I challenged myself back in January to see how long before I would have completed projects. At that time I didn’t know I would be preparing for two shows in March. Now the challenge has a deadline. Well it’s February 12 and I have a few things to show.
This house with trees was based on a rug that was hooked by my brother-in-law, Hank. Hence the name ‘Hank’s House.’ I planned beforehand to use the Lincoln logs as a frame. The punched piece was supposed to fit on top of the side logs, but it somehow wound up being smaller than I planned. So this is also an example of not giving up and finding Plan B. The needle punch hangs freely inside the logs. Looking at the back you can see it is simply attached to carpet tacks. A crocheted floss string becomes the hanger.
Pineapple: the symbol of welcome. Along with the punching, I also did the framing on this myself. In the next day or so I will post pictures on that process.
Now, a sneak preview of the pull toy I am working on….
