Mat Teaser!

Here is my summer mat teaser! It is a small mat of my mom's schnauzer, Buddy, who passed away a couple of years ago. I don't want to spoil my mom's surprise of how it turns out, so this is just a portion.

The summer is just whizzing by, and look, it's August tomorrow already. I have been enjoying the lovely weather, but I can already see and feel the subtle changes!

Summer Update!

Well, it has been just over one month since I last posted. The summer is going along, now in full swing and we on the West Coast of NL, have been enjoying wonderful weather. We are not baking like the rest of Canada and the mid west USA, but it is hot and dry for us, often in the mid 20s.

I just finished my Weezie mat and I must say, I did capture Weezie's face perfectly. She is looking right at the camera with soft eyes. Sometimes, during the hooking of this mat, I would put my frame down on the floor beside me and when I would go to get up, it was almost as if Weezie was there on the floor waiting for me. We all miss this special little friend and I think of her often.

I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather and taking some time for yourselves.
