Trees in Threes and Trees in Snows

I finished my little Karla G design.  It is called Three Trees.  I loved the color treatment she used on her painting so I stuck pretty close to it for my rug.
   

It was fun to hook, although leaving all the tails on the bottom was a nuisance.  I started hooking normally, with tails on top, but going "across" on the trees resulted in MANY tails!  My plan is to mount it and frame it, so the tails on the back will not be a problem.  The finished rug is 10" x 19" (which happens to be the size of the design on the paper pattern). 

Karla sells paper patterns on ebay.  Search for Karla G or Art by Karla G.  She sends a photo of the way she painted the design (which I used!!!).  She also sends written permission saying you may legally copy and enlarge the pattern to make your rug the size you want.  There are hundreds of images of her art on Google images and lots on Pinterest too.  Lots of inspiration!

Another winter wonderland today.  It is beautiful.  So far we have not lost power... keeping fingers and toes crossed!


 
 

At least the snow is moisture.  If it snows another 50 feet or so, maybe we'll get caught up!

Happy Snow Day!

  3. The use of platinum as a pinnacle precious metal is very much the replica watches of this collection. Usually I have a clear vision on what I think about a watch and its brand, but here I have more mixed feelings of concern and rolex replica sale than anything else. So, humor me a bit as I try and frame it. Specs about the watch, I get to at the end. A blued hand for the pointer rolex submariner replica date further assists legibility and reduces dial clutter, keeping the overall design simple and elegant. The main replica watches sale for this might be that the machines used to produce hands and indices are set up for gold and replica watches platinum such small pieces would be incredibly difficult to craft from platinum, possibly the most challenging metals to work with in the luxury replica watches uk industry.
