Wool Snapshots Class: Finished Pieces 2

Jean Boeckeler sent me photos of her finished 7" by 7" pieces.  She started both of them in the Green Mountain Rug Camp. 

One is Max, her husband's devoted cat.  What I love about this piece is Jean's choice of contrast and color with the purple blanket.  The photo showed a cream blanket that didn't do much for the image.  But wow the purple gives the whole mat a feeling of happiness.  Note too the great plaid background hooked linearly and the whiskers embroidered on top of the hooking. 

The other is her daughter as a bride at her wedding in 2013.  Jean remembers how lovely her daughter looked with gorgeous flowers and a pearl headband that she grabbed at the last minute.  Jean embellished the hair with simple pearl beads in memory of that moment.
