I finished up these cupcakes for a friend. The directions for these are from the book "Warm fuzzies" by Betz White. She has great felted wool projects and nice color photos and directions.
Highly reccomended if you like working with wool.
and the little squirrel is almost finished....I see a few places that I want to re-do. It helps to take a photo now and then and step back to see if anything needs more work. The part that is bothering me is the foot area and back tail. I will rip out a bit and re-hook it tonight. We have our monthly rug hooking meeting tonight and if all goes well we will have a new secretary!
And a few of you have asked me a good place for rug hooking supplies and I have bought my backing and Townsend cutter from Jane Olson in Calif. She has been hooking all her life and knows all there is to know and ships quickly. Her number is 310-643-5902.
Also for a list of lots of suppliers you can check out www.rughookingonline.com ...there are so many different hooks and frames available, it's good to check out photos and talk to your fellow rug hookers if possible.
I love this little calendar that I got for half price on our trip to Calistoga. It makes me want to create my own calendar with rug hooked creatures for each month.
