Wool

I love working with wool, the first pic is a wallhanging I designed, all wool scallops that are appliqued by hand with wool threads and then tied instead of quilted. The second pic is a penny rug table mat. The background is wool and the circles are a combination of wool and fabric.

How do you catch a rattler? We use a very long stick with a wire on the end to hook the rattler around his neck, this is the tricky part since they can strike the length of their body, and then drop them into a bucket. Then off we go with the snake in the back of my truck to an area that is remote and release the snake, now they do sometimes find their way back like a homing pigeon. So I think we sometimes catch the same snake over and over.

  2. Smiling about catching the same snake over and over ... too bad you can't tag him or something, just out of curiosity.
