I made a scarecrow for the cabin. There is a great garden center in Ellijay on River Road. For $15 they will help you make your own scarecrow. I realize that I probably should have put more thought into it and brought cool clothes to do a fun one, but it was great fun considering that I have never made one before this. This is the same place that taught me to make a vertical garden.

Garden at the end of Summer

Picture turned upside down. It is still a little wet at this stage, so a bit darker than actual.

I was worried about the puckering which can be caused by not enough stabilizer or uneven stitch density. I was able to block most of it out. The uneven sides were intentional. Life doesn't fit into a neat box.

I started this piece last week. I am working on some soluble with some wool roving. I am doing thread painting on top.

Onyx still looking for a home

Onyx is a two year old full bred husky. He has been with us for two months now and is still looking for a forever home. He is a special dog who needs special handling. He is very sweet and very smart, but needs an experienced dog owner who has the time to work with him. He can be fear aggressive and really needs someone who is willing to gain his trust as well as clearly be his pack leader. Although he was a handful when we first got him, he has now become an awesome dog who loves rough housing with our dog, Sunny.
