What I am working on


I have a large book that I altered and am making into an art journal. It's hard to tell from the photo how big it is. It measures approx 24" x 8". I'm still not totally happy with the cover but I will still be working on it. It's called "Very Very Odd Book".



Two pages painted inside. Still more paint needs to be added. I used the design on the left for my next rug hooking project.



Here is my next hooking project. Inspired from my painting above. It is much smaller than my rug. About 12 x 10 or so. I'll be making this into a pillow after it is all hooked.
