Hooking again!

Group photo of the 3 owls I have at the moment. The newest one is on the right back. I will be teaching a rug hooking class at ARtfiberfest in October and wanted to have some "owl" samples. I think I may hook a weird owl in non-owl colors, just for fun and to spark some new ideas.

My new owl...and a close up of the face.
And I just finished up this little squirrel holding an acorn. The squirrels around our yard are busy nibbling on young pine cones and leaving their left overs in the driveway. It's hard to see the acorn, but it's there and a new addition to my squirrel design.
And last night I hooked a little pumpkin face....another sample for class. I want to make a few more with different expressions....this guy is kind of glum.
Close up of face. I used some recycled blanket wool mixed in with regular weight hooking wool.
We have our Quarterly Hook-in this Sunday at Maren's home...we will reveal our "Fauna" pieces....which reminds me that I need to get mine finished up and made into a pillow!

These are wonderful owls! I think it's a great idea to do one in non-owl colors. Go wild!

Oh it looks like you like to do dimensional rug hooking too. Love the look of your owls and the squirrel. Good luck with the class. I am going to be adding you to my blog favorites.
