Final Piece!

The last piece!  Our wrens and their house.  I know it is hard to see, but there are three wrens here--one is on top of the bird house. I will change/add/delete a few details as I hook, I always do!  But this is now ready to transfer to the backing.

OK, still have one section left to design--leaves to hook and add--and I am still designing the ceiling section. 

For scale, Wade is 5' 11" tall.

I feel kind of lost without a hooking piece to go work on!  But to have accomplished this in 4 1/2 months makes me very happy!

New Doll Arrives

I have always loved the dolls made by Izannah Walker.  Of course, even the repros were out of my price range.  I always hoped an Izannah would find her way home to me, but imagine combining an Izannah with my most loved doll medium, hand carved wood--and then imagine her coming to live with me.  Well, I no longer have to imagine, she is now a reality!!
 This pensive, precious little girl may be silent, but she speaks volumes to me.

12 days, just over half done

The cooler, more fall like temps and humidity are really helping me along!
