I wanted to post pictures of cute little buds forming on my bushes and maybe a patch of green grass... I cannot bring myself to letting everyone see one more snow picture...yes, it is snowing!! We have had at least 12 cm and are expecting another 10cm...for a grand total of approx. 10 inches!!
Instead I will post pics of things that have kept me busy over the past couple of weeks.
The Woodpecker would NOT turn his head for the longest time...it took over 10 minutes. I guess he wanted to show off his pretty red band!
I decided I needed to do a little fabric shopping. It's always nice to add a few new pieces to the stash! Got a little wool too...love it!
Then, I got a little carried away with my desire to build something. I made 2 "Proddy" sticks. Wind a strip of wool around the wood and then cut in the middle for short, manageable pieces.
This picture shows off my ability with a drill...generally, I'm not bad...but this was a little crazy. I was doing this free hand...and well, it wasn't working until I took the whole thing downstairs and secured the wood. The following picture is the finished frame...This is a Proddy Frame.
A close-up of the handmade markers for size of opening. They are a little long..I may take a bit off the bottom. I am going to use the knob ends as legs while working on a table.
The picture below is my idea of a little roll of Jute Webbing! It is actually 72 feet...I nail a small amount to each horizontal piece of wood. My rug material is then attached to the webbing. This allows you to roll the rug into a manageable size to hook or do proddy work. I'm going to have to make a lot of rugs!!
And lastly...I wasn't going to do snow pics...but this is spring in Alberta! The first pic is hubby's foot prints...look at how deep!! I can't repeat what he said going out to his car...The last picture was taken this morning looking out of my studio window...
Have a happy day!
