Rug in Progress

When I get stuck on a rug, I 'll drape it over the TV and lie on the couch ..and stare at it. The wood stove is also in the room which makes it warm and toasty so...I often fall asleep.

A year in the life of Judy.

I finished hooking summer Judy a few minutes here they are..a Judy for every season.

These will be available at Swoon Fine Art in April for the "Judy Show"...hope to see you there!


I hooked "Oliver" in the was a special request from my photographer, Jody O'Brien. As you rugs are not exactly realistic so this was a bit of a challenge for me. An artist friend helped..and in the end....I am happy with it..and so was Jody, and that is what really matters.

Spring Judy SOLD

I hung her on outside, on the give winter a hint.
Actually, I don't completely dislike winter....I love hoking by the woodstove...but don't love scrapping the car at 7am to get my son to school..guess it is a hate/love thing  I got going with winter.

Winter Judy (DONATED)

She wasn't quite as much fun to hook as Fall Judy...perhaps I have become a wee bit tired of the snow.
