The Pillow's back was embellished with an oval shaped piece of fused Angelina Fiber which was heat stamp embossed with a Dragonfly, then the perimeter was beaded and attached .
To join the front and backpieces I made a black cotton fabric ruffle and stitched it by hand. To stuff the pillow I made an oval shaped case and filled it with goose feathers...ahhhhh,nice !
The Valley Forge Rug Braiders Guild , of which I am a member, posted a Braided Rug Flower Challenge to be entered by May 2010 to be judged at the Annual Braid-in Weekend Workshop with the only pre-requisite that each piece be at least 50% braided.
So, I decided to make a braided black backing to be used with the hooked Petula front . Here I am lacing a contrasting woolen border braid onto the black oval, which was braided with strips of black polyester suede and satin.
This hooking project was started last Summer during a heat spell which kept me indoors with the AC ON !
I saw the "Petula " pattern in a Rug Hooking Magazine which inspired me to use up all those left over wool
pieces I had collected

I just loved the Critter that Wendy designed and brought to the workshop and my Troll Critter Bobo looks like quite similar .....he wants a companion .......and here we are showing off our newly created Polymer Clay sculpted creatures....
The American Embroidery Guild of America, Covered Bridge Chapter, of which I am a member, has a group of ladies who have been meeting for several years specializing in beading. The Needle Arts issue September 2009 included a Bead work project designed by Carolyn Sherman, we decided to make.
