Here are the class projects from the Ali/Maria creative workshop. I tried to get all the projects, but I'm not sure if I succeeded. If I've left any one out, I do apologize.
Isn't this snowman hooked with hand torn strips on an old oil can too cute? A few embellishments were going to be added.

This snowman was almost 3 dimensional.
This will become a pillow. The background was rug punched.
LOTS of little quillies!
Here's my dirty snowman. I'd never hooked on wool before. I always thought you needed a loosely woven wool, but that is not the case. This is a wonderful barn red wool (NOT orangey at all!!!) that is tightly woven. Using my Hartman primitive hook, I hooked with an 8 1/2 cut. It was different, but not difficult. Now that I've taken a picture, I see that I will need to hook a darker strip around the left eye so it doesn't look like he's got "ring around the eye".
I'd never needle felted before and I wasn't very good at it. Ali had to rescue my hat and cardinal from being a blob of roving.
Unfortunately, I need to put my snowman aside and work on a few Christmas presents. I just realized that Thanksgiving is only two weeks from tomorrow. Ack! How did that happen? At least it is early this year!
A BIG thank you to Melinda of Merry Wind Farm!!! She graciously offered me a place to stay while in Tipp City. Please stop by her blog if you haven't already done so. This woman is an amazing hooker and stitcher of reproduction samplers. I am talking HUGE samplers. She puts me to shame. She needs to share more of her work on her blog. I can't say enough good things about her work and she is just so darned sweet. It was a real pleasure getting to know her :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
