Sea turtle coming to life

I thought I would share with you my most recent project.....Our State Line rug Hookers guild brought Susan Fellers to do a workshop with our guild.  I have been pondering doing a sea turtle for some time---husband is a scuba diver.

I drew this turtle swimming and brought it to the workshop---I knew that I wanted the coloration to be browns and aquas and with Susan's encouragement and her saying "is it believable"  this is what is happening...

Thanks to my friend Jan he turtle's name is Bertha!

Will keep posting progress pictures.


The after and the before of Sarah and Philip's kitchen---now to paint the awful pink and add a backsplash but it is functional.

 Went to the lake for the first time this year to set up---our spot was under water until about 2 weeks ago---what a mess.  We had some water damage in the trailer and couldn't figure out where it came from???  Fred our dog was all tuckered out!

Getting ready to leave on Saturday to teach in Tyler Texas---looking forward to another workshop.  Much to do this week to get ready.

Doing physical therapy for my back and water aerobics ---also exercises on an exercise ball---all very time consuming but hoping it helps my back.

Happy Father's Day!


  1. The sea turtle and its colors are positively beautiful. Kitchen is looking good.
    Hope you continue to improve. Water aerobics does wonders for me too.
    Enjoy Tyler,
