Clover is so fun. She is a Theresa Rapstine pattern hooked with torn strips. Walking on this rug is heavenly! I'm almost finished with a Rooster named Rosco who is purple. He has quite the crush on Clover!
I also finished the Crazy Horse Bag by Susan Quicksall. It was finished by a leather company and I absolutely love it. I bought Susan's kit and I'm so glad I did. It came with drawings of the bag and marked which wools went where. The wools were also well marked. I think I"m going to use this bag as my purse.
I especially like how the leather company used a black leather on the gussets and the brown on top. The inside is lined with sturdy lining with pockets and a heavy duty double pull zipper at the top.
I mentioned the Cheticamp Frame earlier. My daughter and I, mainly my daughter, built it ourselves. There were no real directions so I drew out the blueprint on graph paper and we took off to build it. The hardest part was finding the wood. We live is small towns so the lumber yards didn't have many choices for different woods. Home Depot was our next stop and everything was right there!
I'm going to figure out getting gears and my daughter can start building new ones to sell. The only place to buy the frames right now is in Canada so I think being able to purchase one in the States will be nice.
Rosco is almost finished so I'll post him and the Cheticamp frame next time!
