Ship Blue Nose, Rabbit hooked rug, Tatted CQ Rat and Willie

  The Bluenose is one of the most famous schooners in the world. She was built in Nova Scotia in 1921, and sailed the fishing banks off the cost of Newfoundland until she sunk on a reef near Haiti in 1946 in 1946. She was the centerpiece of Canada’s exhibition at the 1933 “Century of Progress” exhibition in Chicago, and its likeness is still found on the Canadian dime. On the quilt block, the Bluenose schooner is surrounded by a wreath of Canadian maple leaves. The wreath halves are joined by a stylized crown which is found on Canada’s national emblem.

Ms Rabbit, the Flag Lady is finished. It is a hooked rug wall hanging.

Bday gift for my sister. These are so easy to make up, just think about a Christmas Tree with them. It is a tatted snowflake with a bead in center. It is attached to the bracelet only at the top. The rest is free standing and when hung in a window on a sunny day, it just sparkles light all over the room. For it to hang U need to tat a small circle with Ps and chain down and connect to the ring and back up attaching to the first P. That will create a hanger insert. It is tatted with size 40 Lizbeth thread.
The pattern is "First Snowfall" by     Robin Perfetti

Oh my, they look delicious!!

Thank U Mom for the treat!!

Finished another Crazy Quilt Hexie. Under the strawberry plant is a beaded white Rat eating a strawberry!
