Christmas Over for Another Year

Well, I stayed home and enjoyed myself on my days off. Having finished the Santa's, it was back to the Icons of NL project.

Here is the second to last of the icons, an Orca whale and her baby. Living in the middle of the North Atlantic, whales, porpoises are certainly all around us. I can remember two autumns ago, watching the porpoises put on a little show in the bay. Jumping, twisting and playing. Better than any show with animals in captivity.

One more icon to go and then, the top border to complete this project. And already, thinking of the next one.


  1. It's looking great Julie! I've lost your email ... I am looking for a good book with which to start hooking. Any suggestions of one with good illustrations from hooking the rug to finishing? I know the videos you directed me too, but I'd like a book as well. I am itchy to get started! I was thinking about the Rug Hooker's Bible by Jane Olson. What do you think?

  2. Nice Julie, this reminds me of a Deanne Fitzpatrick pattern.


  3. Just love it, Julie. Excited about seeing the completion. Now I wish I were hooking again.
