Gold Finch House


I think this little Gold Finch has been dreaming of warm and sunny days!


She has built her little house with Sunflowers all around!
Petals are around her door and pretty flowers in the window boxes. 


She even has sunflowers growing by the back door,


and a bee buzzing around her flowers!

EggBert



Well, I don’t know what happened but an egg hatched 
and it turned out to be a rabbit,
 so meet EggBert!

You can tell from the look on his face that he is kinda surprised too! 

EggBert visiting my Mother's Flox that started blooming.

EggBert has a wooly bunny tail!


No - there is no genetic engineering going on in the studio, 
just some Easter fun.

Wishing everyone a Blessed and Happy Easter!

More Rugs!



Six rugs just came off of the loom today and they are all patriotic colors.


This photo shows them after they came off of the loom. 
Do you see glowing cat eyes at the top of the rugs?  


Inspector Sadie has added her stamp of approval!

When I order the selvage used to make my Cabin Rugs there is no choice of colors.
 I usually get darker colors and sometimes pastels.
I was very happy with the last order because it had red, white and blues,
 which I usually do not get especially the blues.
All of them were saved till I could make this warp. 

Ready to cut apart and serge the ends.






Ready to hand hem.




Five of the rugs are from selvage till I ran out 
and then I finished the last one with denim.

There are two that I would really like to keep but cannot.
They will be for sell here at the studio or if they last that long at the June studio tour.  

After hemming the rugs then I will be back to stitching/finishing birds and a new rabbit.
I finally got my order of bird eyes! 
I have to find a more reliable source for them. 

 My daffodils are beautiful and our weeping cherry tree is about to bloom. 
Unfortunately it is supposed to be below freezing and some snow flurries this weekend. 
I hope it doesn't kill all of our beautiful blooms.  
After anxiously waiting for Spring to begin
 I will feel so sad to see our first blooms frozen!

Green Man


Green Man,
 a symbol of rebirth representing the cycle of growth each Spring.


In honor of the first day of Spring 2015,
 I made my version of green man.


Happy First Day of Spring!!
