GOOSE IN THE GRASS…

A couple of months ago my good friend Bonnie gave me the most magnificent carved primitive Canada goose. It is huge – I do have another flying goose by an amazing Quebec carver and this made a wonderful addition to the flock! I decided to house her (yes it is a she) in my newly painted bathroom however she looked a little forlorn. She is peaking over her back at hmmmm something resting in the grass – but there was no grass. So I decided to take a cue from friend Wendy and prod her a wonderful grassy mound. Took a couple of days and a lot of wool but she is now happily grounded in a lovely, thick, grassy matt. Hmmm, I do have some faux eggs – wonder if that might be what she is looking for – may have to give her one or two to make her happy…

Beth sent me a picture of her finished Cardinal mat…

For those of you who join us at Stitch by Stitch please note that because I will be teaching a punch needle class at the store on March 22 I won’t be back for my usual monthly morning until April 10.

    Love your “prodding”…..I think she’s a very happy mama by now. We’re finishing our 6 week stay in Malta and then on to England for two weeks and back to Ottawa in time for a knee replacement surgery on March 16th. It’s been a wonderful way to spend part of winter. I’m sure I’ll see you at the convention, all being well and if I’m mobile enough. All good things, Linda

  12. Hi Loretta: We have had to cancel our attendance at the annual this year. My daughter Andrea is having 2 surgery’s and it will all happen along with the recovery when the annual will be taking place.

    I just wanted to let you know as you were going to bring the sheep boards for me to see. So I wish we were going but I need to be home now to help take care of her and her family while she is recovering.

    Many thanks
