There are 3 new Laurel Burch patterns, MIkayla, Canine Friends and Dog Tribe. All available on traditional linen. Fun and colourful patterns that appeal to Laurel Burch fans and dog lovers as well. 

I also have several new patterns in my line, Underwater Dreams and Orca are both availabe as kits. There is a new tab for kits and as I get the dye plans done I will be adding more over the next few months. 

For those of you in the London Ont. area don't forget to come to the OHCG Annual on Sunday April 14th, if you aren't attending the conference, I will be there as a vendor and it sounds like there will be a wonderful show of rugs.

Here is a picture of Songs of New Beginnings done as a pillow. I taught this class a few weeks ago and this pattern was hooked by Diny Warren. Great that she got it hooked so fast and a did a beautiful job. 

I am off to Green Mountain this week for a class with Pam Kirk, she is teaching us how to hook Whimsical Animals which should be very interesting. I am going to hook a tiger in wild and crazy colours, it is picture I took last fall when my sister and I went to the Toronto Zoo.  We will see how it turns out.

It is unfortunate that I had to cancel the Harrowsmith workhsop but as we all know life just sometimes has other plans for people. So I wish those that had to cancel all the best and hope things get better soon. 

The good news is that the Perth class on Oct. 13th is going ahead after all. So if you are interested please email me by Oct 6th to reserve a spot and more information. Workshop fee is $135 and includes the pattern, either the sunflower or loon and the wool to complete it.

- I have been working on this pattern off and on for a few months and decided this week to focus on getting it finished. It was a bit trickier than I first expected and I needed to think about it a bit, which was why it took longer than ususal. I am really pleased with the finished product and think I stayed fairly true to the painting.

This is a quick pattern and fun to hook.  The cat makes me smile every time I look  at it.

The light background one was hooked first and will be used at shows as a pattern sample. I hooked the second one to send off to the Laurel Burch Studio in California and thought I would see how it looks with  a dark background. I can't decide which I like better.
