'Viola'

I made another rug yesterday-oh, yes I did!  I named this one 'Viola' for the blues and purples that I used.  These rugs go pretty fast for me, when I have the fabric yarn all ready to go.  My basket of rag balls has gotten considerably smaller already!  Viola is made from t-shirts (some thrifted and some given to me by lovely friends and relatives-have a t-shirt that's ready for the rag bag-just give it to Holly) and thrifted sheets.

Ahhh-this isn't a viola, it's a dayflower (thanks, Mary!) that I found near the woods.  Yes-I was in the woods again-only this time on the opposite side of my house.  I also found apples, acorns, wild grapes, oak leaves, and pine cones-but daaa!-I didn't have my camera with me.  I need to take it next time.

Oh, and doesn't Rocco look cute there?  He's thinking that I am going to throw this tiny flower for him.  Probably because I throw rotten tomatoes and weeds for him to go and fetch.  In fact, as I was taking photos he started jumping at me so he could grab this wee flower.  A 130 some pound pupper jumping at you-not good!  I love him anyway, though.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, everybody!
