Fishapple Tree

Just finished this rug! I was initially thinking of hooking a fish tree, but it looked rather bare so needed to add some apples to zip it up a bit. ...but may still do a fish tree. Yes!, fish is very much on my brain...stay tuned for "Lady Walking Fish".

Nice day to take your Fish Out

Or another title for this one could be "THE FISH ATE MY BABY!" tee hee. This one was a little different for me as I don't usually do purple skies, but happy with the way it turned out.

I just finished this one, on this chilly January morning. Hmmm, just looking at it now..think I will change the colour of her shoes to red..yes! red...to match her hair..and the dead fish.

Women in Black

I have been hooking a lot of woman wearing black lately..not sure why..just seems to work. I drew a woman with a dead fish on her lap, as well as a woman pushing a fish in a baby stroller. ..I think I will put them in black dresses as well. The imagination is a wonderful thing!...and so are black dresses.

Hooking a 4x5" for Argyle Fine Art Pre-Shrunk Show

Hooking a 4x5" piece is a bit of challenge as I use a wide-cut  and loosely woven burlap. But I did it! I went down to a 6 cut and used lots of sari-yarn and I was able to get some more detail. So, I 'll keep my fingers crossed that this piece is accepted and in the show.
