Hooking, Knitting, Fiber.... Isn't Life Grand!


Isn't this gorgeous!!  Done by my lovey Lily.  It's from a photo of a church in Costa Rica she took and turned into a rug this summer at our Jane Halliwell Green workshop in Maine.  The sky is absolutely brilliant, and the blue church with all the shadows makes for such a rich combination of colors.  Don't even know where to begin with the flowers other than FABULOUS!  Well Done Lily!
I'm currently working in neutrals.  This is part of a motif that will become a handbag eventually.  Doing this one for a friend, and really love working in these creams and mushroom colors.  The black will be background and the plaid will be the lining. 

Purple stripe socks are almost done.... weekend spent hooking, knitting, perusing the new edition of "selvedge"....  heaven!

Lily's rug is beautiful! She learned her 'lesson' well!! Neutrals are hard for me ~ do you find it a challenge, too? And what could be better than purple socks ~ you are a multi-talented girl!!!

on the bag?!?!?

Lily created a gorgeous piece.
