Well I finally finished this rug for my brother Gary and his wife Chris. This is their wedding present. They were married on
November 23, 2007 and this cabin is actually the cabin they
purchased in Vermont. My good friend Debbie (woolensails) helped me out and drew the cabin on linen for me from an actual picture of the cabin and did a beautiful job. I asked her to add the trees and the moose. Everything else is exactly the way the picture looked. I dyed all the wool in this rug except the sky which I purchased
from Norma Batastini and it turned out exactly like I wanted it to be. I'm anxious to give it to them. I guess by now they think they aren't getting a webbing gift! I have some other stuff to show you but that will be in the
next posting. Just so busy right now with so many different projects. So until next time enjoy this weather and hope everyone is doing just fine!
Blessings to all my dear friends..................Cyndi

Background almost finished

I think that says it all. I like how her name is now a secret message.

I posted in the Snippets main blog about a class I took yesterday. This is a photo of my sampler that I began in class. I plan to keep working on it until it is a nice size for a chair mat. They work up quickly! The center is a standing wool coil, and the next layer is shirred. I am forming the coils into teardrops on the current outside edge. Who knows where it will go next!
This photo shows the bee skep that I am working on for JoEllen's beeskep tutorial. There will be three pieces made like this, and then joined to make a 3 dimensional bee skep with an additional circle for the bottom. I'm challenged with the contrast of the bees and might change them to light yellow. Just another of the projects that I'm working on!
