Red Geranium

I am continuing on the Mackinac Island series with a third 5" by 7" mat called Red Geranium.  Anyone who has been to the island is awestruck by the profuse blooming red geraniums, how they grace window boxes everywhere and march in white troughs along the porch of the Grand Hotel.  I figured that any series on Mackinac Island has to include this delight.

Red Geranium, Mackinac Island Series, 2018, 5" x 7", designed and hooked by April D. DeConick, linen foundation with hand-dyed scrap wool.

New Mackinac Island Series

I still have halfway to go around the border of my bench cover with the Bighorn sheep.  Tired of hooking rectangles!  So I pulled out a series of wool snapshot mats that I wanted to do for some time and got started.  This is a series of 5" x 7" photos taken on our summer trips to Mackinac Island.  I don't know how many will finish the series, but here are the two I did this weekend.
