I had a great chuckle when I opened Sandra's email. The pup has a mug full of personality and seems unaware there are cats sneaking by under the radar. Turn around big guy and start the chase! Truly this rug is a gift from the heart and hand. Great job...it's a ruff life you lead! I love the vibrancy of the colours that tonally balance the rug and the way the blues cast an oceany glow. The clever swirls give the water a little extra zing and imply moment. I adore everything about this rug; the fun, the colours, the hooking and the sentiment behind it! Thanks for sharing!
This piece was originally hooked by my friend Susan Leslie. She used yarn for the mouse whiskers and plaids for the rocks. The tail is a mixture of solids and plaids from her extensive wool stash. The cat, a real poser, seems more interested in reclining in Garfield fashion rather than chasing down dinner. Who needs to go looking for food when you're a ham!
