PROGRESS ON THE CHURCH…

Wellll not much since I last posted a picture! Have been so busy and having way too much fun – still have 10 fingers to hook with so maybe carving pieces in the future is in the cards. Once my fish is attached to his wormbox I will post a picture. However, I did block off an area to hook this morning (in between dyeing wool and ripping strips out of my Riverus Otterus Canadiensis!). Hmmmm there is a story behind that but first here is the church:

My friend Nancy, for whom I designed Mr. Wieeennneerrrr, asked if I would do a river otter design – same size as the wiener dog rug and facing the other direction so she could hang them both facing each other. Well hmmm that was almost a year ago I think and since Nancy was coming to my hookin this past Sunday and gently (oh so gently) prodding me for the pattern I drew it up on Friday and started hooking it on Saturday. Well it WAS coming along but when I looked at it last night hanging across the room I realised that hmmmmmm not enough light in the water! Out came wrong strips and in will go new strips – much lighter so that the water lilies and bullrushes and otters pop! As for the unusual name – wellllll I figure this might qualify for my “canadiana” challenge for Camp Iawah retreat in 2013! I love 2 birds with one stone (notice I left out the killing – not in my vocabulary!) So no pix of the otters until the tweaking is done and it is finished!

Don’t forget – this weekend is Sundance Studio Tour in Maberly. I have taken a vacation from Sundance this year but will be visiting the tour with my weekend guests. There are I believe over 30 artists at one location and having done the show with many of them in the past I know this will be a great event. So if you are in the area try to stop in to Sundance – now at the intersection of highways 7 and 36 in Maberly.

Next weekend is Fiberfest in Almonte and YES I will be there! Saturday and Sunday – always a great show for anyone loving fiber!

  3. Hi Loretta, The little church is gorgeous and I’ve been wondering it could be the little, blue church at the corner of Hwy 2 and Blue Church Road? I love it!!

  4. This looks like the little blue church that’s somewhere along Hwy 2 and the St. Lawrence. You’ve done a fantastic job, by the way.
