Another Beautiful Winter Morning

After the snow and freezing rain of yesterday, the scenery I encountered when I fed the critters this morning was delightful. A thin coat of ice and snow on the trees and bushes, but not enough to do damage. I could hear the ice cracking delicately with each breeze.

Here is another experiment in lockerhooking, this time with natural-colored roving and created on the sort of canvas grid that is used for rug-hooking. I then did a few embroidery stitches and decided it doesn't work. Now I'm not so sure, I kind of like it. Opinions?


Thank you Rayna, glad you're enjoying the photos. Anyone interested in surface design should take a look at Rayna's blog. She has also authored a book about creating your own hand-printed fabric; information about the book can be accessed through her blog.

I love your blog. I love seeing the animals.
I am a rug hooker from Missouri.
I will be watching.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I love your combo of locker hook and embroidery! I think there's all sorts of fun possibilities there. I really like the randomness of your stitches contrasted with the regularity of the locker stitch on this one.
