Switching mediums!

I have been playing around with paint and paper and this is my latest project. This little canvas is a Christmas gift for a friend. Don't worry friend, it is going to look a lot different when completed and hopefully better. I'll show the different steps along the way in my next post. That is of course if it looks good! Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. Maria

Excuse the Cheerios in the picture!

The Finished Tree Skirt

Julie sent me a picture of the completed tree skirt. All she needs to do is bind it. Isn't it great! Thanks to Julie for sharing this awesome finished rug. Maria

Whale rug

This is an antique rug that I have been wanting to hook for a while and never seemed to find the time to hook it. As I've been spending a lot of time in the car lately traveling to hockey games I managed to hook it this past month.
I have an affinity for whales and just loved this antique rug depicting whaling. Somehow, I think those guys in that little boat with the small harpoon didn't stand a chance of catching this massive creature. That's my story anyways.
I still need to tweak the rug a bit and I'm thinking I may add a braided border to the edge. The second picture is of the antique rug. Thanks for stopping by, Maria
