New things...

 A new hooked squirrel has joined the little owl in the garden. He is munching on an acorn. Feels good to get back to my evening rug hooking.

 I was commissioned by my friend Judi to make a wedding and housewarming present for two friends of ours.
I was able to deliver it to them on our trip up to Napa Valley. We had a great dinner at their new home. I made the parts to resemble their two dogs, cat, their house and guest house and an owl for John and hearts for Susan.
 These are the parts with yarn ready to assemble on the mobile.

 The parts after painting and stitching.....
I think they liked it!
One of the books I am reading right now....very interesting!
