pair on burlap as just rabbits in circles. This one I added a squared off border with circles and shapes. It's done in creams, beiges and tans, with darker browns. The rabbit is black and so is the background of the border. It's 18 1/2 x 19. The other one is similar except with a circle border and will have reversed coloring with the rabbit getting the creams, the inner circle black and the border in creams, browns and blacks.

An updated picture of Fiendfyre. Still have top, bottom and sides to go and hope to get it finished this summer.
