Garden Baby


If you happened to read Tammy's blog today, she mentioned that we spent some time yesterday brainstorming new directions to artistically take hooking. We both are interested in mixed media and collage type art, but consider ourselves to be hookers at heart. Today I played around with my wool and hook and came up with this little piece. The tiny, sweet porcelain doll was given to me by my friend Katie. The pearls are part of a dainty old bracelet I picked up at Leola's, and the frame is a cheap plastic one that my mother gold-leafed sometime back. I hooked a miniature garden scene and attached the doll and pearls. Fun to stretch and play around with something different!

Dulcy, this is really unique and different. I like it.

I have to ask....how is Rosie doing? Is she still hanging in there and doing okay? I think of her/you often and keep her in my prayers.

JoJo........I tried to get a message to you threw Multiply, but apparently you didn't see it. Rosie is only ok, but she doesn't weight but maybe five pounds. She has thyroid issues, but the medications don't seem to do much. She eats, purrs, and is able to get around so we're leaving things "as is." Theres' some other issues that are difficult for her. She's probably about 12-14 years old, so on the elderly side. So are just SO sweet to always check in with me and take an interest in Rosie. I was just so sad to hear about your Cinnamon....what's the easiest way to reach you? I don't really use Multiply.

SO creative. I have never seen anything like it. I was so bummed that I didn't get to see you again yesterday. You made my day this morning when I got in and found my present. You are so sweet. Thank you. I miss you, my friend. I do.
