Busy with new projects

Today I finished off some new projects, one I cannot show, it is a surprise gift;)
One item was made for a customer who needed a name tag to wear to her rug hook ins.
She loves my fraktur dogs, so I made her one with them and her name. I think it came out great and would be fun to make more.

The next item is a piece I made for ebay. I wanted to try the spotted horse in a fraktur and it was fun to do. I made it all in my hand dyed wools and a couple as is wools. I used cotton floss to whip stitch and blanket stitch the pieces. The yarn is a bumpy type yarn and it made a great stem and vines. If you like this piece, you can find it on my ebay site.

I also worked on my big runner, so maybe someday I will have a finished picture of it. I also have a million other projects going and will be doing up the cat and dog pattern next, for those of you who have requested it.
